INSIGHT 1 : Procrastination Is Not a Bad Thing

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.

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.

INSIGHT 3 : Trying New Fields Is Important.

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

So Nobel Prize winners are usually involved in:

  • music
  • Art

People with varied interests in a wider range of creative endeavors can see things from different angles.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

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!

Ghazala Begum
