Through his pithy and inspiring storytelling that has endeared him to millions, New York Times bestselling author Bob Goff reassures readers that they can harness today’s distractions, follow Jesus’ example, and find focus, purpose, and joy.
You probably know what it’s like to be driving down the road when you suddenly feel the vibration and hear the guh-guh-guh–guh-guh of the rumble strips–those groves in the pavement–warning you that you’ve drifted out of your lane. You didn’t mean to get distracted. You only took your eyes off the road for a moment, but you drifted off course. And that’s a lot like life, isn’t it?
In Undistracted, Bob Goff lovingly yanks us back in our lane and helps us get back on track so we can live our lives with real purpose and joy.
In his trademark storytelling style, Bob helps us:
- learn the destruction of distraction and the benefits of living a life of undistracted love and authentic connection;
- identify the distractions in our lives and either eliminate them or route around them; and
- catch a vision of our future, undistracted selves where we can experience true happiness and joy.
Bob’s inspiring and entertaining stories in Undistracted show us what it looks like to live a beautiful and purposeful life rather than drifting aimlessly from one season to the next. He encourages us to fix our eyes on Jesus and harness life’s distractions so we can find joy despite our circumstances.
Undistracted by Bob Goff is a testament to how easily distracted we are in our daily lives and how these distractions prevent us from fulfilling our purpose. In Undistracted, Bob pushes you to recognize and eliminate your distractions.
"A thousand such unnoticed distractions are getting in the way of your joy and preventing you from living with the kind of focused purpose that will produce the life you are longing for." — Undistracted pg 3
Through Bob’s stories, you get a glimpse into how taking chances, getting rejected, having courage, and relying on faith can lead you to the life you’ve always dreamed of. What I love about Undistracted is that Bob doesn’t sugarcoat the truth. He doesn’t downplay the trials and tribulations one may go through on their road to success. He acknowledges both the reality and necessity of failure. He helps you realize that becoming more tolerant of failure allows you to become more capable of success.
“The people who live wildly purposeful and joy-filled lives act first and ask questions later. They know that concocting a master plan can really be just a distraction in disguise.” —Undistracted pg 81
There’s a lot to love about Undistracted by Bob Goff. For me, it was a surge of motivation and reassurance at a time I needed it the most. As someone who’s currently dealing with a lot of uncertainties in life, Undistracted helped me regain my focus and restore my faith.
If you’re feeling uncertain about the direction of your life, I highly recommend reading Undistracted.
