The Long Haul

Published: 19/03/21

Steven Pressfield has a real knack for hammering a point home.

Our work is a practice. One bad day is nothing to us. Ten bad days are nothing.

In the scheme of our lifelong practice, twenty-four hours when we can’t gain yardage is only a speed bump. We’ll forget it by breakfast tomorrow and be back again, ready to hurl our bodies into the fray.

I love this. In creative practice, it’s so easy to have a “bad day” and label ourselves terrible artists.

But viewed through the lens of a lifelong practice, a “bad day” is insignificant.
