Easily top 5 non-business business book I've ever read. From the book's description: What keeps so many of us from doing what we long to do? Why is there a naysayer within? How can we avoid the roadblocks of any creative endeavor—be it starting up a dream business venture, writing a novel, or painting a masterpiece? The War of Art emphasizes the resolve needed to recognize and overcome the obstacles of ambition and then effectively shows how to reach the highest level of creative discipline. Think of it as tough love...for yourself.

This book taught me and really cemented the idea of being "process-oriented" over "goal-oriented." Being process-oriented has some awesome implications to peak performance - where just showing up consistently for your craft is obvious, but an often neglected step one.

@kickingthetv Pairs wonderfully with both Mastery books, by George Leonard and Robert Greene.

Unapologetically confrontational, unequivocally transformational...thank you Seth Godin & Tim Ferriss for the heads up (on the latest episode of The Tim Ferriss - Tim's podcast); thank you Steven Pressfield for writing this masterpiece!
