Frans Johansson explains that most tales of success begin with chapters full of failure, disappointment and frustration. It’s those who experiment, persevere and adjust who ultimately win the day. Johansson’s delivery is a bit scattered and confusing, but he’s enthusiastic and raises salient points. He cites examples of great ideas brought to completion, including the “burqini” (a burqa-type swimsuit), Muhammad Yunus’s Grameen Bank and the ice hotel tourist attraction in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. If you think you have a breakthrough idea that will leave your mark on the world, getAbstract recommends that you watch this presentation and then think of some more.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why the best ideas are those that make common sense,
- Why failure usually precedes success and
- How to bring great ideas to fruition.
