Adam Grant: Success and Originality

*) Forbes Book Review: ‘Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World’:

“Grant also debunks the perception that innovators are blazing in their willingness to throw everything away in pursuit of their vision. “We can only imagine how many Wozniaks, Michelangelos and [Martin Luther] Kings never pursued, publicized, or promoted their original ideas because they were never dragged or catapulted into the spotlight.”

In what will be a much loved section, Grant points out that procrastination often triggers the most creative and productive results. It seems that the brain wants to process the problem right up to the deadline. King’s I Have a Dream speech, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and various other examples elucidate the phenomenon.”
