Do the Work by Steven Pressfield
Start playing from power. We can always dial it back later. If we don’t swing for the seats from the start, we’ll never be able to drive a fastball into the upper deck.
When we experience panic, it means that we’re about to cross a threshold. We’re poised on the doorstep of a higher plane.
A professional does not take success or failure personally. That’s Priority Number One for us now. That our project has crashed is not a reflection of our worth as human beings. It’s just a mistake. It’s a problem—and a problem can be solved. Now we go back to our sheet of yellow foolscap. Where did we go wrong? Where did this train go off the tracks?
Fear of success is the essence of Resistance.
Stay stupid. Trust the soup. Start before you’re ready.
