A colleague of mine recently suggested reading “Do The Work” by Steven Pressfield. While I don’t think I’m that much of a procrastinator, the truth is that we can all use a dose of reality every now and again and that’s what this book is. I love that Pressfield is very candid about his challenges along the way and he captures the essence of the issue—Resistance. “Do The Work” helps you to understand who your allies are and helps you to understand how to rally and use them in your creativity. I like that it’s got some quality messaging, regardless of the task at hand, and you can read it one sitting—an hour and half at the very most.
I highly recommend this book to help you get motivated to move forward. And particularly if you’re a writer, this is a great one if you’re having trouble moving along your path.
