Book Review: Do The Work by Steven Pressfield

Product Description: Could 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.

“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.”

Available in both a 5-pack and 48-pack for you to share, as well as a special collectible edition, Do the Work may be just what you need to get out of your own way.

My Thoughts

Another good read about getting started and finding your motivation.

A great read to help remind yourself to fight the demons that keep you from starting something new and being confident in yourself.

I needed this read. My motivation has been lost for my running. This book helped remind me how to stay away from the negative thoughts and achieve my goals(run a marathon and other long distances). It reminded me to stay true to my crazy thoughts about projects and ideas I have in my teaching job.

I highlighted a lot of text on my Kindle App. When you read this book, be sure to turn on the highlights so you can see all my notes and highlights to showcase the really important parts of this book.

Feel free to strike a conversation with me about this book and how it has helped you. I hope to share how it has helped me once I get done writing this review.

It reads like a Seth Godin book. Which is good because his books are fantastic.

Do I need to say more? Really? Read it and see for yourself.
