So I'm almost done with another book called The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. It has been a great book and a quick, easy read. Generally the book is about overcoming Resistance which is the antagonist in any creative's life. It is filled with quick micro-chapters that pack a good punch.
One such micro-chapter called "A Professional Demystifies" states the following, which is worth quoting in full:
I love this idea that we are somewhat removed from the process of "making" the idea of our work. Instead we do the work knowing the idea will come, like preparing a dinner for an invited guest. We anticipate his arrival, we make sure there is a setting waiting for him whenever he decides to show.
