If Adam Grant’s “Originals” were to be defined in 3 words: “fools rush in” would make the cut.

He reveals through research that there are several myths around what it takes to succeed.

Some such myths:
– First movers have the first-to-market advantage. In reality, people who enter later, lower their risk of failure.

– Genius triumphs in youth. Older wisdom does have value and results, especially in the wealth of accumulated insights.

– Procrastination is a recipe for disaster. Procrastination may be the measured recipe for provoking more creative output.

Adam’s studies span across business, politics, sports and entertainment to give a set of brilliant infights about rejecting conformity.
