Publisher's Summary

You have something to offer the world. Each day you delay starting, you get closer to dying with your art still inside you.

When he was 25, David found himself staring in the mirror for hours at a time. He didn't recognize the person he saw.

He saw someone with promise - someone with something to offer the world. Meanwhile, he was trapped by his fears. The advice to just get started was easier said than done.

Since then, David has escaped his cubicle in Nebraska, and built a life and career making his art as a best-selling author, blogger, podcaster, and entrepreneur - while traveling the world. All he had to do was start.

In The Heart to Start David Kadavy, best-selling author of Design for Hackers, shows you how to overcome fear, self-doubt, and distractions to win the inner war and finally let your art shine.

Through the stories of David, guests of his podcast, Love Your Work, and great creators from Picasso to Maya Angelou, you'll learn:

  • What "inner war" keeps your art inside you? You'll learn from Stephen Pressfield, Ryan Holiday, and Sean Stephenson.
  • Where can you find explosive ideas worth following? Learn about the magic of your inner voice from Maya Angelou, the Impressionist painters, and J. K. Rowling.
  • Why is perfectionism the most dangerous form of procrastination, and what can you do about it? You'll hear from Ira Glass and Ed Sheeran.
  • How can your big dreams actually hold you back? You'll learn from daredevil Evel Knievel and cartoonist Hugh MacLeod.
  • What motivational martial art can knock your ego on its back and propel your project forward? Learn from behavioral scientist Dan Ariely, and a U.S. submarine captain.

In The Heart to Start, writers, artists, filmmakers, musicians, and entrepreneurs will find the inspiration and mindset to bust through fear, self-doubt, and procrastination to show your work to the world.

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.
