Don’t prepare. Begin.
Remember, our enemy is not lack of preparation; it’s not the difficulty of the project or the state of the marketplace or the emptiness of our bank account.
The enemy is resistance.
The enemy is our chattering brain, which, if we give it so much as a nanosecond, will start producing excuses, alibis, transparent self-justifications, and a million reasons why we can’t/shouldn’t/won’t do what we know we need to do.
Start before you’re ready.
Do the Work, by Steven Pressfield (via b/a/l/l/e/n)
Been feeling this lately in a few different aspects of life.
"Castello Cavalcanti" - Wes Anderson, 2013
For all of you anxiously awaiting Wes Anderson’s upcoming film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, February likely feels a million years away right now. Thankfully, he’s just released a short film/Prada commerical to tide us over: “Castello Cavalcanti”, starring Jason Schwartzman as a racecar driver during the Molte Miglia rally in 1955, will be showcased at the Rome Film Festival this weekend.
Or, you know, right here on your computer, right now.

Andrew Bujalski’s COMPUTER CHESS wowed audiences at Sundance, SXSW, and Berlin this year. Now it’s your chance to get it directly from the filmmakers at http://buy.computerchessmovie.com/, powered by VHX.
I highly recommend this movie. It’s really weird and awesome.
We had too much fun wearing the new VHX t-shirts.
