4 things to remember:
1. It turns out that the negative thoughts (the Resistance, as Steven Pressfield calls them) will not come to you, if you are doing something that doesn't contribute to your growth as a person.
2. The more important your project is, the more Resistance you will feel.
3. The Resistance will become stronger and stronger as the end of your project approaches.
4. Use the Resistance as a guide to find out what really matters to you and do it.
