Single-minded effort — Universal Principles

Single-minded effort

Seth Godin on how to not get stuck, via Zen Habits. He discusses the “resistance” – the part of your brain trying to keep things as they are in order to stay safe.

The resistance is powerful, so powerful that all the shortcuts, time savers and focusing tools are powerless in its path. Now you know its name. Now you know how it sneaks in under the radar and sounds quite sensible as it undermines your work and compromises your vision. When the resistance appears, you must call it out. Call it by name. Recognize it for what it is and then defeat it. You will defeat it not by rationalization or even a calm discussion. You will defeat it with single-minded effort, effort so deep and dedicated that it might exhaust you.
