Hey there! In this blog post, I want to share the five lessons I learned from the book Do the work by Steven Pressfield. The things I learned from this book helped me to better approach big pieces of work and deliver more of them.
The resistance you feel when going out of your comfort zone is natural among humans. It is natural to feel it, for example, when you have to do things that involve some significant effort, confront some fear, work on something that doesn’t pay off immediately, or get under the spotlight.
That resistance gets in the middle between you and delivering that big piece of work that you want. The one you want to ship and that you know is going to be good for your career.
Acknowledging that such resistance is natural is a great first step towards dealing better with it. To put that resistance aside and deliver more and more often.
There is a phrase that says, “The hardest thing to do is start,” that’s pretty much what this lesson is about. I guess the idea is to acknowledge that if you’re not aware of that or keep it in mind if you already knew it (because of how important it is).
