Review: Do the Work by Steven Pressfield

I've had a Kindle copy of Do the Work by Steven Pressfield for several years. This book is small but powerful. Simple yet profound.

Every now and then when my motivation lags, usually due to life crap over which I have no control, I read that little book again to get me moving forward.

About Do the Work

First published in 2014, the book is ever fresh and always inspiring. The 1,192 reviews averaging 4.2 out of 5 stars speaks well of this little book.

"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?"

If that describes you and your latest project, you need to read  Do the Work. You'll see that it's not about getting better ideas. It's about getting off your butt and doing the work. Get moving.

Pressfield described his book this way.

"Do the Work is structured to take the reader from A to Z. If the reader has a project they want to start or complete, such as a new business they want to open or a book they want to write, Do the Work is designed to take them from starting to shipping to hitting all the predictable resistance points along the way.

"I know you’re familiar with these moments; The beginning, the middle, and all the moments in between just before you ship and then just after you ship. Do the Work guides you from the start of the project and takes you all the way through. It’s about getting off your behind and starting something."

Takeaway Truth

What's holding you back? Maybe you need a boot in the butt? Read Do the Work.
