The best Book Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job and Your Dream Job Surprisingly, this book, called Quitter, is not about quitting. It is actually about making the most of where you are at. Often, when going after a dream job, our day job can be good security for us while we prepare to take a big step towards our goals and passions. One of the best points that Acuff makes in this book comes in the chapter, "Removing the 'I'm' From Your 'But.'" An I'm/But example is, "I'm an accountant, but I wanted to be a novelist." It seems like there are a lot of people these days that, when describing what they do for a living, feel like they need to clarify what they actually wished they were doing for a job. I, myself, have fallen into this trap as well, and it is bad to do because we are ignoring the good that can come from where we are at. Looking back at past jobs, I can see how God had me there for reason, preparing me for what was coming up next. Chapter 7 was about hustling to make your dreams come true, and I particularly appreciated Acuff's assessment of the time we have available to us. We often complain that we don't have enough time to accomplish our dreams, however we have no problem spending hours a week watching TV. By differentiating between things we love to do and things we like to do, Acuff asserts that we can start to close the gap between our day job and our dream job by eliminating things that we simply like. Even if they are not bad things in nature, it may be bad for our dreams to give them a place in our lives.
