"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."-- Steven PressfieldCould you be getting in your way of producing great work? Have you started a project but never finished? Would you like to do work that matters, but don't know where to start?The answer is Do the Work, a manifesto by bestselling author Steven Pressfield, that will show you that it's not about better ideas, it's about actually doing the work. Do the Work is a weapon against Resistance - a tool that will help you take action and successfully ship projects out the door.Picking up where The War of Art and Turning Pro left off, Do The Work takes the reader from the start to the finish of any long-form project-novel, screenplay, album, software piece, you name it.Do The Work identifies the predictable Resistance Points along the way and walks you through each of them. No, you are not crazy. No, you are not alone. No, you are not the first person to "hit the wall" in Act Two.Do The Work charts the territory. It's the stage-by-stage road map for taking your project from Page One to THE END.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's stopping you from doing the best work of your life? The enemy. The resistance. It's in all of us. It will kill us if you will let it. The way that Steven describes the enemy is meant to motivate us. To inspire us. To spur us to action. And after reading this book, I think Steven will provide the impetus for you to get going. Take action. Start something. Have you ever tried to start something but never finished? Or are you a serial starter - you see the next big thing and start that instead, ever starting but never finishing any single project. This book will provide you with the strategies and tactics to overcome the finishing barrier.
