Adam Grant | 3 Surprising habits of Original Thinkers (Short Summary)

In this short edited version of Adam Grant's TED talk, we focus on his three key takeaways about Original Thinkers:

1. Original thinkers are late to the game
-They tend to procrastinate, this allows for more time to consider many different possibilities. Some call it procrastinating, others may call it thinking
-They are late to the game, but they finish strong. Look at companies like Google - they did not have the first mover advantage, but they were different and better than the original (Yahoo! etc.)


2. They have doubts and fears
-Original thinkers have doubts like the rest of us. Just they handle it differently. They doubt their ideas, not themselves. They say Maybe this idea doesn't work, let's think of another one and not Maybe I'm not good enough
-They have fears just like the rest of us, but they are more scared of NOT doing something more than anything. The things we regret the most are the chances not taken

3. They act on a LOT of ideas. The sheer number of ideas put into play provides you with a large amount of variety to pick the best from the bunch

Adam's Bio

After years of studying the dynamics of success and productivity in the workplace, Adam Grant discovered a powerful and often overlooked motivator: helping others.
Why you should listen
In his groundbreaking book Give and Take, top-rated Wharton professor Adam Grant upended decades of conventional motivational thinking with the thesis that giving unselfishly to colleagues or clients can lead to one’s own long-term success. Grant’s research has led hundreds of advice seekers (and HR departments) to his doorstep, and it’s changing the way leaders view their workforces.

Grant’s new book Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World examines how unconventional thinkers overturn the status quo and champion game-changing ideas.

What others say
“For Grant, helping is not the enemy of productivity, a time-sapping diversion from the actual work at hand; it is the mother lode, the motivator that spurs increased productivity and creativity.” — New York Times Magazine, March 27, 2013

Sheryl Sandberg, Malala Yousafzai & Adam Grant: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience & Finding Joy

Want to join the debate? Check out the Intelligence Squared website to hear about future live events and podcasts:
__________________________

‘I learned about the depths of sadness and the brutality of loss. But I also learned that when life sucks you under, you can kick against the bottom, break the surface and breathe again.’ – Sheryl Sandberg

Sheryl Sandberg is the COO at Facebook and international bestselling author of 'Lean In'. In 2015 disaster struck when her husband, Dave Goldberg, died suddenly at the age of 47. Sheryl and her two young children were devastated, and she was certain that their lives would never have real joy or meaning again. Just weeks later, Sandberg was talking with a friend about the first father-child activity without a father. They came up with a plan for someone to fill in. ‘But I want Dave,’ she cried. Her friend put his arm around her and said, ‘Option A is not available. So let’s just kick the shit out of Option B.’

Everyone experiences some form of Option B. We all deal with loss: jobs lost, loves lost, lives lost. The question is not whether these things will happen but how we face them when they do. Sandberg’s new book, 'Option B', weaves her experiences of coping with adversity with new findings from her co-author, the award-winning psychologist Adam Grant, and other social scientists. The book features stories of people who recovered from personal and professional hardship, including illness, injury, divorce, job loss, sexual assault and imprisonment. These people did more than recover – many of them became stronger.

In this special Intelligence Squared event on June 24th, Sandberg was joined by Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot by the Taliban for speaking up for women’s education. She refused to be silenced, and her recovery, bravery and stoicism have made her an international role model. In 2014 she became the youngest ever winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Sandberg and Yousafzai, in conversation with Grant, will explore how even after the most devastating events, we can learn to find deeper meaning and appreciation in our lives and rediscover joy. They will discuss how we can help others in crisis, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to our everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead.
