Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Jon Acuff, a book for those who want relief from always starting and never being done.
Jon Acuff, sought-after speaker and consultant, is the friend who always gives you great advice. With his self-deprecating humor and charm, he has won over hundreds of thousands of followers who come to him for both encouragement and a kick in the pants. Now, after showing you how to reboot your career in his New York Times best seller Do Over, Acuff shows chronic starters how to actually finish their goals in an age of bottomless distractions and endless opportunities.
Acuff knows the reason why many writers' novels go unfinished - it's the same reason why gyms are filled in the first week of January and empty by the end of the month and why people stop learning a new language once they get past the easy parts. It's not just that people lose momentum or get distracted. People give up on projects when they fail to live up to their own high expectations and decide that if they can't do something perfectly, they won't do it at all. If you're going to finish, you have to kill perfectionism.
Drawing on his popular 30 Days of Hustle course, Acuff teaches listeners to short-circuit perfectionism and make it through to the end of a task. Whether it's by "choosing what to bomb" or "cutting a goal in half", he shows listeners how to move past "the day after perfect", get focused, and - finally - finish.

Do yourself a favor and read this book

This was exactly what I needed in this season of my life. Just like Jon said, starting things doesn't seem to be my issue. It's finishing them. There are so many great moments in this book. It seemed like he was in my head. Many times I found myself saying "Yes! That's me!" He makes the book fun through humor and no pressure action steps. I don't have to do them. I get to. Like a new adventure. Excited to have finished this in a matter of days and to implement the steps to allow myself to finally finish some long overdue goals. Imperfect action is better than perfect procrastination. This book helped me remember that.

Inspiring, convecting, encouraging

I have started may projects big and small, I also have many ideas that I have yet to start or complete because of fear. This book was mentioned to me a couple days ago, so I started and finished it today. I was challenged in areas of my life and inspired and encouraged to step out and start a project without a perfectionist mindset. My perfectionist mindset has killed a lot of my willing to step out and risk because I don't want to fail. After listening to Jon, my eyes have been opened to this mindset and I will start to FINISH.

Fantastic Strategies, Super Useful! 😍

Loved this audiobook. Some great strategies and practical tactics help you get things done and avoid the paralysis of perfectionism. Author has some funny lines but I feel like he maybe tries a little too hard to be funny too often as I found myself drifting off during some of the stories. Awesome listen all round though! :)

Pretty solid read.

No airy fairy wafting, well defined steps, and realistic visions of where to go next. More on maintaining discipline would have been appreciated, but some of it was a solid kick up the back side to get going.
