On Wednesday, March 9, 2011, Beth and I interviewed Dr. Kathy Jordan about the beauty of “creative dilemmas” and how we can have fulfilling, purposeful lives regardless of our age or circumstances. We discussed questions such as: “How do I make changes that will allow me to live out my life purpose?” “What is uniquely creative about me?” “Where was I when I had my last creative idea?” Kathy advised us to infuse our lives with creativity and discipline and to experiment, discover, learn, and integrate our learning into our life on a daily basis. She encouraged us to collaborate wherever and whenever possible (“We change our lives most effectively when we have compadres or fellow travelers.”) and to make sure we do something fun and joyful each and every day.

I encourage you to listen to this uplifting interview if you seek wholeness, self-expression, and health. You’re invited to reach out to our guest if you’d like to know more: Kathy (at) DRKathyJordan.com.

Kathy’s Coaching Suggestion

What If You Reframed a Problem as a Creative Dilemma?
Creative dilemmas arise out of a tension between the current state of our lives and a sense that things can be better or different.  Creative Dilemmas are sources of innovative breakthroughs in art as well as in life.  Without them the history of art would be a series of boring reproductions rather than lively bursts of expressive originality.  Our lives, too, would take on the familiar but boring patina of repetition if it were not for the uncomfortable but necessary tensions that give rise to our creative dilemmas.  When we understand creative dilemmas as the entry point into the creative process, we are more likely to face them for what they are, even welcome them, as unsettling as they may be, as opportunities for personal growth and reinvention.

Think of yourself or a client at the threshold of change.   How could you or your client benefit from reframing a current challenge as a creative dilemma?

Kathy’s Quote for the Day

“I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life, and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”  ~Georgia O’Keeffe
