The War of Art | by Steven Pressfield

Wow. This book looks like it’s one I have to read. I fight this battle every single day. I suspect we all do. Steven Pressfield’s book The War of Art:

“What keeps so many of us from doing what we long to do? Why is there a naysayer within? How can we avoid the roadblocks of any creative endeavor—be it starting up a dream business venture, writing a novel, or painting a masterpiece?

“The War of Art identifies the enemy that every one of us must face, outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just how to achieve the greatest success.

“The War of Art emphasizes the resolve needed to recognize and overcome the obstacles of ambition and then effectively shows how to reach the highest level of creative discipline. Think of it as tough love . . . for yourself.”

    1. I want to know how to do that when the needs of those around me keep eating me up. I have enough trouble keeping myself on track, but once I add the variables of children, parents, husband, friends, and the mailman, time seems to evaporate. I have bought this book and I am hoping that it can help me give myself permission to set the limits that I need. (At least I know where the real problem lies. No blaming others here.)
