Resistance Is Futile


Man. People do this every day? Really? Okay.

Forcing myself to write here regularly, whether I’m inspired or not, is good for me because that’s good writing practice.

Not wanting to write or not having anything to write about can be a sign of resistance — there is something there but for whatever reason you don’t want it to be there.

So when you develop the practice of writing every day, it no longer matters whether it’s there or not, resisting or not. You do it first, force the ideas to follow you.

We lead. By putting pen to paper, thoughts to words. The world and its ideas follows. We lead. They follow.

    Resistance… you are the one who sent me to Pressfield’s book. Thank you, working my way through Part 3 and blown away.

    Your openness here has inspired me. Please continue.

    Yeah, I have linked to it — and thought about linking it to it here but didn’t because I don’t want to seem like I’m obsessing over one book. However, I just read something last night that said that great blogs show the paths of their obsessions — interest x attention — so to that end —

    The book we’re referring to is Stephen Pressfield’s The War of Art. A must for any creator. Which all of us are. In very simple terms, it helps break down why you’re not producing — why you’re resisting.

    Thanks for writing Mike. Your words encourage me.
