Get Off Your “But” (Hoboken, NJ: Jossey-Bass, 2009)

This is one of the best books I have read this year. It is written by a man who overcame enormous physical disabilities to succeed. He really does take all the excuses away. Better yet, he offers practical advice that can literally change your life. This is one of those rare books that I was sad to see come to an end. It is the perfect book to read in preparation for the year ahead.

  1. Sounds interesting, I’ll look into it. 

    I’m definitely not an expert in this area, but it seems like an unusual book to be published by Jossey-Bass.

  2. The title of this book made me laugh out loud.  I’m going to try to get a copy.

    Reminds me of a sermon that a friend of mine preached about different kinds of Christians.  The last point was based on Luke 9:61 “And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.”  The last type of Christian he described was “but-first” Christians.  He couldn’t understand why everyone was laughing during his message.  Afterwards, as he was standing at the door shaking hands, one of his deacons backed towards him, wiggling his rear end.

  3. I love Sean’s work! Sean is a friend and colleague and he is absolutely one of the most inspiring people I have ever met. If you are reading this, and you don’t have Sean’s book, don’t walk, run and get it!
