That is the title of a book I just read by self admitted serial quitter Jon Acuff. He advocates four things that really resonate with me since I spend so much time with people who have a rabid dream gene. I also work with career professionals and business owners who are constantly looking for ways to be more involved in missions. 
 
Four big things from the book.
 
1.       Start slow, start small. You need the Nebraska years. I am not going to explain this to you. Buy the book and maybe Jon will send me a royalty.
2.       Don’t quit your day job to pursue your dream until you have pursued it along side your day job so that you could pay your bills. There are these things called Dons. Not going to spoon feed you here either. It’s worth the time and money to read this if you are a dreamer.
3.       Here is the part I like the best. None of his advice will work for you, no matter how noble your dream, without the magic ingredient; known as “hustle”.    The dream does not become reality unless you get up earlier, stay later, work harder and learn to discipline your life.
4.       Finally, be able to define “enough” so that you stop pursuing it and learn to enjoy it.
