    Description

    The follow-up to his best-seller The War of Art, Turning Pro navigates the passage from the amateur life to a professional practice. 

    "You don't need to take a course or buy a product. All you have to do is change your mind." (Steven Pressfield, author)

    Turning pro is free, but it's not easy. When we turn pro, we give up a life with which we may have become extremely comfortable. We give up a self we have come to identify with and to call our own. 

    Turning pro is free, but it demands sacrifice. The passage from amateur to professional is often achieved via an internal odyssey whose trials are survived only at great cost, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. We pass through a membrane when we turn pro. It's messy, and it's scary. We tread in blood when we turn pro. 

    What we get when we turn pro. What we get when we turn pro is we find our power. We find our will and our voice, and we find our self-respect. We become who we always were but had until then been afraid to embrace and live out.

    ©2012 Steven Pressfield (P)2012 Steven Pressfield

    reconnect with ur why and start acting like a pro

    I thought this book was about some technique on how to stop procrastination and self doubt when it comes to executing the work of a desired endeavour. But no it's not. This book is more about recharging and remembering your why you're doing what your doing it and to motivate you to stop the excuses and start doing. it will talk to a deep part of you. A book to be read and read as many times ad needed.

    Not meaningful, nor profound

    Overly extended anecdotes that lacked meaning or significance. Lacked depth and substance; did not expand meaningfully or in any way philosophically, as much as it tried to be.

    Life changing

    If you need a good kick in the ass and reminder that greatness comes to those who put their nose down, work and have patience...this is for you. Be prepared to be called out and put in a very interesting place emotionally if you’ve been giving in to your vices. We all start out as amateurs, life is about turning pro.

    Audio book was not the best format

    Given the book is divided into numerous chapters composed of a concept and short exposition, it had the feel of having a daily thought calender being read out loud. I appreciated the content, but it is probably better suited to a written format rather than audio book.

    Excellent

    This is a fantastic book and I cant understand why it's not more popular. I stumbled across it and it has already changed my way of thinking.

    meh

    I didn't love it. It was very simple with over 90 chapters, most of which were about a minute long, upwards of 6 minutes.
    The expection from the title and the contents left me feeling like he left a lot of possible material on the table.
    He had an interesting story about his discovery of learning what responsibility and ambition are about, but unless you're a hobo/bum/tramp [all of which were defined] living in a shack and working your way up to a mediocre living, it's not what you're looking to relate with, imho.
    This book's most interesting point was the Shadow self, and while you can be a professional at it, it's not your true self. I did appreciate that insite.

    I guess I just wasn't impressed, sorry.

    A bunch of meaningless observations

    Turning Pro made little sense. It started with the difference between amateur and professional in the first few pages and then gave 90+ examples like professionals are serious and armatures are less serious, really? Thanks. Save your money on this one.

    Not what I was expecting

    What the heck was that, and who was the intended audience?
    I am a "part-time" artist and I'm conscientiously trying to take my art more seriously and move to a higher level. I enjoyed the author's previous "War of Art". From the title and description, I figured that this book was for me. Nope.

    Where I thought that the book would be about "amateurs" who were doing pretty good but need to be better, the author's definition of "amateurs" seems to be addicts who can't hold down a job. There's no useful advice for those of us who are somewhat on the right track.

    The only helpful statements in this book were better said in "War of Art" (or countless other books on creativity or self improvement.)

    Great narration. Good message.

    The Narrative is great. It was easy to listen at Double speed. The story may have been more pertinent to actual artist as opposed to an entrepreneur. There is decent crossover in the message. the message flowed well and was easy to listen to.

    Drill für Künstler

    Was ist das Gegenteil von gut? Gut gemeint. Der Kern der Aussagen ist OK, aber die Art und Weise, wie es formuliert ist und vorgetragen wird, ist so überbetont kämpferisch-aggressiv - eben typisch Amerikanisch prollig. Wer’s mag … Aber wer weiß, was es heißt, erwachsen zu sein und ein selbstbestimmtes Leben zu führen, kann sich die Lektüre sparen. Nervtötend ist auch, dass es kein professioneller Sprecher liest, sondern der Autor. Keine gute Idee.
