DO THE WORK by Steven Pressfield
We need to withstand the lurking, surging ocean of resistance which leads to procrastination if we want to complete a project and meet deadlines!
“A work-in-progress generates its own energy field. You the artist or entrepreneur, are pouring love into the work: you are suffusing it with passion and intention and hope. This is serious juju. The universe responds to this. It has no choice. Resistance aims to swamp you. Its target is the epicentre of our being, our genius, our soul, the unique and priceless gift we were put on this earth to give and that no one else has but us. Resistance means business.”
Have you got a project on the bubble? A new blog page, a non-fiction best seller, or a novel that needs finishing? Prepare to withstand the overwhelming force whose secret name is RESISTANCE.
Steven Pressfield is an ex-marine and best-selling author sharing warrior tactics in his concise study on how to combat resistance and DO THE WORK. Reading his book for the second time in a waiting room while having two new front tyres fitted I had to laugh as I twigged the symbolism. New tyres = better traction to do the work! Pressfield takes us from the conception of an idea, through the belly of the beast, and on to a finalised, shipped product. He equips us with tools to outsmart that hulking, skulking ocean of RESISTANCE which is desperate to prevent us “from becoming our best selves and from achieving our higher goals.”
I love this book. It’s short, funny, perceptive and delivers a real punch. With Pressfield at my side, I am planning to finish & ship in 2021. If you want to conquer resistance and put passion in your project, don’t miss DO THE WORK.
