Read This! Do the Work

May 6, 2013

Do the WorkI love Steven Pressfield’s honest, in-your-face, writing style. His book, DO THE WORK, delivers on this style. Whether you’re an aspiring artist, writer, or entrepreneur, this book can help you. Pressfield addresses the demon of resistance that lurks in all of us. Its sole purpose is to halt our creativity, sabotage our internal genius, and rob us of or passion. Our strategy for overcoming resistance is to engage its nemesis—assistance. I particularly enjoyed this quote on page thirteen: “A child has no trouble in believing the unbelievable, nor does the genius or the madman. It’s only you and I, with our big brains and our tiny hearts, who doubt and over think and hesitate.” It’s time to get out of your way. It’s time to produce great work. It’s time to finish what you’ve already started. Let Pressfield’s manifesto help you see that you don’t need better ideas to be smarter, stronger, or more beautiful. It’s about doing the work.

Read. Enjoy.
