Look carefully

I’ve hugely enjoyed reading ‘The War of Art’ by Steven Pressfield. He talks about Resistance (yep, with a capital ‘R’) and how it impacts what we contribute.

His book is pretty pared down to begin with and while he offers different perspectives on almost the same thing across the pages, it’s that rounded view that builds to such a powerful and, for me, revelatory message. So, I can’t boil down his book for a post, but I’ll share this pearl of wisdom:

‘Keep your eye on the doughnut, not on the hole.’

Now, sink your teeth into your work.

Not busywork for others – your work.
