Time To Set A World Record
As I mentioned in my previous post Improvisation Yields Creativity, I am in the final stretch of finishing up my MBA at the University of St. Thomas. My final project is titled “The Final Totem.” The assignment as described in the syllabus:
The final totem represents your integration of course material and your interpretation and demonstrated understanding of the creative process. The final totem should be something symbolic of your unique creative process. In other words, how you get from a blank canvas to a creative idea to the execution of that creative idea.
My final totem? Setting a world record and getting it in to the Guinness Book of World Records. You know, the usual. Seriously though. Based on a quick browse through the Guinness World Records website, it seems as though the “Science and Technology” category could use some love.
I don’t know which exact world record we will be setting. But I know I can’t do it on my own. The first thing we need to do is identify which record we want to set. This is where YOU come into play. If you leave one idea in the comments section below, you’ll automatically be entered into a drawing for a $25 Caribou Coffee (Starbucks if there's not a 'Bou near you) gift card. If your idea is selected, I’ll send you a $50 Best Buy gift card. I will then facilitate setting the world record and more than likely enlist your help in making it happen.
There are only two requirements for all submitted ideas:
- The record will be set on Twitter, my blog and / or your blog.
- Our Twitter and blog followers will be enlisted to help us set the record.
When submitting your idea(s), please include a one-paragraph description. Up to three ideas can be submitted per person. All ideas must be submitted by midnight central time on Friday, December 3rd. The drawing and selected winner of the final idea will be announced on Monday, December 6th. Gift cards will be purchased and shipped no later than Friday, December 17th.
What world record do you think we should set?
