confessions: start your dream now. just start.

Start by Jon Acuff


Jon Acuff, who created Stuff Christians Like (one of my favorite blogs) and Quitter (a book that I re-read every six months or so because it is so helpful), is launching his latest book, Start. This one is shaping up to be a life-changer.

This is his premise:

Growing up, we dreamed. And our dreams always painted the portrait of the adult us living an awesome life… as an astronaut, a pro wrestler, a movie star, a bee keeper, or insert your dream here. We don’t set out for average. But that’s exactly where we end up after listening to our fears day after day, year after year. Our dreams take a back seat and eventually are left stranded by the side of the road.

That’s why I’ve written Start. Your dream is calling, and it’s closer than you might think. It’s time to go after your purpose. Every awesome life goes through five stages. Learn what they are. Do them. Start.

Intrigued? You should be. You know there’s something that you’re waiting to start. In a world where information, communication and awesomeness are all within our grasp, now is the best time to Start.

More of Acuff’s wisdom:

Being “ready” is a myth… Start now. You have permission to be horrible… Do what gives you joy…

You can change the entire race by the way you live. Run the race better.

“When you learn new things, your brain gets younger. This road is a loop to the fountain of youth.”

Disclaimer: I’m a member of the Start book launch team, which means I’ve been given a few sneak peeks to the book’s content and Jon Acuff’s Start Night video replays. That means I’m confident and passionate that this book is worth your time and may in fact change your life.
