This is an amazing little book by Steven Pressfield. It expounds on the subject of what he calls ‘resistance’, which is the phenomenon all creative people get before they start the act of creating. Simply the act of personifying ‘resistance’ as a thing or entity that should be fought and repelled is a great way to visualize your own shortcomings when it comes to creative work. We all need to adapt what he calls a mentality of a ‘pro’ who focuses on the daily practice to break through resistance through the use of rituals and routines.
Definitely worth a read for anyone in any form of creative pursuit. Break through that resistance!
