Many people with great, world-changing ideas aren't able to make them happen. Most people are trying to make a difference where they are, yet they feel overwhelmed, overloaded, and far too busy. How do you get "unstuck"-without resorting to complex systems that take more time to keep up than they actually save?

Unstuck answers this question by introducing readers to eight core principles that are at the heart of becoming an effective person for the glory of God. These principles are flexible enough for people to adapt and apply them to their own life and context. Also included is a plan for getting started in using these principles and applying them to real life.

This book is more than just good ideas that you read and never apply. Unstuck walks you step-by-step through the core principles that free you to be more effective in everything you do. How can we learn the discipline of personal effectiveness? Starting with the Scriptures and drawing on the best research Unstuck shows Christians how to live integrated lives. True effectiveness is doing something in God's way and for God's glory, and this book will show you how.

Doing things for God's Glory!
5 stars By Andrew, May 01 2018
Productivity matters because it helps us focus on what is important in life - to do all the good we can with the life, skills, talents and opportunities God gives us.

But sometimes we get stuck. You know the feeling as well as I do.

As Matt Perman says, "Obstacles to our productivity are everywhere. We often feel frustrated, like we are floundering. We feel overrun with distractions, overloaded with input, stretched by multiple competing demands, exasperated by unrealistic expectations, thrown off track by interruptions, annoyed by incomprehensible snags in the systems we use, trapped by other people's bad productivity, and more and more. In a nutshell, many of us feel like we are not getting done what really matters to us and what we are truly capable of doing."

That's where "How to Get Unstuck", enters the picture, with the goal that we might get "unstuck from things that don't matter" so we "can accomplish the things that really do.

I've read a number of productivity books before, including Matt Perman's excellent "Gospel Driven Productivity", but this is one of the best there is - and an ideal companion to the earlier book. Of all the books I've read, this is the one most likely to translate into practical, God-glorifying change in my life (and in yours!). Highly recommended.
