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?
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.” “I’m a CPA, but I’d love to start my own business.”
“I’m a _____, but I want to be a ______.”
All too often, we hear that dreaming big means you quit your day job, sell everything you own, and move to Guam. But what if there were a different way?
What if you could blow up your dream without blowing up your life?
What if you could go for broke without going broke?
What if you could start today?
What if you already had everything you needed to begin?
From figuring out what your dream is to quitting in a way that exponentially increases your chance of success, Quitter is full of inspiring stories and actionable advice. This book is based on 12 years of cubicle living and my true story of cultivating a dream job that changed my life and the world in the process.
It’s time to close the gap between your day job and your dream job.
It’s time to be a Quitter.
There are friends (I might be one of them) who will tell you, "Quit your job and follow your dream." But Jon Acuff is smarter than that. Quitter is about going from cubicle-bound to Outward Bound without committing financial and marital hara-kiri along the way - and actually succeeding in the end. This book is wise, personal, funny and loaded with practical, real-world insights from Mr. Acuff's own ongoing odyssey. If you're torn between living your dream and putting food on the table for the wife and kids, don't make a move till you read Quitter. Steven Pressfield bestselling author of The War of Art and Do the Work
Quitter will entertain, enlighten and challenge you to commit yourself to Mondays Of Joy instead of looking forward to the weekend so you can finally live. Tim Sanders New York Times Bestselling author of Today We Are Rich, former Yahoo! executive and a quitter
Over the last few years, I've watched Jon turn a small "what if" idea into a full-on dream job. This is not a book of theories or half-baked concepts. It was born in the crucible of one man's experience. It is full of news you can use. Now. In your own life. If you are ready for a field manual for creating your dream job, this is your answer to prayer. Michael Hyatt chairman, Thomas Nelson Publishers
We all have dreams of doing something great with our lives - and sometimes we think this involves quitting everything we know. Quitter addresses this topic with enthusiasm and wit. If you're serious about following your dreams, this book is a must-read. Craig Groeschel senior pastor of Lifechurch.tv, author of Weird: Because Normal Isn't Working
