Getting to Awesome: Reading “Start” by Jon Acuff – Chapters 1 & 2

So over the weekend, I began reading “Start” by Jon Acuff. The book is about how to move from average to awesome as the book’s cover so nicely displays; its about realistically working towards your dream(s).

Punch Fear in the Face!

The author of the book is one of my favorite people to follow on “Christian Twitter;” He is also the author of the blog and book, “Stuff Christians Like.” And it was through the power of social media, basically smart posting, that I got interested in buying and reading this book (after moving my books when I started Graduate School, I vowed to limit the amount of books I brought because those books were soooo hard to move!!).

His posts really did get me to buy the book.

So far I am enjoying the book. Chapters 1 & 2 mainly focus on the background of getting to the writing of the book as well as how the book will function. I really enjoyed the ending of chapter 2 where Acuff shares how the preceding chapters will end (I won’t spoil it for you by placing that quote here…). The book has complex ideas in simple language. The short chapters, don’t know if they will get longer, work well with my busy schedule. This book is a nice read so far because…well…there are a few things I need to just start. Acuff also writes like me, conversationally — like he’s talking to me face-to-face.

Part of my start is connected to my blogging, I want to blog more with more original content. So, I thought that this would be a great opportunity to well…start (gosh that word is getting punny, lol). So similar to what I did while reading “The Purpose Driven Life,” I am going to blog my way through “Start.”
