ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Power of 1440
Author: Tim Timberlake
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: March 9, 2021
Genre: Christian Life/Personal Growth
A thirty-day story-driven manual to celebrate the importance and blessing of each of the 1,440 minutes we are given every day, written by an up-and-coming lead pastor of a global church. The son of a preacher, eighteen-year-old Tim Timberlake’s tragic and painful personal story of the sudden loss of his father began his journey toward seeing the benefit and blessing of each day. And not just to get through it, but to exhaust every opportunity of potential of that day, moment by moment, fulfilling his God-given purpose. Today Pastor Tim inspires others to approach each day with its 1,440 minutes in a way that they live out their own God-given purposes and passions. Comprised of thirty bite-size chapters, The Power of 1440 is a day-by-day manual to help readers deal with topics like forgiveness, perspective, mistakes, rest, and living a life that matters. He says, “Win some, learn some . . . but never lose.” Every day should be magnificent, not mundane; filled with delight, not drudgery; and a grand adventure, not a grind. It is possible to make today and every day truly remarkable.
READ AN EXCERPT
TODAY IS ALL YOU’VE GOT
Those words— Today is all you’ve got— are more than the caption on a cat poster or a slogan on a meme. It is more than an inspirational thought on a greeting card.
Trying to unlock the power of 1440 in your life without under-standing the truth of “today is all you’ve got” would be like trying to start your car without the key. It’s theoretically possible but a whole lot harder. Here’s what you need to know.
The past is gone. Totally beyond your reach or your ability to control. You can try to repair damage done in the past or relive a moment that was pleasurable— but only today.
The future is a fantasy and also completely outside your grasp. You can prepare for the tomorrow you want or take steps to avoid one you’d rather not live through today and nowhere else.
Sure, your personality is made up of your memories and your aspirations. But the part of your life you actually live, without exception, is the part happening right in front of you right now.
Imagine you are going on a trip tomorrow. You can pack your bag today, plan what you will do when you get there, buy a ticket, and book an Uber to the airport. But there is no way to get on the plane and travel across country until tomorrow. That moment has to arrive in the present before you can live it, so why bother trying? That’s what worry is about: trying to live a moment that is either long gone or hasn’t yet arrived.
Why is it so important to grasp this fact? Because your biggest enemies in the quest for a more abundant and rewarding life can seem like big, bad warlords who are seriously entrenched in these two provinces of your mind: the past and the future. Time— any time but the present—i s the part of your life occupied by all your worry, fear, doubt, anxiety, guilt, anger, boredom, and regret. Try to live there instead of today, and more often than not you’ll take a beating from thoughts that don’t serve you now.
