Finding Your "One Thing"
One of the assumptions coaches often make is that everyone has a particular task to complete in life. Maybe we are called to build a company or go to the mission field or raise godly kids—it could be almost anything. So we focus on identifying and moving toward the legacy-leaving “one thing” that will fulfill the client’s destiny. But is it really true that everyone has a particular thing to accomplish in life that is at the heart of their calling? Reexamining that assumption can lead us to some interesting conclusions.
I once worked with a client who just could not figure out what he was called to do. We looked at different roles he could fill, different careers and how his strengths would play out in certain types of projects, all to no avail.

Coaching the Artist Within explains the techniques creativity coaches employ to help artists overcome obstacles and start producing. Focused on developing the habits and routines of a productive artist, the book’s twelve lessons and numerous exercises explain how to coach artists beyond the obstacles that block creativity. Chapters focus on key areas like generating energy in the midst of daily demands, staying centered, dealing with fears and anxiety, and developing a creative lifestyle. Author Eric Maisel illustrates these principles with anecdotes from his own creativity coaching clients from a variety of disciples: painters, actors, screenwriters, novelists, dancers, poets, and more. Coaching the Artist Within will teach you to self-coach or coach creativity issues, and the results will transform your relationship with the creative process. It also includes extensive information on the process of self-coaching for creative individuals. Early chapters deal with "Becoming a Self-Coach" and "Making Meaning." Later ones focus on generating energy (even in the midst of day-to-day demands), centering, managing anxiety, perfecting creativity planning, and maintaining a creative life. These "skill lessons" help would-be artists stifle negative thoughts and develop and use scheduling skills for starting and completing creative projects
