Archives For maturity

If you’re following along, I mentioned maturity as my guess for what is behind turning pro really means. I did this, seriously, without looking ahead at today’s assignment. As if Mr. Pressfield has telepathically¬† given me the cliff’s notes, the very first chapter in today’s reading said just as much.

“Becoming a pro, in the end, is nothing grander than growing up.”

In the chapters that follow, we’re presented with a very powerful “character” to illustrate amateurs – the addict. Powerful because I (and probably you) can identify wholeheartedly with him. He’s described as the “egoist”- turning everything into self-promotion.
