The War of Art

The War of Art

Steven Pressfield

Overview

If you're self-employed or working in the artistic field, you know how hard beating procrastination can be. Waiting for inspiration to come or simply not having a set schedule can both be productivity killers. However, there are ways you can regain control of your professional life and embrace your fullest potential.

After graduating from university in 1965, Steve Press held a variety of different jobs from copywriter to schoolteacher and tractor-trailer driver. None of these satisfied his deeper yearning for creative expression. He kept moving from job to job until he realized that he'd known what his true mission was all along: writing. Once he decided to go for what he really wanted, he quickly turned his life around and dove fully into his work. Now, he's helping you do the same and embrace your destiny through fighting your urge to procrastinate and finding what sets your soul on fire.
