Another “Super Favorite” New Book

Was just given to me at the event in Chantilly. A HUGE thank you to Jennafer Sizemore! I am so in love with Rules of the Red Rubber Ball, by Kevin Carroll. You simply must get this little book — it is so totally inspiring.

My book quote for today is by James Michener (another amazing author) but it opens Kevin’s book.

The master in the ART of living makes little distinction between his work and his PLAY, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion.

He hardly knows which is which.

He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is WORKING or PLAYING.

To him he’s always doing both.

see, Wow!

Now, if you have three additional minutes, watch this – more great quotes from great minds.

and do whatever it takes tonight to feel inspired — Ok?

p.s. I posted some thoughts on people "behind the scenes" over at the Studio Blog.


  1. Love this book. Kevin worked at Nike (might still) when I worked there and he read this book during my daughter’s pre-school graduation. As you can imagine he is VERY charismatic and engaging. I love that you are spreading the word on this book. It is so good.

  2. It sounds interesting.. a must read!

  3. Thanks, Stacy, for sharing the ‘quotes’ video. Very inspiring. :)

  4. I can’t believe it!! I just started reading this amazing little book a few days ago, and now I’m seeing it on your blog.Very cool, I must say.

  5. Stacy, I was fortunate to attend one of Kevin’s seminars during a company meeting in Dallas last summer. He was so engaging and everyone was just buzzing at the end. Very motivating, very engaging. We received a copy of his book afterwards and I read it in less than 30 mins and loved it.

    Hello Miss Stacy! I am so happy to have gotten to meet you at CHA on the first day. You were walking and that is exactly what I said “hello Miss Stacy!”. You came over and gave me a huge teddy bear hug. You were sooo nice to me. Thank you for being such a good inspiration to me. Luv your book and will go and get the new one. Have a great day!

  7. Denise Morris says:

    Thank you Stacy. I watched the Great Quotes movie and I needed those quotes so very much today. You have no idea just how much. Today has been a day where inspiration has been just beyond reach. Thank you for leaving the link that pushed that inspiration a little more in my direction.
    Thank you.

  8. I am glad you enjoyed it and hope you are having fun chasing your red rubber ball!!

  9. Oh man that looks like a good one.

  10. Here’s a fun little story- I had read KC’s quote on the side of a Starbucks cup awhile ago and posted some blurb about it’s inspirational statemnt to teachers on my blog. I think his people might have googled his name or something and happened upon it. I think they were so excited about the buzz that was being created, that KC actually sent me one of his red rubber ball books signed with a fun message inside. It was really cool that he made personal connections with his readers :)

  11. Looks like an interesting book. It’s now on my list for reading in the future.

  12. i love when you tell me about cool books. I’ve been pouring over Susan Sargent’s color books lately and just LOVE looking through them. Reading them is also a very good thing- she’s so inspiring (just like you!).
    thanks Stacy
