Too often, I refrain from starting a creative project because the stars haven’t aligned, the temperature isn’t where I want it or my mood is off. Another words, I’m giving into (what Steven Pressfield calls) resistance.

Rather than worrying about who’s going to make the movie from the screenplay I wrote, just write the damn thing. Instead of mulling over what publisher is going to pick up your book, just write the bloody manuscript.

No doubt it’s going to get messy. Ugly. Most definitely uncomfortable, and we may end up feeling as if were the only person on the planet – naked and exposed to the elements.

This is exactly when we need to push through and focus on the process. No doubt, we will be better in the end after we follow through and complete it.
