The In-Between: Embracing the Tension Between Now and the Next Big Thing by Jeff Goins

"Most growth happens this way: slowly, over time...When it comes to waiting, we have a choice. We can try to bypass the delays to get immediate gratification. Or we can embrace the 'long game' of life and invest those days, months, and years in the slow but intentional growth that leads to lasting change." --Jeff Goins

This book is all about waiting and the times in between those big moments of life which is where real life actually happens if we can pay attention. Goins writes about slowing down and learning to live and enjoy life as it unfolds right now.

This was mostly a memoir with reflections on what Goins has learned. I thought it was an okay book with a good message. Only okay in that the book seemed to lose some cohesion as it went on. But overall, an okay read.
