Note To Self – On Criticism

Picked up my copy of The War Of Art by Steven Pressfield this afternoon and started reading it – again.

It’s my go-to book whenever I’m tempted to believe resistance to my work is coming from the outside.

It never is. Its always coming from me.

If you wish to create a an artistic work of any kind, I strongly recommend Pressfields book. It’s incredibly sensible, motivating and clarifying.

Todays Note To Self – stop thinking being a critic is the work. It isn’t the work. It’s resistance to doing our own work which makes us criticise others. Stop it. Man up. Just get to work.

“The critic hates most that which he would have done himself if he had had the guts.”
