Soundtracks: The Surprising Solution to Overthinking

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jon Acuff

Narrated By: Jon Acuff

Date: April 2021

Duration: 5 hours 14 minutes


Overthinking isn't a personality trait. It's the sneakiest form of fear. It steals time, creativity, and goals. It's the most expensive, least productive thing companies invest in without even knowing it. And it's an epidemic. In Soundtracks, New York Times bestselling author Jon Acuff offers a proven plan to change overthinking from a super problem into a superpower. If you want to tap into the surprising power of overthinking and give your dreams more time and creativity, learn how to DJ the soundtracks that define you. If you can worry, you can wonder. If you can doubt, you can dominate. If you can spin, you can soar.

    After the first listen, I know Soundtracks is a book I want to read/listen to again so I can take notes and let all the information soak in. In this book, Jon Acuff combines truth and helpful recommendations with stories, wit, and humor in a way that makes it both impactful and fun.

    This was a great read. Jon does a great job of personalizing his book for the audio listeners. Also, if you are overthinking on whether or not you should buy/read this book, then this is certainly the book for you. I look forward to building off of the things I learned in this book.

    I've always appreciated how Jon dovetails humor with his practical advice and real-world insight. This book was the same excellent combination. I laughed out loud at multiple points and I also now have useful tools I can use in my own life to dial down my overthinking. I highly recommend all of Jon's work and this book is no different. Thanks Jon!

    Given the title, this book is a MUST listen. Rare combo of inspiring AND entertaining. The Lord has given you an amazing gift, J Acuff! I listened to your interview with Annie F Downs on TSF and as soon as I got to work I pre-purchased TWO copies - one for me and one for my boss. Most impulsive move for me. And you delivered!

    You know it’s a good book when you’re sad that it’s over.

  • Marilyn D.

    This is an awesome book about changing your overthinking "Soundtracks" into a SUPERpower. It is easy to read but is full of helpful practical ways to change your not so kind thoughts into helpful thoughts you can play on REPEAT. As I read the book, I caught myself smiling and laughing. I highly recommend it.

  • Scott M.

    Jon knocked it out of the park with this one. The dollar coin/50-cent piece story is a great way to end. This is a very relatable book. I enjoyed the audio book because of how Jon delivers the book. I’ll listen to it again. Highly recommended.

  • Mike M.

    As a habitual offender suffering from analysis paralysis Jon gives some tremendous insight on how to quiet those soundtracks and switch them into motivating hits! The bonus of having him read and with some extra tips makes it even better!

    One of the best books I have ever read/listened to. Hilarious and helpful, inspiring and challenging, worth every penny and every minute. (If you read no further, just go buy the book.) Many who try to help with this topic either tell you to "just stop" (as if we could and just refuse??) or make you feel like a horrible person for this "stupid, self-destructive thing you do" (which really just sends you into further downward spirals of overthinking). Jon Acuff isn't like that. He is humble in sharing his own overthinking patterns and it gives you the freedom to admit that overthinking really is stealing time and leaving you with stress instead. Then he shares how to replace broken soundtracks with new ones. You can see the difference is made in his life just in the way that he shares his stories and it gives you hope that you too can listen to the new soundtracks. Just listening to Jon read this book has already helped me to not obsess in the 24 hours between a terrifyingly vague "do have a few minutes to chat?" text and the time the person called. (And of course it was a totally great conversation instead of an awful one.) I haven't even done the hard work of replacing and repeating new soundtracks yet! (Just think how superpowered I will be then.) On the outside, I am an extrovert, typically happy and helpful. I appear confident and decisive. But I know that on the inside, I am a very uncomfortable, clenched in the fetal position overthinker who worries about how every thing I do could negatively affect someone else and how that is more important than how it actually affects me. (I do know how messed up that is, but that's where I have been stuck for a very, very long time.) So instead of the broken soundtrack, "I said the wrong thing and everyone is secretly mad at me" which makes me feel like I need to obsessively go fix everything, I am trying to replace it with, "I didn't hurt anyone on purpose. They are adults. If they are mad at me, they will tell me." (Just one example of how I'm trying to apply this book.) I am not completely cured of my overthinking yet, but Jon and his straightforward book have helped me take a flying leap in the right direction. Highly recommend to all.

    I’ve enjoyed all of Jon’s books and this is his best yet. I watched his Overcoming Overthinking course and am listening to his All It Takes is a Goal podcast. I’ve put the principles to use and my outlook and motivation has greatly improved.
