I'm honored to welcome Matt Perman to the show to talk about his brand new book How to Get Unstuck, which I believe will become the new gold standard for how to live a life marked by God-honoring productivity.
About the Book: Most of us are trying to make a difference where we are, yet feel overwhelmed, overloaded, and far too busy. Some even have great, world-changing ideas -- but get stuck trying to make them happen. How do you get "unstuck" from these things to make a real difference -- without resorting to complex systems that take more time to keep up than they actually save? How to Get Unstuck answers this question by introducing readers to ten core principles that are at the heart of becoming an effective person for the glory of God. These principles are flexible enough for people to adapt and apply them to their own life and context. This book is more than just good ideas that you read and never apply. How to Get Unstuck walks you step-by-step through the core principles that free you to be more effective in everything you do. Each chapter also has an "Unstuck Clinic" that allows you to reflect and apply the principles more fully to yourself. How can we learn the discipline of personal effectiveness? Starting with the Scriptures and drawing on the best contemporary research, How to Get Unstuck shows you how to live an integrated life. True effectiveness is accomplishing God's purposes, in God's way, and for God's glory, and this book will show you how.
