Discussion & Book Signing
Best-selling author Jon Acuff explains that people don't fail because they're not trying hard enoughthey fail because of perfectionism. In his new book, Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done, Acuff draws upon research of nearly 900 participants in Acuff's goal-reaching video course. What he found was that the exercises in the program that helped people the most dramatically were the ones that did away with crippling perfectionism. Whether they were trying to lose a pant size, write more content on a blog, or get a raise, the results were the same: the less that people aimed for perfect, the more productive they became.
