Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching™ Stories

With Jill Badonsky, MEd

There are Muses everywhere. In the characters we love in books, in movies; real people in the news, in magazines, and right next door. These Muses inspire us when we pay attention to their stories and with this inspiration we can learn to stir our own magnificence.

This series exposes you to stories filled with the inspiration of everyday Muses. In Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching™ we believe that stories bring concepts alive. Lists of how-to's, theory, and advice only go so far in motivating our understanding about the creative process; eyes glaze over with concept-overload, and how-to lists add to overwhelm. But in stories, ahhh, that's where we see how creative techniques are lived in real life. We see and understand the creative success of actions inspired by grace, ingenuity and courage.
