“Do the Work” is an excellent book by Steven Pressfield about what you can do for doing your work better! It focus on YOU and show you how to remove the obstacle may block your progress towards your goals.
Here the author of the “Gates of Fire: An Epic Novel of the Battle of Thermopylae“ and of the excellent “The Warrior Ethos” deals with another kind of battle. Your inner battle for doing what it matters most to you!
As Pressfield writes:
There is an enemy. There is an intelligent, active, malign force working against us. Step one is to recognize this. This recognition alone is enormously powerful. It saved my life, and it will save yours.
It is a manifesto and, at the same time, a war manual against the Resistance (Pressfield’s term) we all face daily, when we try to achieve something of value, written by the pen of a magnificent storyteller, as Steven Pressfield undoubtedly is!
Even though the book mainly focuses on the creative type of works (as writing, drawing, painting, etc.) it is a valuable tool for everyone who wants to do better his/her work!
