    "Have you ever felt caught between the tension of a day job and a dream job? That gap between what you have to do and what you’d love to do? I have. At first I thought I was the only one who felt that way, but then I started to talk to people and realized we’re becoming the “I’m, but” generation. When we talk about what we do for a living we inevitably say, 'I’m a teacher, but I want to be an artist.'"

    Mike says: "It passed the time, but lacked what I was seeking"
    "Jon Acuff is a great writer and reader"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this audiobook. The main reason is because it is read by the author himself. The book is good, and it makes it so much better to hear it read from the author because he reads it with passion and enthusiasm. I also like how he goes "off-script" at a few points in the reading to further explain something or bring something that came up after the writing of the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The points that Acuff makes are very clear and well taught. He gives good examples from his own life and is a very good teacher. I like that he starts the book by saying "don't quit your day job." (Mind you, the name of the book is "Quitter" so most readers might be picking it up with much enthusiasm about kicking their day job to the curb and going out on their own venture.)


    Have you listened to any of Jon Acuff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have heard Acuff speak for Financial Peace University, but he only did one session. It was good to hear more performance from him, on a topic that seemed closer to his own heart.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    “Hustle isn't just doing the things you love all the time. Hustle is doing the things you don't enjoy sometimes to earn the right to do the things you love.”

    “When you keep your day job, all opportunities become surplus propositions rather than deficit remedies. You only have to take the ones that suit your dream best.”

    “I know it sounds crazy, but people with jobs tend to have more creative freedom than people without.”
