Surprising habits of original thinkers

How do creative people come up with great ideas? Psychologist Adam Grant studies “originals”: thinkers who dream up new ideas and take action to put them into the world. In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals — including embracing failure. “The greatest originals are the ones who fail the most because they’re the people who try the most,” Grant says. “You need a lot of bad ideas to get a few good ones.”

Do watch this 3-minute summarized talk by Adam Grant. And later you may want to check out his book ‘Originals.’
