Wall Street Journal best-selling author Jon Acuff reveals the steps to getting unstuck and back onto the path of being awesome. Over the last 100 years, the road to success for most everyone has been divided into predictable stages. But three things have changed the path to success: Boomers are realizing that a lot of the things they were promised aren't going to materialize, and they have started second and third careers. Technology has given access to an unprecedented number of people who are building online empires and changing their lives in ways that would have been impossible years ago. The days of "success first, significance later" have ended. While none of the stages can be skipped, they can be shortened and accelerated. There are only two paths in life: average and awesome. The average path is easy because all you have to do is nothing. The awesome path is more challenging, because things like fear only bother you when you do work that matters. The good news is Start gives listeners practical, actionable insights to be more awesome, more often.
I enjoy reading Jon Acuff's books, however, I enjoy listening to him narrate the books even more. The content is good as usual but the way Jon delivers his message is great. He's a very gifted public speaker and I really enjoy listening to him deliver his message with humor and humility and in a way that captures your attention and keeps you engaged, even while a million other thoughts fight for your attention. I especially like when he goes off script and shares little tidbits not in the book. Download the audio book, you'll be happy you did.
