Midweek Quote: Do The Work

The Big Crash

We were doing so great.  Our project was in high gear, we were almost finished (maybe we actually were finished).

Then inevitably-

Everything crashes.

If our project is a movie, the star checks into rehab.  If it’s a business venture, the bank pulls our financing.  If it’s a rodeo, our star bull runs away with a heifer.

The Big Crash is so predictable, across all fields of enterprise, that we can practically set our watches by it. p72

When we experience panic, it means that we’re about to cross a threshold.  We’re poised on the doorstep of a higher plane. p 77

The good news is it’s just a problem. p. 79

Get to THE END as quickly as if the devil himself were breathing down your neck and poking in the butt with his pitchfork.  Believe me he is. p. 37

Shipping is not for squeamish or the faint of heart.  It requires killer instinct.  We’ve got the monster down; now we have to drive a stake through its heart. p 87.

Do the Work- by Steven Pressfield
