Organizational psychologist Adam Grant believes that “originals,” the unconventional thinkers who drive radical change, don’t behave as you would expect. In fact, he’s isolated three startling traits that originals share: They procrastinate, they experience self-doubt and fear, and they have lots of bad ideas. getAbstract praises Grant’s unconventional view on how these seemingly negative tendencies spur innovation.
In this summary, you will learn
- What three habits original thinkers share,
- Why moderate procrastinators are most creative,
- Why “idea doubt” can drive original thinkers to improve their concepts, and
- How failure and bad ideas can lead to success.
