Présentation de l'éditeur

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?

I have.

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 have everything you need 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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Buy Quitter now 31 août 2011
Par slamb817 - Publié sur
I feel like a jerk telling you to read this book. I loved reading it but hated the implications. Jon Acuff cuts right through all the crappy excuses that we put between us and our dreams. This book haunts me a month after I finished it. I can't fritter away time on the internet anymore with a clear conscience. I wake up earlier so I can take time to write and focus my thoughts for the day. I find myself trying harder and doing more work at work. It sucks. I miss my life as a slacker.

Acuff writes from his own experiences not in a show off way but in a clever way that gives him credibility. I laughed and cried a little, but in a cool way, not an overly emotional wreck kind of way. Acuff is ridiculously likable which is probably best for him because if I didn't like him, I might try to kick him in the shins for suggesting that a work ethic in your current job will help you prepare for your future dream job.

If you're taking time to read this review, you obviously have time to read something more substantial like a book. Go ahead and buy Quitter. Read it yourself. Give it to your whiny friends who can't figure out why they're not living their dreams. Call your brother or sister and read it to them over the phone. Give it to your kid in the basement who thinks it's normal to live with parents 10 years after graduating from college. You could also do what I did and give this book away with a break up note to your boyfriend, gently implying the relationship is doomed because he won't put away the X Box and become a grownup. So yeah, buy Quitter once, buy it twice, buy an entire case of books. I know you know people who should read it. My guess is you might be one of them, too.

I feel like I know Jon Acuff better after reading this book, but feel no closer to closing the gap between my dream job and my day job. Insights, but nothing revelatory. As someone who has considered alternatives to my day job for longer than a few hours, each of the ideas presented in this book has already crossed my mind. I also felt like the book was geared toward someone whose "dream" was similar to Jon's -- blogging, writing, creating a brand. If that's not what you dream of doing, I'd find another book to read.

I bought this book based on the Dave Ramsey association, assuming that it would have something of real tangible value in it. I was mistaken. Don't get me wrong, there is some good advice in here, but not worth the cost of the book. Judging by the amount of people that responded with a positive rating, I am in the minority.

The biggest thing I took away from this book was something I knew before I read it. If you want to know what that is, buy the book. I will not disclose this out of respect for the author. Perhaps this is why I am disappointed with the content of the book. I was possibly expecting too much based the title. After reading the book, I found it is more of an autobiographical account of Mr. Acuff's journey to join the Dave Ramsey organization. The book does note some common sense practices in going about the self discovery process.

The book is full of common sense practices in dealing with the difficulties of fulltime employment while trying to make the switch to something more fulfilling. He is not saying anything new. There is no great revelation to be had by reading this book.

The author describes his journey through his various employers and documents his personal life-lessons. There is really not enough substance to completely fill up a book, so he writes a bunch of seemingly unrelated stories in an attempt to elaborate on his points and quotes from other people. The author constantly references his experiences on his past blogging work to the point where I wished he had done something else. He also continuously references and plugs other people's books. I was left with the impression that in order to completely understand the point the author was attempting to make, I couldn't get it by reading his book; I needed to go buy another book by another author. He also continually pays tribute to Dave Ramsey throughout the book, which is shows he knows which side his bread is buttered.

After I had read through half the book, I was waiting for the author to get to the point, and I found it getting harder and harder to continue reading. Soon, I was skimming over the pages and finding more of the same wordiness. As I did so, it appeared as if there was a minimum word count for the publisher, so a lot of fill stories were inserted. Another interesting point I found was that the author references the importance of selling this book as one of his personal development goals and the investment goals of the Dave Ramsey organization. The fact that I bought the book, their business practices seems to work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Honest, Inspiring Account Every Dreamer Should Read 10 mai 2011
Par bryan r allain - Publié sur
I received an advanced copy of this book and blew through it in a weekend. It was fantastic.

The reason? Jon delivers a ton of wisdom in a very compelling voice.

Why is his voice compelling? Because he's "been there, done that". He's taken the path from his day job to his dream job. He's made the tough decisions, fought through the mistakes, and lived to tell about it.

Why else is his voice compelling? Because he's hilarious. It's so much easier to digest the wisdom Jon brings when it's broken up with absurd pop culture references and great anecdotes from his own life.

Why do I keep talking in questions? Who knows.

But here's the bottom line: If you're looking for an honest account of what it's like to make the transition from your day job to your dream job, this book is for you. Jon won't sugarcoat the journey or convince you that it's worth making stupid decisions now that you'll pay for later. He stays grounded in reality while inspiring you to truly connect with the things you're passionate about, and he gives you hope and a plan for getting there yourself.

Can't recommend it enough.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A New Way to Dream...Review of the book Quitter 10 mai 2011
Par chuckbakerisright - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
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.
