The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles is written by Seven Pressfield. Written in 2002, I just discovered this book this year.

IF you’re a procrastinator, this book is for you. IF you’re a creative person stuck in the body of a procrastinator, read this book.

IF you’re constantly giving excuses about why you haven’t worked hard enough or achieved success, this book is for you.

Women I love – Rhonda Rousey

Rhonda 1

So, I hate boxing, but I love Rhonda Rousey. Weird, right?  You can’t help but love Rhonda. She’s an mixed martial artist and judoka. She is UFC’s current Bantamweight champion. She has dominated every opponent in the ring. She was WON every single fight in the 1st round by an arm-bar move. Oh yeah, she also has an Olympic medal in judo (Summer 2008).

She started a female empowerment campaign called don’t be a “DO-NOTHING-BITCH.”
