Are You Ready for a Do Over? Time to Stop Day Dreaming and Start Doing! 
My monthly interview for #MyBookClub  with special guest +Jon Acuff 

Day dreaming can be a beautiful thing and it’s a big boost to creativity but day dreaming without ever implementing things because of fear and self-doubt can lead to unhappiness and stress.

I love John Lennon’s quote, “Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one.” John was a dreamer but he was also a doer as he wrote beautiful lyrics that inspired millions of people to not only have the dream but to act on it as well.

In his latest book, Do Over, Jon breaks down the steps to start kicking butt and gives you a plan (using notecards and baby steps) to get past fear and move onto the grit. “The next time you’re about to make a difficult decision and you feel like throwing up, don’t beat yourself up.” Permission to stop day dreaming and get started granted!

What would you do if you stopped being afraid? Stop thinking and start your do over.

4 tips for creating workspaces that reflect your brand
Working from home - as most bloggers do - can be a challenging task at best. Then, mix in an unorganized and cluttered office and you have yourself a little cave of stress. Nobody wants that. Ideally your office should reflect the same zeal and feel that your brand represents. When your environment is clean, organized, and stylish, your work will follow suit. These five bloggers are doing it right when it comes to organizing with sty...

Going LIVE in about 20 minutes with @JonAcuff #MyBookClub  
NYT best-selling author of six books including Do Over which we're going to talk about today.

#MyBookClub   #interview   #books  
My Book Club Interview of Jon Acuff, author of DO OVER: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work, and Never Get Stuck
On Amazon:

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!

What people are saying about Do Over:
“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 funny, insightful, and well-written. Three reasons I resent Jon Acuff.”
— JIM GAFFIGAN, comedian and author of Food: A Love Story

Join host Peg Fitzpatrick with Jon Acuff for a lively half hour interview asking all the things that you'd want to know! #MyBookClub  
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Peg Fitzpatrick. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Do you want to work smarter and faster? Of course, we all do!

It gets harder and harder to unplug and focus on what really matters without responding to each ding on our smart phone.

Great tips in this article from Lifehack to maximize your time and be more efficient.

One tip: Turn it off
"Power down those phones, turn off notifications. Set up an autoresponder if you need to, but disconnect in order to avoid distractions. You will get more done, if you focus only at the task at hand and answer to all missed calls and notifications once you’re done."

What's your best "get it done" tip?
