Jon Acuff

PAPERBACK

2017/01/03

From the New York Times-bestselling author of Quitter and Start comes the definitive guide to getting your dream job.

When you don't like your job, Sunday isn't really a weekend day. It's just pre-Monday. But what if you could call a Do Over and actually look forward to Monday?

Starting on the first day you got paid to scoop ice cream or restock shelves, you’ve had the chance to develop the four elements all great careers have in common: relationships, skills, character, and hustle. You already have each of those, to one degree or another.

Now it’s time to amplify them and apply them in a new way, so you can call a Do Over on your career, at any age. You’ll need a Do Over because you’ll eventually face at least one of these major transitions:

   •  You’ll hit a Career Ceiling and get stuck, requiring sharp skills to free yourself. 
   •  You’ll experience a Career Bump and unexpectedly lose your job, requiring strong relationships to survive. 
   •  You’ll make a Career Jump to a new role, requiring solid character to push through uncertainty and chaos. 
   •  You’ll get a surprise Career Opportunity, requiring dedicated hustle to take advantage of it. 

Jon Acuff’s unique approach will give you the resources to reinvent your work, get unstuck, and get the job you’ve always wanted!

Editorial Reviews

“You have the power to give yourself a fresh start. Jon Acuff shows you how.”

– SOPHIA AMORUSO, author of #GIRLBOSS

“As Abraham Lincoln once said, being forced into work you don’t love is like paying to upgrade your cell phone to the latest model: no one should have to do that! Fortunately, you don’t need to do at least one of these things anymore. Take it from me and from Honest Abe: Jon’s book can get you unstuck."

– CHRIS GUILLEBEAU, author of The Happiness of Pursuit and The $100 Startup

“Do Over is an energetic, user-friendly guide to navigating the jumps, bumps, and ceilings that we all face in our careers.”

– ADAM GRANT, author of Give and Take
