I didn't read the Harris brothers first book Do Hard Things. It was one of those that I checked out from the library with the intention of reading it, but somehow my roommate read it and I didn't. (Certainly wasn't the first time that happened.) When I got the chance, though, to review their second book Start Here, I jumped at it. I had a feeling it would be a book I wish I'd read as a teenager, and I was right. While I don't feel I entirely wasted my teenage years, I wish I'd be challenged more to intentionally do hard things.
I especially appreciated the fact that hard things aren't limited to "big" or "showy." It's just as glorifying to God to talk to a new person at church as it is to start an organization to build wells in Africa; I thought the book did a good job of including the spectrum of "big" and "small" actions.
