    Quarterly Unstuck Church Report

Jon AcuffA few months ago I had the opportunity to interview Jon Acuff as his new book Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average, Do Work That Matters. You can listen to his interview in the Watch + Listen section of the site.

I wanted to circle back and share a few highlights that popped out to me from the book. In addition to enjoying Jon’s clever wit, these 12 thoughts grabbed my attention:

  1. “Life is now less about how old you are and more about when you decide to live.”
  2. “Average is so popular because average is familiar.”
  3. “Waiting to find your purpose tomorrow is a great way to ensure you don’t live with purpose today.”
  4. Luck is a word people who are lazy use to describe people who are hustling.”
  5. “They are the voices of fear and doubt, and they are governed by a simple truth: they only get loud when you do work that matters.”
  6. “Spend more time practicing your dream than you do promoting your dream.”
  7. “I think you need crazy expectations. You can’t dream without creating expectations, and they can be an encouraging source of motivation.”
  8. “People don’t like working with jerks. People don’t listen to jerks. People don’t do favors for jerks. Because people don’t want jerks to win.”
  9. “The truth is that if you’re married, awesome is a team sport.”
  10. “No one pursuing a life of average ever received a dire warning of failure from a family member.”
  11. “Helping other people better their lives is way more fun than obsessing about bettering your own.”
  12. “Action always beats intention.”

It’s time for you to start!
