A New Way to Dream...Review of the book Quitter

The new book by the national bestseller and creator of the blog Stuff Christians Like, Jonathan Acuff will be on sale starting May 10th. The book is called "Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job & Your Dream Job." I was honored to be one of just a few people to get a chance to read an advance copy of the book. Today I would like to give you my review of the book.
Quitter is the story of how Jonathan Acuff was able to turn his dream job into his day job. Jonathan was working for Auto Trader as a tech writer, but what he wanted to be was a book author. Jonathan talks about some on the struggles of realizing his dream job without destroying his life. The book encourages people to find ways to reach their goals and look for unique ways to do what they love. The two ideas that I found the most helpful were "Removing the `I'm' from Your `But'" and "Falling in Like with a Job You don't Love."
Jonathan found that when he was talking to people about what they did for a living or for life they would say, "I'm a ____, but I want to be ______. I know for me that I've said at times that I'm only doing this job, until I can get a real job. And in some of my jobs I've thought were dream jobs, turned out to be nightmares. This book has helped me look at my career, my profession, and my dreams in new ways. And the chapter on falling in like with your job has encouraged me to see my job and career as a tool to my dreams.
I think this book is great for those who just feel they are spinning their wheels in their job. It can be an encouragement to spouses who want to support their loved ones with their dreams. And it is a fun read about how someone worked hard to reach their dreams. I encourage you to give it a read.
