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.
