Ep. 82 | The Art and Science Of Finishing with Jon Acuff

The Art and Science Of Finishing with Jon Acuff

The latest Academy episode features a rockstar writer, speaker, entrepreneur and all around finisher — Jon Acuff. Jon is the New York Times Bestselling author of six books including his most recent Wall Street Journal #1 Bestseller, Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done.

Let’s face it: as a society, we have issues getting things done. Anyone can get started and excited for a new goal, make a big declaration — yet a few weeks later, have nothing to show for it.

And the truth is — you and I lose a little self-trust on our own belief of following through every single time this happens.

This is why I love Jon’s book and his realistic, research-driven work around completing goals in life. Trust me, in my programs I urge and compel people to dream big — but also to keep things realistic and build a foundation for completion.

This is a must-listen for any aspiring entrepreneur, leader, manager or someone who wants to crush their latest hobby or interest!
