Getting Started

The hard part is getting started.

It often feels like the road is blocked or that you can’t build up any speed to get over the hump.

Steven Pressfield calls this The Resistance. It’s every artist’s enemy.

This foe can be temporarily vanquished. Sometimes through sheer willpower and sometimes through deceit or just a lucky break.

Systems and habits are the enemies of Resistance. I should know because I’m in the battle every day.

You just have to start. The smallest thing is enough to get going.

Just thread that needle and begin.
