Master the art of the start with this new way of thinking, with exercises to help you unleash your ideas and create more.
In Start More Than You Can Finish, writer, artist, and entrepreneur Becky Blades offers a powerful new mindset for our modern world: acting on more ideas makes us happier – and reveals our highest creativity. She empowers readers to become "stARTists" – initiators with a bias for action and the courage to ignite ideas and introduces the concept of "stARTistry," spotlighting the 4-step starting process:
1. Imagine
2. Think
3. Decide
4. Act
Using digestible data, humorous and honest personal experience, interviews with artists and entrepreneurs, and assignments to help you get started, Start More Than You Can Finish challenges the tropes our dads, moms, and third-grade teachers told us about finishing. In today's world, we must, in fact, start more than we can finish.
FOR READERS OF: Start, Do Work That Matters, Show Your Work!, Do It For Yourself, and The Creative Curve
A BOOK FOR RISING CREATORS: A plucky non-fiction creative muse, Start More Than You Can Finish is a guilt-busting pep talk. It’s Austin Kleon meets Elizabeth Gilbert and Julia Cameron meets Daniel Pink.
AN INTRODUCTION TO stARTistry: Get familiar with power of creative initiative and the 4-step process that moves ideas from imagination to action. Reminiscent of NaNoWriMo (No Plot, No Problem) and Listography.
ESTABLISHED AUTHOR: Becky Blades speaks and teaches on the topic of creativity and has written articles for, McSweeney's, Live Happy, and others.
GIFT + SELF PURCHASE: An encouraging gift for a friend, family member, or colleague struggling with their creative confidence, or an empowering gift for yourself – to give you the tools to act on your ideas.
Perfect for:
  • Fans of Austin Kleon, Elizabeth Gilbert, Julia Cameron, and Daniel Pink
  • Creators struggling to begin a new project
  • Recent graduates embarking on a career of entrepreneurship or the arts
  • Artists and entrepreneurs looking to build creative courage
