Start more than you can finish : a creative permission slip to unleash your best ideas / written and illustrated by Becky Blades.


"Starting is a skill. And like any other skill, it can be learned, practiced and mastered. When we do it right, we can go anywhere, start anything. We all need to start more. To imagine things and push the ignition switch to begin them. We need to start things that will take ten minutes and things that will take five years, and things we will never, ever finish. Because acting on our ideas is the best of who we are. Whether we finish them or not. Start More Than You Can Finish empowers readers to become stARTists: initiators with a bias for action and the courage to ignite our ideas. Mining the best habits of artists and entrepreneurs, this book introduces the concept of "startistry," or "stARTistry" (registered trademark). It spotlights the 4-step starting/changemaking process we all use subconsciously, and turns it on its ear to introduce a new way of thinking about starting: it empowers creatives to start right where they are, and to start MORE. Using digestible data, humorous and honest personal experience, interviews with fascinating stARTists, and assignments to help you get started, Start More Than You Can Finish challenges the tropes our dads, moms and 3rd grade teachers told us about finishing. Ultimately, the book proves that in today's world, we must, in fact, START MORE. Certainly more than we can finish" -- Provided by publisher.
