Nike was right, we should “just do it!” Resistance is a huge roadblock in the path of our progress. It prevents us from bringing ideas to life or sometimes just plain having fun. Steven Pressfield knows this and that’s what his recently released book, Do the Work, is all about. The book begins with this, “On the field of the Self stand a knight and a dragon. You are the knight. Resistance is the dragon.”
I downloaded a Kindle version of the book and read it fast, just as Seth Godin suggested in the Forward (Godin also talks on his blog about how ‘shipping,’ delivering work on a deadline, is key to success). Then I purchased it on iTunes and listened to SP read his own words; even better.
Go here to read more from Pressfield about staying stupid, trusting the soup, and starting before you’re ready.
