Nothing makes me feel like swallowing an entire bottle of Flintstones vitamins more than having tons of work to do, but no excitement about doing it. We all know what it feels like to strongly resist work that needs to be done, but what makes us not feel like working? Is it truly laziness, or are we identifying it wrong? It turns out, what makes us procrastinate can come from dozens of places, some of which are deeply rooted psychologically. What Steven Pressfield did with this book is teach me to be an expert at identifying resistance and moving past it. If you do anything creative for a living and sometimes lack the motivation to get the work done, this book will help you in an astounding and concise way.
