“If you’re going to risk and maybe fail, fail at something that matters. Fail gloriously so that even in failure, lives change.”
Jon Acuff

“You don't need to go back in time to be awesome; you just have to start right now. Regretting that you didn't start earlier is a great distraction from moving on your dream today, and the reality is that today is earlier than tomorrow.”
Jon Acuff, Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work that Matters

“90 percent perfect and shared with the world always changes more lives than 100 percent perfect and stuck in your head.”
Jon Acuff, Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job and Your Dream Job
