Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done

Available in: Hardcover
"While leading a thirty-day online course to help people work on their goals, [the author] learned something surprising: the most effective exercises were not those that pushed people to work harder. The ones that got people to the finish line did just the opposite--they took the pressure off. Why? Because the sneakiest obstacle to meeting your goals is not laziness, but perfectionism. We're our own worst critics, and if it looks like were not going to do something right, we prefer not to do it at all"--Amazon.com.

Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work That Matters

Available in: Hardcover

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 readers practical, actionable insights to be more awesome, more often.
