In Start More Than You Can Finish, Blades draws on hundreds of interviews with stARTists plus research in neuroscience, creativity and behavioral science to arrive at a fresh take on starting and finishing.
Real-life examples from creators of all stripes — inventors, artists, chefs, writers, business innovators, teachers, song writers, speakers, gardeners and more — inspire hard hitting observations about how we get and move ideas.
Blades’ discoveries tee up a simple four-part starting process — a framework to shift our thinking from a one-at-a-time, finish-as-planned model to a shame-free, start-where-you-are mindset that lets ideas lead the way.
Ultimately, the book proves that in today’s world, we must, in fact, START MORE. Certainly more than we can finish.
