What is So Hard?

A friend of mine gave me a book today, knowing that it fit perfectly with my interests.  He didn't know, but this book has been on my wish list for a while now.  I've heard from several people how awesome the book is. The book is The War of Art by Steven Pressfield.  Early on in the book, Pressfield makes a simple but profound statement:
"There's a secret that real writers know that wannabe writers don't, and the secret is this: It's not the writing part that's hard. What's hard is siting down to write."
This is most definitely true for anything important in life. If you want to be successful, it takes action.  Pressfield is a writer.  I'm an entrepreneur and software engineer.  It applies everywhere. The hardest part is taking the time to get started with whatever it is I need to do. If you have a hard time making the time for important things, or if you procrastinate in general, then this book is for you.
