Made me self reflect and I identify problem areas
I am not scared of the "learning" phase anymore
In summary it gave me a deeper desire to live an "awesome life"
I became familiar with the author from his "Stuff Christians Like" book and enjoy his wit
& humor. We are kindred spirits.
I'm also a management & business book enthusiast. And honestly Jon did better here then I assumed he might. That said I'm between a John C Maxwell & Jim Collins Good to Great book. Kind of deeper in the pool.
BUT this was inspiring and motivating in ways those aren't, and may just be feeding a niche those other authors neglected. And so, where my soon to graduate High School son and my wife might NEVER pick up a John Maxwell book, I'm insisting he give this one a listen before college enrollment.
Jon Acuff is amazing. He is full of life knowledge. I found the book to be real and inspiring. Sometimes authors portray their lives as perfect; however, Jon provides suggestions based upon his own experience.
I don't know if I've ever listened to such an engaging audio book. It felt more like an inspiring public speech rather than an audio book.
That is just a bonus. The information provided in this book encourages the listener to pursue their own talents and passions by giving practical and honest advice on how to do it. It's awesome!
Great mix of inspiration and practical steps. The feel of the book was lighthearted while still maintaining a level of seriousness that is necessary when talking about taking action steps to "start" the road to where you want to be.
I was expecting more of a how to book. Jon is funny and crazy wise. Jon has so many great one liners that I would like to go through the book and write them down to consider longer. They are pithy, catchy and with remembering. I loved this book and I will get Jon's other book because this one is so good.
