Het project: Een verfrissende online cursus ontwikkelen over bovenstaand thema
Project status: It’s a wrap!
VOLG WAT JE RAAKT – de online cursus die je nieuwsgieriger laat kijken, creatiever laat denken en daadkrachtiger laat doen. Wat dat je oplevert? Dat je vrijer, zekerder, met meer plezier en minder oordeel in het leven staat en keuzes maakt die bij jou passen.
Sinds 1 april 2019 staat hij online – de eerste les volg je gratis!
P.S. Hieronder kun je zien hoe het begon, ergens zo rond 2016. Toen nog naar een idee van partner in crime en creatief brein Babet Reinders, die in 2018 besloot PROJECT96 te verlaten (over dat besluit schreef ze een blog: “On taking the right exit”). De opzet van de huidige cursus is totaal anders; de intentie is echter onveranderd.
It’s not always easy to follow your own path. It definitely means using earplugs on a regular basis, at times others tell you that you are about to take a wrong exit. But it also means keeping in mind that joy should be the dominant factor in the inevitable process: what sometimes seems a bumpy ride actually is one blissful adventure.
Speaking of which: we are in the middle of such a process ourselves right now, designing an e-course that will support you along your way. The course will be built on four pillars as returning reference points to keep you on track: curiosity, creativity, courage and confidence.
Curiosity makes your mind active and observant of new ideas.
Curiosity is a way to inspiration. It makes your mind active and observant of new ideas. Living a curiosity based life means being open minded and refusing to immediately label things as boring. That way, even trivial events in a day to day routine, on a drowsy, rainy Monday, can get you curious. If you have the courage to open all your senses and dare to answer the lure of curiosity, your own curiosity, you may very well unexpectedly encounter a group of likeminded people that will encourage you to pursue your own journey. Don’t worry if you temporarily seem to lose interest, though. Curiosity never dies, you can always trigger it again.
Creativity will show you mind-blowing solutions to problems and it will come up with opportunities for next steps within reach.
Creativity and curiosity are partners in crime. So once you’ve invited curiosity in, it will be only a matter of time before creativity arrives.
You see, creativity is not a skill that can be exclusively claimed by artists. Being creative means having the guts to do what it is that intrinsically lights your fire without being judgmental about the final result. Doing so, creativity will show you mind-blowing solutions to problems and it will come up with opportunities for next steps within reach. The one thing creativity then needs to flourish is action, your action.
Courage gets you started without even being ready and confidence helps you to do things with pride and self-love.
To take action both courage and confidence are required. Courage has the ability to get you started without even being ready and confidence helps you to do things with pride and self-love. Found, built and put to good use, courage and confidence will take the outcome of your curiosity and creativity to another level than the mere level of ideas. They will make sure you’ll never have to regret not taking action. Courage and confidence will let you fiercely walk your own trail.
Built on our four pillars, the e-course shows you how to follow your own path and encourages you to start doing without holding back. It may still take a while before we launch this e-course, though; we’re in the middle of the process, remember?! The good thing, however, is that in the meantime we will put refreshing links right here. Teasers. To make sure that if you are eager to carve your own path, there will be no excuse not to do so. Enjoy your bumpy ride!
