What's the difference between people who come up with an original idea and turn it into a reality vs. those that have an idea and walk away from it? Adam Grant studies the dynamics of success and productivity. In his TedTalk addresses what it means to be an original thinker. Originals drive creativity and change. They not only dream up new ideas but they activate a plan and make them reality.
What are the habits of Originals? They are moderate procrastinators that allow the time and space for the best version of an idea. They are open to failure. In fact, they welcome it because in their failures they find the spark of improvisation and creativity.
They are not self-doubting. They are idea-doubting which ignites refining, reshaping, and testing. According to Grant Originals, "take initiative to doubt the default and look for a better option." And, they won't stop until they find it. Determination and resilience.
Find motivation by doubting your ideas. Take your failures and turn them into success. Don't just have an idea but tackle it with abandon, even when you might fail. Because our biggest regrets are our inactions not our actions.
