  1. 1. Do the Work bySteven Pressfield “Painted “by @IvanaSendecka
  2. 2. About this book “This book isdesigned to coach you through a project (a book, a ballet, a newbusiness venture, a philanthropic enterprise) from conception to finished product,seeing it from the point of view of Resistance.” Steven Pressfield
  3. 3. Know Our* Enemies #1 Resistance #2 Rational Thought #3 Friends & Family * artist’s & entrepreneur’s
  4. 4. #1 ResistanceResistance aims to kill our genius, our soul, the unique gift we were put on this Earth to give and that no one else has got but us. Rule of a thumb:The more important a call or action is to our soul’sevolution, the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.
  5. 5. #2 Rational ThoughtWe want to work from the Self, that is from instinct & intuition, from the unconscious. Bad things happen when we employ rational thought, because rational thought comes from the ego.
  6. 6. #3 Friends & Family With some exceptions (God bless them), friends & family are the enemy of this unmanifested you, this The problem with family & friends is unborn self, that they know us as we are. this future being.Prepare yourself to make new friends.
  7. 7. Our Allies* are #1 Stupidity #2 Stubbornness #3 Blind Faith #4 Passion #5 Assistance #6 Friends & Family* Champions on our side
  8. 8. #1 Stupidity Ignorance and arrogance are the artist’s & entrepreneurs indispensable allies. She must be clueless enough to have no idea how difficult her enterprise is going to be – and cocky enough to believe she can pull it off anyway.
  9. 9. #2 Stubbornness Be stubborn!It will keep us from stopping.Once we commit to action, the worst thing we can do is to stop.We don’t have to be heroes to be stubborn.We can just be pains in the butts. We are in till the finish.
  10. 10. #3 Blind FaithOur mightiest ally is belief in somethingwe cannot see, hear, touch, taste, or feel. Resistance wants to rattle that faith. Resistance wants to destroy it.
  11. 11. #4 Passion Fear saps passion.Picasso painted with passion, Mozart When we composed with it. conquer our fears,A child plays with it we discover a all day long. boundless, bottomless, inexhaustible well of passion.
  12. 12. #5 AssistanceResistance is the shadow, its opposite -Assistance is the sun.
  13. 13. #6 Friends & Family Only two things will remain with us, when we cross the river: our inhering genius & the hearts we love.
  14. 14. Three act structure Break the sheet of foolscap into 3 parts: # 1 Beginning # 2 Middle # 3 End Start at the End! Answer the question: Then fill in the gaps.
  15. 15. Remember 3+ 1 M a n t r a s
  16. 16. The creative art is Stay Primitive primitive.Its principles are of birth & genesis. The most highly cultured mother gives birth sweating & dislocated & cursing like a sailor.
  17. 17. “Trust the Soup”We mean the Muse, the unconscious, the Quantum Soup. The sailor hoists his canvas, trusting that the wind (which is invisible and which he can neither see nor control) will appear and power him upon his voyage.You & I hoist our canvas to catch ideas.
  18. 18. Swing for the seats! Start playing from power.A home-run swing that results in a strikeout is better than a successful bunt or even a line-drive single.
  19. 19. Be ready for Resistance Invisible, impersonal, universal force, which never sleeps.Fear, self-doubt, procrastination, addiction, distraction, timidity, ego and narcissism, perfectionism etc.
  20. 20. Meet those who did “do the work” + Seth Godin Thank You, guys!Thanks for having guts to challenge the status quo! Thank you for exemplifying fight against Resistance.
