EP123 - Sit Down and Do The Work

Good day, my friend. Welcome to A Moment with Moj. Thank you so much for downloading the show. I have to admit, being here with you today makes me feel pretty jovial. I hope you were able to shut up that inner critic, even for just a little while yesterday. We're going to continue our look at The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. This is from page iii of the forward, "The day by day, step by step campaign of the professional: Preparation, Order. Patience, Indurance, Acting in the face of fear and failure No excuses, no bullshit"
