Well worth listening to

Re: Creativity
I always learn something and/or are reminded of something important that I have forgotten to emphasize in my life. And it’s entertaining; not a boring lecture style at all! Ricky’s voice is easy on the ears too.

5.005 What Will It Take?

Enjoying these e2k Podcasts! When I heard Paul Schultz say that he “believed everyone is creative, it’s a matter of believing you are,” I thought “I could never do what Paul and Ricky do.” As if reading my mind, the next thing I heard Ricky and Paul say was that a lot of people tell them they aren't creative, and couldn't do what they do. When I took Paul’s suggestion to look for clues as to what “my creative side” may be, I realized that its one I've developed through my profession as an attorney, which is writing and public speaking. I've never looked at drafting oral arguments by way of legal motions/memorandum/briefs, and then presenting them at oral arguments through a hearing or trial was creative. However, when I looked at it through the lens painted by Ricky and Paul in Episode 5.005, I saw that the ability to sway a judge or jury’s pre-disposed beliefs and opinions to your client’s favor, is indeed creative. Also, I could not agree more about writing your ideas down!!! Many times I’ve thought of a better way to present an argument, or analyze a relevant issue, and because I didn’t write it down, I’ve lost these great ideas. Now, when a great idea arises, I dictate it through a hand held recorder or a smart phone.

Thank you Paul Schultz for your insight and keep up the great work Ricky!!

Ignites my creative juices!

I’ve been loving the E2K podcast! Rick interviews people from a variety of backgrounds and careers and talks with them about how their creativity impacts their lives. I love listening to this because it stirs my creativity about my own life. Even if the subject’s career or life doesn’t seem to have much in common with mine, Rick does a great job pulling out interesting and clever angles that are inspiring. I can’t wait to hear what’s next!
