Steven Pressfield and Getting Shit Done

     Getting shit done, seems to be a common issue with people but especially creative types. I know I've struggled with it, oh boy have I. My big issue is seeing thing through I never have any shortage of ideas but I get stuck in the mud of creation. My time is more limited now than it ever has been, so that really has worked to motivate me to push on through to the other side. Recently heard someone say "That ideas aren't worth much it's the execution that matters", which really resonates with me.

     Steven Pressfield's book the War of Art is an artist's manifesto. Steven himself is a writer but was not at all successful until he was 52 when The Legend of Beggar Vance. This book talks about every obstacle to creation you could imagine and names the beast resistance. Either way it really gave me swift kick in the ass to get to work and not rationalize all my procrastination.
