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
