Welcome to episode #251 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. Here's a confession: I'm a procrastinator. My favorite saying used to be: "if it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done." But that all changed back in 2003 when I read Steven Pressfield's book, The War Of Art. I had known Pressfield as a fiction writer (his best-known work, The Legend Of Bagger Vance, was also a huge Hollywood hit), but as the buzz began surrounding The War Of Art, I not only found myself devouring that book, but being able to look at how I create content in a very different light. People often ask me where I find the time to write books, Blog posts, articles, etc... while still growing Twist Image and having time for a personal life. Well, here's another confession: I internalized and acted on many of things Pressfield talks about in The War of Art. Last week, Pressfield dug deeper into what holds us back from the work we were meant to do by releasing a new business book, Do The Work! (which also happens to be the second release on Seth Godin's new publishing company, The Domino Project). Do The Work! is a quick read and it's more like a manifesto than a work of non-fiction. I was thrilled that Pressfield agree to spend some time talking about creativity and conquering whatever it is that is holding us back. Enjoy the conversation...
