Eric MaiselTodays guest joining us on the Join Up Dots Podcast interview, has for many, many years preached the benefits of bringing creativity into all forms of our lives, through his keynote addresses, coaching sessions, appearances all over the media, and through the 40 plus books he has written.

Mr Eric Maisel, was born in the Bronx, New York, where he lived until the age of 5, but grew up in the Brooklyn area of New York City.

Education and the desire to learn and develop seems to be an inherent part of his personality as after 1968, after a three year stint in the military, unlike many people who have had enough of education as children he returned once again to the classroom.

He attended Oregon State University and the University of Oregon, where he received a B.S. in philosophy.

After this Mr Maisel earned a master’s degree in creative writing from San Francisco State University while ghost-writing mysteries and nonfiction and self-publishing fiction.

And then if this wasn’t enough in the ’80s he returned to school and earned a second bachelor’s degree in psychology, a second master’s degree in counselling, and a doctorate in counselling psychology.

So what is creative coaching?

And can we all bring this into our lives, if so many of us are in fulltime employment, and generally feel that we have little time for anything else?

Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only Eric Maisel.

Show Highlights

During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:

Why you can’t predict how hard a task is going to be until you undertake it!

How at 67 years old our guest still doesn’t have a plan to his life!

How he tried to dodge going to Vietnam, by enlisting and going to Korea instead!

How just three degrees either way can be the difference between success or failure!

And lastly……

Why most people would rather not start something than actually start something new!
