9781501281327: Breaking Busy: How to Find Peace and Purpose in a World of Crazy

Have you ever felt like a fraud or failure as you struggle to find balance in life? Do you find yourself juggling everything in mediocrity and feeling like you’re succeeding at very little? In her no-nonsense way, Alli Worthington tackles the big questions about finding happiness and one’s God-given purpose.

Breaking Busy marries popular secular research from the fields of social and positive psychology with solid biblical principles, instilling listeners with the confidence that they, too, can move from crazy busy to confident calm. With refreshing candor, uproarious true stories, and a Christian worldview, Alli delivers truths that dismantle common happiness myths. Then she empowers listeners to get unstuck, to let go of the good to make way for the great, to know themselves and their Creator, and ultimately to find peace and purpose in this world of crazy.

Learn how to stop chasing what leaves you empty and start doing what you were created to do. Identify the common lies you believe and how to strip their power from your life. Recognize how what you say no to determines what you can say yes to. With relatable anecdotes, Alli models for listeners real-life guidance on boundaries, relationships, and self-care, humbly examining her own mistakes and walking them through how she learned from her missteps and found peace in a world of busyness.

If you long to find real connection in an age of over-connectedness, with both your loved ones and your Creator, Alli Worthington deftly balances intelligent humility and heartwarming humor to help you rediscover your path.

Review:

My friend Alli will give you a new perspective on this concept she calls breaking busy. She will make you laugh out loud, perhaps shed a tear, and challenge you to think long and hard about the impact busyness has on your everyday life - the choices you make, your interactions with the people closest to you, and your relationship with God. If you apply the principles Alli outlines in the book then you will not only feel less stressed, and more fulfilled, but you will also live a life of fruitfulness. (CHRISTINE CAINE Founder of The A21 Campaign and Propel Women. Author of Unashamed.) 

If you have breath in your lungs, you’re probably busy. (And maybe even out of breath!) It’s easy to get caught up in tasks and to-dos, but in the midst of the manic we lose the beauty of life in exchange for busyness. Stop running in circles and start living in the moments. With humor and humility, Alli not only shares her candid failures and follies but gives practical and useful tips on how to break patterns of busyness. Her experiences allow us to enter into her story and learn how to get off the hamster wheel and start living the life we always wanted to live! It’s time to Break Busy. (BIANCA JUAREZ OLTHOFF, teacher, speaker, and author of Play with Fire: Discovering a Fierce Faith, Unquenchable Passion, and a Life-Giving God)

I don’t know when or how busyness became a status symbol, but I am so glad that in Breaking Busy, Alli Worthington is calling us all back to a better way of living! (JON ACUFF, New York Times bestselling author of Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work, and Never Get Stuck)

Breaking Busy speaks into the life of every woman who strives to spend her time, energy, and talents on the most important priorities in her life. As a working-mother authority, Alli Worthington transparently guides her readers through her own life transitions and tough choices, sharing her insights in both a thoughtful and whimsical way. This book brilliantly combines storytelling with action planning for life-impacting change. Breaking Busy is a must-read for every busy woman searching for peace and purpose amidst the demands of a crazy life! (DEE ANN TURNER, Vice President, Corporate Talent, Chick-fil-A, Inc.; author of It’s My Pleasure: The Impact of Extraordinary Talent and a Compelling Culture)

Alli Worthington has learned the difference between simply having a full life and truly experiencing life to the full. She shares her secrets in this warm, funny, and wise book that will help all of us finally trade “busy” for God’s very best. (HOLLEY GERTH, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of You’re Already Amazing)

Breaking Busy is a great read for women who feel like they don’t have quite enough hours in the day to finish their to-do list --- in other words, most of us! Alli’s voice is authentic and witty, plus her content is uber-practical. Whether you’re a harried mom with french fries littering the floor boards of your minivan or a high-level executive with more meetings than your iCal can keep up with, this book will help you navigate the next season of your life with significantly less stress and a lot more genuinely relaxed smiles. (LISA HARPER, Bible teacher, adoptive mom, and author of Believing Jesus: Are You Willing to Risk Everything)

Alli Worthington strikes you as the kind of girl who can have and do it all. She’s remarkably successful, juggles a wild and crazy family, and yet manages to always show up looking smart and snappy. If I didn’t know her better I would be intimidated! But here is the truth: Alli is one of the most genuine, thoughtful, strong, and stable women I know. Her book Breaking Busy is an honest, insightful, and hilarious telling of her own journey to (as the subtitle says) “find peace and purpose in a world of crazy.” Read it and know you’re not alone and that you too can break busy. (JENNI CATRON, leadership coach and author of The 4 Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership)

No offense to anyone else, but I think Alli Worthington might have written this book just for me. I needed Breaking Busy! --- but I’m not alone. This book is practical, yes, but it’s also wise and warm, like a good friend who helps us all to find the real way forward into a life less busy and more fulfilling. (SARAH BESSEY, author of Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith)

The secret to a life of fulfillment is all about getting off the busy train. In Breaking Busy, Alli Worthington will show you just how to ban busy, live better, and laugh all the way home. (CLAIRE DIAZ-ORTIZ, author and Silicon Valley innovator)

Alli Worthington’s Breaking Busy is a breath of fresh air. Her honest storytelling and practical advice will resonate with any person who has uttered the words “I’m so busy!” (JESSICA N. TURNER, author of The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You)
