This month on TRIBECast we interview New York Times Best Selling Author, Jon Acuff.
Our interview with Jon covers the overarching ideas highlighted in his latest book ‘Do Over’ which include not only Prioritizing, Grit, and a Career Savings Account™, but the path that led him to those topics.
‘It took me sixteen years to write this book.
That breaks down to a brisk twelve words per day. But it wasn’t the writing that took so long. . . . It was the working.
I had to work at big companies and small companies. I had to get hired and fired several times. I had to find my dream job, then walk away from it. But after all that, I can now say the following with absolute certainty:
You already have everything you need for an amazing career. In fact, you’ve had it since day one.
“Brimming over with sound, practical advice, this book will benefit individuals looking to take charge of their careers at any stage.” ~ Publishers Weekly
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, creating a Career Savings Account™. This unique approach will give you the power to call a Do Over—whether you’re twenty-two, forty-two, or sixty-two. You’ll have the resources to reinvent your work and get unstuck. You’ll even rescue your Mondays as you discover how to work toward the job you’ve always wanted! Just as a bank account protects you during a financial crunch, a Career Savings Account™ protects you during a career crunch.’
