Don't die before you make your dent in the universe.
Do you ever feel like you have something special to offer the world? Something that only you can bring to the table?
With your unique talents, past experiences, and passions, you can make something totally new.
Is it a novel? Is it a screenplay? A Michelin-star restaurant? Maybe it's the next billion-dollar app, or a world-changing non-profit.
Whatever it is, it's your art. And it's just waiting to get out of you. All you have to do is start.
In The Heart to Start, David Kadavy takes you through his journey from cubicle-dweller to best-selling author, showing you how to systematically break through creative resistance, overcome perfectionism, and bring your work into the world.
- Find "The Art Inside You," and learn to see the forces that keep you from making it real. Tap into your potential.
- Catch yourself "Inflating The Investment," and learn how to find the time to follow your art, even if you feel like you don't have the time.
- Bust through writer's block by overcoming "The Linear Work Distortion."
- Use your own procrastination to your advantage with "Motivational Judo."
The examples are woven amongst the stories of great creators. From Maya Angelou to Seth Godin. From J. K. Rowling to Steven Pressfield. You'll hear from a Hollywood screenwriter, a chef, and even a creator of a hit board game.
Whether you're writing a novel, starting a business, screenwriting, or making a film - whether you're a writer, an artist, an entrepreneur, or culinary master - The Heart to Start will arm you with the creative confidence you need to win the inner war and let your art shine.
Pablo Picasso once said "Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone."
The world needs your work, so don't wait.
