This is a great piece, John, and it really resonated. I have read some of Pressfield's books and had forgotten these important lessons. Great reminder. I kind of fell off the horse this week and missed publishing because of just way too many commitments and crises. Reading this, I'm inspired to climb back on. And, Bagger Vance is one of my favorite golf movies, too.

Hey John I loved this issue. #2, #3, #5, and #9 were my favourites. #3 was particularly powerful.

I was wondering if you could elaborate on #1. How exactly can we be our own obstacle?

Thanks for this John. #s 5, 6, & 10 most resonate in this moment, but all those 10 lessons are a perpetually relevant lazy Susan of useful flavors to add to the work day.
