內容簡介

《紐約時報》暢銷書作者喬恩‧阿考夫職涯新作
想成為卓越之人先從「開始」,但從中享受樂趣才是達成終極目標的要訣

根據研究,有92%的新年新願望從未真正達成。多年來,作者喬恩‧阿考夫認為無法實現目標的問題在於不夠努力,所以他開始早起、吃更多健康的超級食物,甚至聘請人生導師,但是這樣的努力卻一點作用也沒有。然而市面上開始出現30天就達成目標的線上課程,阿考夫從中發現有趣的事實:最有效的結果不是不斷強迫自己更努力,相反地,人們在沒有壓力及感到開心時也能實現自我目標。阻礙人們達成目標的最大障礙不是懶惰,而是完美主義,人們經常會以自身制定的隱形標準來衡量目標達成與否,如果你想變得更強壯、更聰明或更成功,比起選擇一個你討厭的方法,不如選擇一個更能享受其中的過程,你將有更多機會達成目標。如果你嘗試成為一個持之以恆的人,你有兩個選擇:你可以繼續強迫自己更努力,直到時間證明一切,或是放開一切享受更美好的生活。

Year after year, readers pulled me aside at events and said, “I’ve never had a problem starting. I’ve started a million things, but I never finish them. Why can’t I finish?


According to studies, 92 percent of New Year’s reso-lutions fail. You’ve practically got a better shot at getting into Juilliard to become a ballerina than you do at finishing your goals.
For years, I thought my problem was that I didn’t try hard enough. So I started getting up earlier. I drank enough energy drinks to kill a horse. I hired a life coach and ate more superfoods. Nothing worked, although I did develop a pretty nice eyelid tremor from all the caffeine. It was like my eye was waving at you, very, very quickly.

Then, while leading a thirty-day online course to help people work on their goals, I learned something surprising: The most effective exercises were not those that pushed people to work harder. The ones that got people to the finish line did just the opposite— they took the pressure off.

Why? Because the sneakiest obstacle to meeting your goals is not laziness, but perfectionism. We’re our own worst critics, and if it looks like we’re not going to do something right, we prefer not to do it at all. That’s why we’re most likely to quit on day two, “the day after perfect”—when our results almost always underper­form our aspirations.

The strategies in this book are counterintuitive and might feel like cheating. But they’re based on studies conducted by a university researcher with hundreds of participants. You might not guess that having more fun, eliminating your secret rules, and choosing something to bomb intentionally works. But the data says otherwise. People who have fun are 43 percent more successful! Imagine if your diet, guitar playing, or small business was 43 percent more suc­cessful just by following a few simple principles.

If you’re tired of being a chronic starter and want to become a consistent finisher, you have two options: You can continue to beat yourself up and try harder, since this time that will work. Or you can give yourself the gift of done.
