Quitter a great audible book review
So your having one of those days where your ready to give up. Jon Acuff has a great plan on how to rethink your next move. I loved this book I actually started listening to it again today. Jon caught my attention when he told me he had eight jobs in eight years, great story.
I started to listen to the book because I was having one of my days. You know those days when your ready to quit, give up move on with life already. Well I got a big surprise, this book was more about keeping your day job while building on your dream. I have heard this thought before but his delivery, his rough and scary experiences help to pull me back in off that jump and keep doing what I'm doing.Building my dream instead of adding more pain then happiness.
I'm not exaggerating I hung on his every word, it was so real at times I would laugh out loud. He called it the reverse superman; I wont give it away but rushing from a dream gig and changing in the restroom stall to rush to your cubicle can be an emotional so close but not there yet.
I would recommend this book to everyone I know because I get phone calls all the time from friends and family ready to quit, but when you ask them whats their next step they have no ideal. What affected me the most was I don't want to start working on my dream only to realize the income is not coming in and now I'm being held back by eveyday living expenses.
Quitter is a very young and fun story of a young mans journey to his deam job.It's filled with moments everyone can relate to and his personality was kind of contagious and it was easy to listen to.
This was so me
Looking back at some of the reasons why I said I quit, there was one factor that seemed to stay the same. I had at least three horrible bosses. The one that knew it all there for why was I there, the one that lived at worked and wanted us to spend nights there too, and the one who had no clue about staffing and seemed to always pull me to stay late.
I quit on all of them, but did it get me to where I want to be now? Nooooo, it did save me some stomach pains but I wish I would have learned that coping skill the first time so I didn't have to go through it thee times.
This is a journey and we don't have set itinerary, I have to keep myself in check because when summer rolls around, there is a pool with my name on it. Cant just blame summer, in the winter warm coffee and a good book could keep me in for days, but back on subject.
This book was was one of the good ones, I didn't feel like I needed to go buy more of his products, it just really gets in your head on a personal level and talks you through the next big move.
