Seven Powers of Creating:
PICTURE—the inner vision of what you want to create. POSITION—what makes what you create special and unique. PLAN—organizing the action needed to bring the picture into reality. PASSION—the fuel the drives the engine of creating. PARTNERS—who you choose to create with can lift you upward. PERSISTENCE—the commitment to stay with something until it’s real. PEACE—finding inner confidence, calm, and well-being right now.

I was really impressed with the book because I received significantly more value from it than I had ever expected. It broke down the complexity of any large task into 7 simple steps, all of which are thoroughly explained, then followed up with anecdotes to show the applicability. I think my favorite part was that is didn't aim to "help" me, but rather motivate me by showing how simple it is to tackle a large task by focusing on one aspect at a time.
This book was very inspiring. It shows how anyone at any age could work to create something that is meaningful and important to them.
Great for entry level creators
This books delivers essential information to anyone who is interested in creating something. As someone who has created many diverse projects, I felt that most of the lessons were basic, and all things I already knew. Had I never created anything before, I think this book would be useful. If you’re an experienced artist or creator, skip it. You know this stuff.
There is an interesting fiction piece that snakes through this book. It was interested and helped keep me reading. Unfortunately, the “Clear Waters” story cops out in the end, never getting into specifics, and drastically altering the speed of the story’s timeline. I wasn’t expecting it, and suppose it was more entertaining than not.
All in all, super average read, for me. You might find it interesting, and that’s great, but for seasoned creators, don’t bother.
