Creativity: Kevin Carroll’s Rules of the Red Rubber Ball

Sunday, October 8th, 2006

As I promised in the post regarding “The Six Myths of Creativity”, here is a book on creativity I have really enjoyed: “Rules of the Red Rubber Ball: Find and Sustain Your Life’s Work” by Kevin Carroll, where seven rules for Creativity are introduced:

  1. Commit to it
  2. Seek out encouragers
  3. Work out your creative muscle
  4. Prepare to shine
  5. Speak up
  6. Expect the unexpected
  7. Maximize the day

Additionally, Kevin Carroll acts as speaker in many conferences, like the one I was lucky to attend last year in Bilbao during the e-Business Global Conference 2005, where he shows the audience how to “DREAM” for success by being Dedicated, Responsible, Educated, by having the proper Attitude and by being Motivated. If you have the opportunity to attend one of his conferences, I really encourage you to do so. Alternately you can watch him in any of the videos available on his web page, but I’m afraid that attending to a conference is the only way to get a DREAM rubber band as the one I got ;-) :
