Passa Plemmyris Peritrepetai

Passa Plemmyris Peritrepetai

– Last of the Amazons

Every tide turns, as does every situation

Living the dream, something could happen and change your life completely, you could lose all your assets and be left with nothing

Have nothing, one idea can change your life and turn it all around

Wheather the beach exposed or the tide is bashing the sea defences

Eventually it will turn, this is nature

This is life

Plunge in anyway

No choice but to plunge in anyway

– Steven Pressfield

In the authentic swing notes from Steven Pressfield first novel

He talks about sometimes a writer doesn’t know what the theme of a book is before or during writing

But he says that’s fine we just have to plunge in anyway

Meaning do the work and write before you have all your ducks in a row

This is true for anything we do in life

A completely unrelated example

I am useless at the online dating thing

I would spend far too long thinking about an opening line then think about what I would say after that and have this whole conversation in my head before I even sent a message

Most of the time the messages never got sent

But when we do the work

Things start to play out and results manifest

Writing the book the theme unfolds
Sending tbe first message the conversation starts
Putting a few quid in a savings account and before you know it you have a nice little some

Whatever you do, you have to plunge in without the answers

Don’t cheat the world of your contribution.

Don’t cheat the world of your contribution. Give it what you’ve got

– Steven Pressfield

We’re not going to be a hit overnight
Our work may go unnoticed for a very long time.
We may feel like we’re getting nowhere
But one day all of a sudden  something might change.

But it never will if we give up on day 2.
If we wait till we’ve worked those overtime shifts
Or we have all our ducks in a row.

Because it never will happen.
So get in your office, workshop, studio or wherever  you produce your art and Do the work.

Because your contribution matters.
Especially more than ever today.
