How do you prepare for change before you feel like you’re drowning in it?
Most of the time, we’re thrown into change like a cat into the bathtub. We didn’t ask for it and now we’re just struggling to stay afloat. (and not too happy about the whole process either).
How do you step into your next “do-over,” whether it be at college graduation, a new job, or a relationship, and thrive in transition instead of being crushed by it?
I asked these questions to the New York Times bestselling author Jon Acuff, who just released his newest book Do Over. Jon shares amazing secrets to thriving through change, even as the rules to being successful constantly change themselves.
Key Takeaways/Highlights in my Interview with Jon Acuff:
– Why transitions are so hard and why we don’t honestly talk about it
– What you can say back to that older, official adult who is telling you to “just figure it out...”
– “70% of Americans are dissatisfied with work, yet 100% of them aren’t meant to be entrepreneurs…”
– Why it’s a good thing you’re not working your dream job right now.
– How you prepare for change by building a “Career Savings Account” — Relationships + Skills + Character x Hustle
– Two questions you need to ask before you quit your job
– What Jon means when he writes in Do-Over that “The distance between comfortable and comatose is surprisingly short.”
– An amazing tip to finding and impressing a mentor
– What 25 year old Jon wishes he would’ve done differently…
– And my total joke fail when I thought “crusted butt” would be funny (and it was not…)
