Publisher's Summary

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.

Sounds like a lazy dreamers story...

Could be condensed to one page- the rest is a story of a self rationalizing kid.

Love it!

It reminds me of the slight edge, but different and updated. The author cracks me up as is reading his work! Definitely great to listen to on audible.

Why I can't summarize this book

I summarize books I read. These summaries consist of quotes or paraphrases of what I find interesting, new, useful, or worth recollecting. Not this book. With Start, were I to quote or paraphrase all I found interesting, new, useful, and worth recollecting, I would repeat so much it would rightly be called wholesale plagiarism. This is an excellent book, full of useful information for anyone starting out in their 20s, regardless of how old they are.

I feel like this audible app has me hostage. I'm u

this is a giant pain in the bum. I'm not enjoying the process. I paid for the book, why am I required to review.

Another great, and helpful book.

This book is such an easy listen and read. I have listened to this book several times, and always find myself coming back to it, and Quitter.

Loved it

Just what I needed, wish I listened months ago as the truth and message would have helped me as I quit my job to pursue full time youth ministry.
5 stars to help Jon sleep better at night :)
