Have you ever encountered resistance? Have you ever felt like there’s something you need to do, but for all intents and purposes you continue to put it off? This is what we call resistance and it takes many forms. I think it plagues all of us; it definitely plagues me from time to time. With that in mind, there is a book on this topic known as the War Of Art by Steven Pressfield.
The War of Art is a book that essentially says that resistance takes many forms. It could be procrastination, working on other projects, talking to others, and more. That resistance can be a crippling problem for a creative person.
Now, the real question is how do we fix it? I’ll give you my best way to handle resistance.
Fixing The Problem
The best way to handle resistance is to recognize it. Recognize that it’s a problem and takes many forms. Recognize that you are delaying the inevitable that comes with the work that you have to do. You and I both know that nagging feel never goes away. You have to tackle the work head-on for the problem to resolve itself. You have to do what needs to be done to resolve the problems in your head and life. Once you start, it gets easier. The world wants you to give your truest expression and put in work that matters to you. More importantly, you want you to do the work; you owe it to yourself to gain credit with yourself. Resolve those issues by turning to the game that you want to complete and creating it one piece at a time.
With that said, good luck game making!!
