Leader’s Edge (Leadership)

Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done

Jon Acuff

Portfolio / Penguin, 2017, 208 pages
ISBN: 978-1591847625


This is an easy to read challenge on how to finish the projects and tasks you start. Acuff ties an inability to finish with perfectionism. By elevating our expectations about what we are seeking to accomplish, he suggests that we actually defeat ourselves. Much of the book unpacks how perfectionism exhibits itself and keeps us from being finishers. The book is written in a light, humorous style and is fun to read
