As I’ve mentioned here before, I’m a huge Jon Acuff fan. He’s hilariously funny, he’s an amazingly talented writer, and he has a way of communicating truths in a way I’ve seen few bloggers be able to do (see his post today, How to Be Humble, for example). Many of his posts have had a major impact on my life and have challenged me to step out do something different than the status quo.
I was privileged to spend the day with Jon, his wife, Jenny, and their daughters earlier this year when I attended Women of Faith in Indianapolis (yes, Jon was at Women of Faith. He and Todd Smith were a little outnumbered! :)). Let me tell you, these folks are the real deal.
You know what I appreciate most about Jon and Jenny? They are all about celebrating other people. They’ve had some amazing accomplishments in their lifetime so far (Jon speaks all over the world, he’s a Wall Street Journal best-selling author, has a huge blog following, oh and he works for this guy named Dave Ramsey, to mention just a few things), but they are so down-to-earth and genuinely excited about others’ successes.
I ordered Jon’s book, Quitter, the day it was first available to pre-order, that’s how excited I was about it. And it didn’t disappoint. In typical Jon Acuff style, Quitter is engaging, hard-hitting, inspiring, and hard to put down.
While I’m not looking to be quitting anything in my life right now (well, except my bad habits!), I gleaned so much from this book. In fact, as I was reading it, I realized so many areas in my business that need tweaking.
If you feel stuck in your job, if you are struggling to find employment, or you just want to some direction on how to meld your passions with your profession, I’d highly recommend Quitter. It will make you think, it will make you laugh, and it will provide some excellent suggestions to help you find your “sweet spot” of doing what you love and getting paid for it.
