But the advice Acuff doles out in FINISH is much-needed medicine, as well. It's amazing to me that anyone can be so funny and still be spot on. The book does a great job of identifying the obstacles and myths that sabotage our ability to finish what we start. I've seen a lot of myself in the book -- especially in the chapters about perfectionism and how paralyzing that mindset can be. It's the kind of advice that needs to be followed, in a book that begs to be shared. Every few pages, I think of somebody else I want to read it. We've already ordered five more copies (and counting) to pass along to family and friends
He deals with the lies Perfectionism (the antagonist) throws at us all along the way of trying to reach our goals. It begins the lies before we start and employs different tactics right up to the finish line.
Each chapter come with a set of action questions or steps which encourage the reader to carry out the lessons learned in the chapter. This book is set up to help the reader succeed all the way through.
I was able to complete my goal of writing 34,000 words in a book over an eight week period this summer. Much of my success is because of this book. I would not have seen through perfectionism's lies and pushed forward without it.
Go ahead, add the book to your cart, then Finish the purchase and get it on the way to you.
