Steven Pressfield shares his #1 lesson for anybody in the working world:
Nobody wants to read your shit.
The market doesn’t know what you’re selling and doesn’t care. Your

art/business, no matter how worthy or how much you love it.

And my workouts (although I have been keeping it pretty consistent in the NYC marathon training). And so have the little things in life, like laundry, cooking, and calling family. This makes me feel like shit.

The first couple were 100% burns.
