Example text

Do The Work! 83 3. Add that Ahab lost the leg, fighting a whale. 4. Not just any whale, but Moby Dick himself. 5. Let Ahab tramp the quarterdeck nightlong, obsessed with vengeance—and let the echo of that whale-ivory leg resound through the crew’s quarters below like a knell of madness. 6. Add a crazed white streak running through Ahab’s hair and beard, as if metaphysical hatred-lightning had carved a scar upon his soul. 7. Add beats to heighten Ahab’s obsession. Here’s one: When the Pequod passes another whaling vessel, the Rachel, which has just seen and fought Moby Dick and lost beloved members of the crew, including the captain’s son, for whom they’re searching now, let Ahab spurn all appeals for help and drive his own ship faster in pursuit of the white whale.

Do The Work! 85 No matter how great a writer, artist, or entrepreneur, he is a mortal, he is fallible. He is not proof against Resistance. He will drop the ball; he will crash. That’s why they call it rewriting. The Point for Us The point for you and me is that we have passed through hell. We have worked our problem. We have solved it. We have escaped from the belly of the beast. 86 Steven Pressfield 3 END Do The Work! 87 Killer Instinct Why does Seth Godin place so much emphasis on “shipping”?

You “have” Resistance the same way you “have” a heartbeat. You are blameless. You retain free will and the capacity to act. Principle Number Five: The “Real You” Must Duel the “Resistance You” On the field of the Self stand a knight and a dragon. You are the knight. Resistance is the dragon. There is no way to be nice to the dragon, or to reason with it or negotiate with it or beam a white light around it and make it your friend. The dragon belches fire and lives only to block you from reaching the gold of wisdom and freedom, which it has been charged to guard to its final breath.
