We Debrief Our Conversation with Jon Acuff

What’s Your Emergency

This week your hosts continue a conversation started with New York Times Bestselling Author, and tall guy, Jon Acuff about his new book Soundtracks. They only had 30 minutes of Jon's time and didn't even crack the surface of all the questions, observations and comments they had, so they hung up with him and hit record again to discuss it. This week the guys go into more detail about how the book impacted them and how approachable it is for the first responder family. While many books geared towards self help are clearly more about making it in the corporate world, Jon's Soundtracks transcends job title and gives everyone a chance to improve their inner dialogue.

New York Times Bestselling Author Jon Acuff and Soundtracks that can shape your future

What’s Your Emergency

This week your hosts welcome New York Times Bestselling Author, and tall guy, Jon Acuff to talk about his new book Soundtracks. As you are aware, many first responders struggle with an inner monologue that drives us down. "I'm not good enough. I'll never get promoted. I can't find a better job." Researcher Mike Peasley PhD and Jon worked for years in testing a crazy, yet simple theory: What if we changed that soundtrack into something more positive, then acted on it? What if we were able to focus on the positive and have that repeat, rather than constantly hearing that negative nagging in the background? Jon gives some solid, actionable advice to First Responders stuck in that cynical churn of day-in, day-out living. You'll learn: If simply changing the music we listen to can have a positive change What is a turndown and how it can impact a bad day in the field How Jon can be so confident that changing your soundtrack will have a positive effect on your life, personally and professionally Why Jon isn't wearing his Yanni - Live at the Acropolis t-shirt (To skip direct to the interview, jump to the 06:55 minute mark.)

495: Jon Acuff | The Surprising Solution to Overthinking

The Jordan Harbinger Show

Jon Acuff (@jonacuff) is an Inc. Magazine Top 100 Leadership speaker, host of the All It Takes Is a Goal podcast, and author of multiple bestsellers. His latest book is Soundtracks: The Surprising Solution to Overthinking. What We Discuss with Jon Acuff: Jon defines a soundtrack as those repetitive thoughts that play automatically in your head that shape more of your choices than you know -- and this is why you need to curate your soundtrack. Three questions to ask yourself if you want to identify a broken soundtrack that derails your ambitions -- and change it into one that goads you into action. How you can flip a worry-inducing soundtrack into one that instills confidence. Being prepared always leads to an action; overthinking always leads to more overthinking. Something better to tell yourself than "Fake it 'til you make it" from the son of the guy who coined that phrase. And much more...
