What Happens When You Just Get Started…

So I’m part way through my work for the day, and decided I’d knock this email off now, so I can’t finish off my work without the looming question of “what are you gonna write about?” subtly ruminating in the back of my mind…

It’s funny really, I get that feeling most days before I write.

It’s a kind of mental tension that builds, until I’ve written something that’s worthy of sending out to you readers.

Steven Pressfield calls it Resistance

It’s based on the knowledge that today I must I sit down to a blinking cursor on a blank document and make myself produce something…

Most days I haven’t got a clue what I’m going to write about as I face the blank page…

But, I just get moving, and start typing something… anything.

And I always end up with something.

There’s not been a day where I’ve set out to publish my daily content yet came up with nothing… despite how uninspired I felt prior to sitting down.

I start typing some random shit.

Then, soon enough, an idea, and BOOM!

I’m off.

It’s actually pretty darn fun once I latch onto my idea for the day.

Writing is very cathardic.

Steven Pressfield says in The War of Art:

“It’s not the writing part that’s hard. What’s hard is sitting down to write.”

Fuckin’ oath.

This doesn’t just apply to writing, you can apply this to anything that involves the creativity, and/or delayed-gratification in favour of long-term success…

The Gym.

Starting a Business.

Writing Music.

What’s hard is getting moving, but once you’re going, it’s usually quite fun.

Need help getting started?

Then go here.

All the best,
