UNDISTRACTED: Capture Your Purpose and Rediscover Your Joy by Bob Goff

“The average person lives about 27,375 days. Let’s not spend a ridiculous number of them on distractions that steal our joy.”

That’s excellent advice — but easier said than done, right?

Bob’s books are always full of inspiration and wisdom. He uses relatable stories from his long life to illustrate his suggestions for how to live a life of purpose and joy. He shares ways of identifying distractions like regrets, resentments, hurts and misunderstandings. He talks about “building healthy boundaries to protect your joy and purpose while letting a few people in…”

Thanks to Nelson Books and TLC Book Tours for the gifted book (publisher synopsis below).

Did you already do the math? I’ve already lived 17,724 days! Time to pick up the pace, Jaymi!

About UNDISTRACTED: Capture Your Purpose and Rediscover Your Joy

Publisher: Thomas Nelson (March 1, 2022)

Hardcover: 256 pages

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.
