In for the Long Haul

Day 9 of 10 at the Digital Book Club over at talk.desk.pm. We are reading Turning Pro by Steven Pressfield.

Steven wraps up with so many relevant and intertwined themes:

  • Practice
  • Trusting the mystery
  • Working over your head
  • Playing for the long haul
  • Playing hurt
  • The second self
  • Discipline
  • The Audience

For me “in for the long haul” sums up nicely. Practice is a continuous process. Discipline takes time as is learning and serving the audience.

The other aspect here is not playing it safe. Playing hurt and working over your head takes courage and commitment.

Here is to turning pro!
