Do the Work (New York: The Domino Project, 2011)

If you are a writer—or a creative of any time—this book is must reading. It is not that different from the War of Art, but I found it more focused and helpful. If you are having a hard time getting started on that really important project or if you are stuck, this book is for you!

    Absolutely agree! Read it a few weeks ago! Very helpful insights!

    I just started reading this on my Kindle for Mac app.  Offers incredible insights that speak to the creative process with which I’ve wrestled for so, so long.

    Definitely a good shove to get moving (again)!

    I’ve got it on my “To Read” list. Hopefully I’ll get to it soon.

  • Anita Rawls Denson

     Thanks for the recommendation. I have never read either book. I grabbed a sample of each on my Kindle, and I am looking forward to digging in later this evening.

    Just took a sneak peak of this on Amazon, now I think I need to pick up a copy. Thanks for the suggestion

      You won’t be sorry.

  • Ken Gire

    I got a Google alert today that quoted you, saying how much you liked “Windows of the Soul.” It was very kind of you, Mike. Thank you. Ken Gire

    Just started reading “The War of Art”, should I just switch over to “Do the Work”? Both books are on my Kindle.

    • Michael Hyatt

      I think both are worth reading. Both are also short.

    • Dave Hearn

      I think Do the Work is considered to be a sequel to The War of Art… I agree-it’s worth reading both in succession.

      • Michael Hyatt

        I loved it, but I found a lot of overlap.

    So you spend money to read a book rather than dive in. Just sounds like more procrastination to me! Plus you are poorer! LOL

    • Joe Lalonde

      For some it may be procrastination. But for others I think it’s the desire to learn and decide the best course of action.

        thanks, good point.

    I’m hooked on these Domino Project books. About to dive into Do The Work. Just finished Poke The Box. Great reading.
