30 DAY CHALLENGE 

We recap the Morning Pages experience, which Lianne will continue for her 30 Day Challenge. Andrew will switch to Data Tracking, which ties in with the book of the month AND our next book.

BOOK OF THE MONTH 

Jon Acuff's book Finish: Give Yourself The Gift of Done (2017)! 

Jon Acuff is an author and motivational speaker and this book is all about tackling and overcoming perfectionism so you'll keep working on the stuff you WANT to be working on. In his book, with a dry sense of humor, Jon talks about a lot of great strategies in both action and mindset to overcome the things that keep you from finishing your work and projects.
