The War of Art, 20 Nov. 2011
If you are already on the "path" and your thoughts have been boiling for years, and it is the right time for you then I believe you do come across "things" to help convince you that you are evolving in a way which is right for you.
This book did it for me. I do feel I am arty in many ways, lots of things excite me and I want to achieve in lots of areas. Well whats stopping me.
Pressfield calls it resistance - I feel the difference between achieving and non achievement is purely and simply the doing. Simply to analyze very difficult to get on and do it.
Pressfield gives his reasoning on why this is so and it resonated with me. We do anything but just get on with it, and he goes on to say this at length but in chunks you just want to go on munching with insights, and appealed to me of the mystery of it all.
Also found little pockets of education in philosophy and other arts. Backed his thoughts up with a few well selected quotes and anecdotes.
I found it quick to read, moved along nicely no overkill, gave me inspiration in pocket size.
Would like to say it has changed me, ask me later....
