You’ve reached the end of this book and have received a great amount of information. You have a lot to think about, but nothing in your life will change unless you commit to some kind of action.

I don’t want this to be just another book you read and then forget. The information in this book is valuable only if you apply it, not merely consume it.

There are two assignments I want to leave you with:

1. Take One Small Step Every Day

Nothing will change overnight, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the things you could do after reading Overlap. To make your life easier, commit to just one small action every single day.

What was one concept or idea that stood out to you from this book? What was the biggest epiphany you got?

Maybe you need to invest in your family and get them on board. Maybe you need to develop your skills. Maybe you need to find a day job that covers all of your bills.

If you’re not happy with repeating the last six months of your life, something needs to change. What new action will you commit to doing? What old habit will you replace?

Here are some ideas:

  • Commit to going to bed earlier.
  • Commit to waking up early and writing.
  • Commit to getting a day job in a different industry than your passion that covers 100 percent of your bills.
  • Commit to getting six months of expenses saved in the bank.
  • Commit to investing time in your family members or spouse until they feel so appreciated they support whatever you want to do.
  • Commit to deliberate practice and honing your skills.
  • Commit to curating what you share and publishing only about one specific thing.

What commitment will you make? What do you want to change or improve? How is your life going to look different in six months?

Decide on the most important change you need to make. Pick one thing and commit to doing it. Just take one small action each day, and your life will improve.

2. Spread the Idea of Overlap

The world is a better place when people do what fulfills them and work in areas where they can create the most value. Unfortunately, most people feel stuck. They hear things like, “Quit your day job and do what you love!” This sounds nice, but it lacks practicality.

You know people who quit their job to pursue their passion only to end up broke and having to look for a job again. You know one person who feels stuck. You know one person who hates their job. You know one person who wants something more from life and longs to create financial freedom for themselves.

Maybe you thought of multiple people, but I want you to focus on the first person you thought of. Are you picturing this one person who came to mind?

I want you to tell them about Overlap.

Purchase a copy for them, or let them know it’s available as an ebook or audiobook.

If they can’t afford a copy, tell them to go to OverlapBook.com where they can read the book online for free.

My goal isn’t to sell more books or make money; it’s to help more people get unstuck.

I want fewer people to hate what they do. I want more people to do what fulfills them and work in areas where they can create the most value. There’s a better alternative to quitting your job, taking a leap, and hoping for the best: it’s called Overlap.

You found the solution in this book, but your friends, your family, and the people you love don’t know about it. They’re still stuck. They still don’t have a word to describe what they want to do! You now know that word is overlap. When you give someone the words to describe what they have never been able to articulate, you empower them. You open up the possibility for a conversation.

Together, we can help more people enjoy life. I’m committed to making it happen at all costs, and I hope you’ll join me in spreading the word about Overlap.

I want to sincerely thank you for taking the time to read this book. If the book has helped you in any way, I’d love to hear from you. Share your story at OverlapBook.com/contact.

I wish you the best of luck on your journey.
