Product description

Whatever you do, says Dr. Eric Maisel, creativity helps you do it better. Creativity encourages the artist to paint more frequently and authentically. It allows a busy executive to see her options more quickly, make changes more fluidly, and become more self-directing and confident. In this book, America's foremost expert on the psychological side of the creative process presents a complete one-year plan for increasing and unleashing your creativity. It includes two disucssions/exercises per week, and culminates in a guided project of your choice--from working on a current novel or symphony to planning a new home business or becoming a more effective supervisor.
