How to Get Unstuck introduces readers to the ten core principles at the heart of becoming an effective person whose life genuinely flourishes and impacts others positively.

Bad news first: we all get stuck. It's a fact of life. But the good news is that it is possible to get unstuck and overcome the obstacles to doing great work and getting the right things done. The question becomes: How do you get "unstuck" in your productivity in both work and life—and how to do it in a spiritually healthy way?

Matt Perman—author of What's Best Next and director of career development at The King's College, NYC—has spent his career helping people learn how to do work in a gospel-centered and effective way, combining theological substance with practical self-management. In How to Get Unstuck, he will walk you step-by-step through the core principles that free you to be more effective in everything you do by helping you:

  • Understand how you get stuck and what your obstacles are.
  • Prepare to get unstuck by grappling with who you are and how you see yourself.
  • Develop a practice of personal management.
  • Overcome obstacles and adapt to unforeseen problems.

Drawing on the wisdom of the Bible and on the best of today's research, How to Get Unstuck shows believers and non-believers alike how to live productive, integrated lives and develops a poignant portrayal of true effectiveness.

*Included is a detailed plan for getting started using the principles and applying them to real life situations.
