Adam Grant Is an American psychologist and writer currently a professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
In this book, He uses true stories and examples of how Successful Innovators, or Originals Succeeded and Failed.
in this book also we can learn how to think originally / how to increase the potential within us.
There are a lot of Genius Moments in this book that stem from procrastination.
For example: Words "I Have a Dream" by Martin Luther King This is actually the result of Improvisation.
The reason is that Martin Luther King was not that ready write his speech the night before and because of that Martin Luther King was more open to new ideas.
According to Adam Grant, the more ideas we produce, the more likely it is to improve the quality of our ideas.
QUANTITY & QUALITY Equally important
Thing This is supported by research from psychology which found that individuals who are considered "creative" generally do not always produce better and better ideas, But they generate MORE IDEAS than any other.
Because they have a lot of ideas then the chances are higher for them to develop Brilliant Ideas.
An example from Pablo Picasso's book,Which is famous for some of his works of art, but not many know that his portfolio is actually thousands of statues, paintings, which are tens of thousands.
So, his many works finally gave birth to quality ideas that propelled him to success. So we shouldn't just focus on a few quality ideas,Instead we should generate as many ideas as possible.
There is one major study discussed in his book in which they compared Nobel Prize-winning scientists from 1901 to 2005 with their peers who are equally accomplished but didn't win the nobel prize
So this study
Trying to identify some of the skills/traits/approaches that differentiate Nobel laureates and what take their work to the next level?
But what really makes the difference is the tendency of scientists to try other fields

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
