3Gaps – Are You Making a Difference
The 3Gaps book, 3Gaps: Are You Making a Difference, focuses on three “gaps” that limit individual and organizational access to inner peace and productivity. Closing those three gaps requires the application of three skills: connecting your activities to your values; connecting your beliefs to that which will meet your needs over time; and connecting the things you plan and do each day to your goals and aspirations.
In this new book, Hyrum does two things that are invaluable to people who wish to make their lives less painful. First, he reveals how our behavior can be the source of our problems and second, he provides the steps that must be taken to identify and rectify the beliefs leading to our painful behavior.
In an age of unprecedented prosperity and opportunity, there are still many who feel that something is missing in their lives: “I’ve achieved success and am on the fast track in my career, I’m respected by my peers, I have a great family and all the toys and perks that I could possibly want. Why don’t I feel a stronger sense of fulfillment, or any real happiness inside? Why does life feel so empty?” In What Matters Most, best-selling author and speaker Hyrum W. Smith outlines compelling reasons for this dissatisfaction.
Written for anyone who suffers from “time famine”, this essential handbook provides simple, effective methods for successfully taking control of one’s hours–and one’s life. Smith shows how, by managing time better, anyone can lead a happier, more confident and fulfilled life.
In good times and bad, in times of economic downturn and times of wartime peril, we as Americans have shown our mettle. There is something in the historical DNA of this people – a resilience, a power, a talent for innovation, a unique and empowering bravery – that has carried us forward as a nation and a people for nearly 250 years. This audio book is about this history, this inheritance, this people. These characteristics apply not just to the people of the United States as a whole, but to each of us as individuals. Whether we are leaders, followers, friends, co-workers, parents, spouses, partners or simply sojourners in this thing we call life – it is rare for us to see those we care about suffer and not want to change their circumstances or alleviate their suffering. It is an almost in-born trait that we as individuals and as a nation tend to seek ways to overcome the challenges we periodically face.
Home of the Brave is about meeting our individual challenges and the challenges of those we care about and care for. It is about finding the time-proven principles in the historical DNA of great Americans that we can draw on – not only for strength but for practical insight and action that can make even the most challenging times more manageable, even conquerable.

In business and in life we often find ourselves facing the same challenge Roman gladiators faced–act or be acted upon. In his new book, The Modern Gladiator Smith shows how success today depends upon our training and tools, just as it did in the time of the Romans. To conquer his or her battles today, the modern gladiator must acquire training and experience as a shield and the tolls of personal productivity as the short sword that was the key to the rise of the Roman Empire.

Pain is Inevitable, Misery is Optional
No one wants to experience pain. But there seems to be “no other way” to teach us some of the valuable lessons of wisdom and humility, patience and endurance that we need to experience in this life. Though pain comes to us in different ways — sometimes self-inflicted, sometimes a natural result of mortality — there are things we can do to minimize our misery and maximize our learning, regardless of its source. This book explores how understanding our heritage as sons and daughters of God, learning to take the Spirit as our guide, avoiding self-deception, and accepting the Atonement can all help us deal better with the pain that will inevitably come into our lives.
