Do Hard Things — A Follow-Up

Alex and Brett Harris have written a follow-up to their phenomenal book Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations, which I endorsed in this manner:

“In a culture of low expectations, non-stop entertainment and short attention spans, teenagers Alex and Brett Harris provide a voice of reason and a stirring exhortation to productive action in the name of Christ. As a university professor, I am not unaware of the Gen Y propensity to demand more recognition for less effort and to associate self-esteem with mere being rather than for actual accomplishment. Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations is a clarion call to teenagers everywhere to put away childishness and the fruit of immaturity and channel the energy of youth, in small ways and big ways, into world-changing activity with eternal significance. I highly recommend it.”

Their new book, entitled Start Here: Doing Hard Things Right Where You Are, is sure to be similarly helpful. Here’s the publisher’s description:

You want to do hard things.
But you don’t know where to start.
You are changing the world around you.
But you are tired and burned out.
You feel called to do the extraordinary for God.
But you feel stuck in the ordinary.
Do Hard Things inspired thousands of young people around the world to make the most of the teen years. Now Alex and Brett Harris are back and ready to tackle the questions that Do Hard Things inspired: How do I get started? What do I do when I get discouraged? What’s the best way to inspire others? Filled with stories and insights from Alex, Brett, and other real-life rebelutionaries, Start Here is a powerful and practical guide to doing hard things, right where you are.
Are you ready to take the next step and blast past mediocrity for the glory of God?

    Dr. Alex Chediak introduced me to the first book and as a result our freshman engineering students now read it! It had significant impact and I cannot wait to see how the sequel will be used by God as well. Thanks for alerting me!
