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

Most people spend their lives impatiently waiting for the next big thing to happen. But what if those moments between big events were actually hugely influential on our identities and lives? What if instead of focusing on those big events, we slow down and savor those in-between moments? The In-Between (2013) comprises a collection of Jeff Goins’ life-changing experiences that happened in the in-between, which he would like to share with readers.

  • Anyone who often finds themselves waiting for “the next big thing”
  • Anyone who feels they are not grateful enough for the things they have
  • Anyone who feels they do not appreciate the people around them enough

Jeff Goins is a musician, author and blogger who has written for over 100 magazines, publications and blogs.

Instead of trying to control what happens to you, focus on the people you are with.

Another important life experience for Jeff occurred with his rock band, when they spent almost a year touring North America and Taiwan.

Jeff had high expectations for the tour, dreaming of adventure and rock stardom. Often, however, the reality of the tour was less glamorous and more gruelling: some nights would involve 12-hour van rides to play for just 30 minutes in front of a crowd of as few as 20 people.

Late one night, the band rolled into a small town in Montana, starving after the long drive. They expected at least a few restaurants to be open, but frustratingly it turned out that this was not the case in this small rural town.

They were staying overnight at a local pastor’s house, and he, seeing their hunger, took them to his church and showed them a pantry full of donated food. The band protested of course, but the pastor insisted on making a meal out of the food for them, because at that moment they were exactly the “needy” the food was meant for.

They ended up having a very simple but delicious meal together at the pastor’s house. Their frustration and hunger had turned into a great evening where they enjoyed each other’s company.

It was then that Jeff realized that by focusing on his expectations for the tour, expecting the life of a rock star, he was missing the fact that the band was growing very close to one another. They were forming a close community, almost like family.

The year was not so much about the experience of touring in a band, but more about the people Jeff was with and how they changed him. The same is true for most experiences in life.
