  1. heron  
    In this letter, I explore the metaphor of a heron overcoming self-doubt and resistance to take flight and follow its dreams. Though facing storms and setbacks, the Heron battles an inner voice of doubt, represented by a croaking frog, which it ultimately silences by devouring. It relates this to doing meaningful creative work by outlining principles from Steven Pressfield's 'The War of Art' and “Do the Work.” We must engage with resistance and persist despite difficulty to ship creative and entrepreneurial work. This letter also relates the Heron's journey to Le Guin's 'The Eye of the Heron'. Just as the Heron achieves flight through courage and determination, we realize our potential by battling resistance and completing our work.
