Could you be getting in your way of producing great work? Have you started a project but never finished? Would you like to do work that matters, but don't know where to start? The answer is Do the Work, a manifesto by best-selling author Steven Pressfield, that will show you that it’s not about better ideas, it’s about actually doing the work. Do the Work is a weapon against Resistance - a tool that will help you take action and successfully ship projects out the door.
“There is an enemy. There is an intelligent, active, malign force working against us. Step one is to recognize this. This recognition alone is enormously powerful. It saved my life, and it will save yours.” For other titles like Do the Work, visit thedominoproject.com for more information.

Since Change is the only constant, Growth is change and change is good! I'm constantly seeking new books so I can feel good about changing!
Loved it! Quick listen and powerful information that was soooo helpful and came right at the right time...there is resistance and then there is Assistance. ..This was the ASSISTANCE! Amen!
Pressfield has incredible insight and strategic philosophies based on ample creative experience. The War of Art and Do the Work are as brilliant a pair of companion tomes for creatives, as the Tao te Ching and the Art of War are for life and business. If you haven't heard the word, get to it. Pressfield knows your mind and aims to help you do the untangling you need to move through your work with verve and commitment toward powerful completion.
Rare and life changing, even for the most talented and prolific.
This is a great story that can be listened to frequently to get a pick-me-up! If you are looking to establish the habit of getting things done, Do The Work, is a premier start. Stephen Pressley provides a concise outline on how to work through any resistance you may be experiencing in getting something, anything completed. I plan to use this book for actualizing my vision board goals!
Steven cuts to the chase, no sugar coating, and says it like it is. one of the best books I have came across in a long time . it's the type of book that lights a spark and you want to listen to it again and again
I just listened to Mr. Pressfield's book for the 12th time. For creators trying to put something out there for the world or anyone trying to accomplish a difficult goal, there is nothing better. Bravo...again.
And by creator, I don't mean God almighty, but all us grunts here on the planet, creating with a small C. I'm not alone in thinking so. Screenplay guru, Robert McKee, author of 'Story', wrote a brilliant introduction to Pressfield's first book about creator vs. resistance, 'The War of Art'. Seth Godin was so impressed with the book that he tracked Stephen down so that he could help publish this book: 'Do the Work'.
This book is short, and all the more powerful for it. In reading/listening to it, anyone set on creating anything will gain new insight into their creative process, and walk away with practical and immediately applicable skills to complete and ship the object of their love.
Do yourself a favor and get the audiobook version. Pressfield is a brilliant narrator and brings his book to life in a way that made me smile and chuckle and laugh and cry.
Is it worth the price of admission? Hell yes. (oops - sorry, God!)
