But “just do it” usually just doesn’t work. Long-time creativity coach and therapist Eric Maisel has found an approach that does work: giving clients, andnow readers, a clear understanding of what makes them personally blocked or stuck and unable to start or finish.
Not enough time, resources, or talent? Fear of success, guilt about being “selfish,” and variations on the theme of “what’s the point?” Maisel has spent 30 years helping people overcome these kinds of blocks with skills including anxiety management, positive self-talk, cognitive behavioral therapy, and even “sleep thinking.”
The tools Maisel offers are a potent alternative to waiting for the spirit to move or the muse to inspire: a sustainable, self-directed path to success.
