In The War of Art, author Steven Pressfield defines our major creative enemy, which he calls the resistance. He details how the resistance prevents us from doing our best work and defines some strategies for overcoming resistance and moving forward. I’ve heard many writers (Ryan Holiday and Seth Godin to name a few) recommend this book so I finally bit the bullet and picked it up. Perhaps surprisingly, I didn’t love it. It’s a bit too abstract for my personal liking, but it’s fast and good enough to read if you’re looking for inspiration.
