Publisher's Summary

The Heart to Start is solid advice from David Kadavy. It's not too late.” (Seth Godin, author of Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us)
“Read it, then share it with a friend. I loved it.” (Jeff Goins, best-selling author of Real Artists Don't Starve)
“I wish this was the book I started with. I desperately needed it.” (James Altucher, entrepreneur and best-selling author of Choose Yourself)
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. 
The world needs your work, so don't wait. Listen now, and find the time, motivation, and confidence to make your art real.

Good listen. Nothing groundbreaking.

Thanks for the book. It was a good little quick listen but nothing I would care to give to a friend.
