First and foremost, Adam Grant’s ‘Originals’ was a thought-provoking read for me that tells the story of originality as it affects entrepreneurship and business; creativity and innovations. The book cuts across all aspects of life, work, leadership, relationships, parenting and personal growth of which I personally gained alot.

One particular belief the writer debunked was that successful entrepreneurs were careful and calculated risk-takers and not just great risk-takers.
Without reading this book, I would never had known that Bill Gates took a “leave of absence” from Harvard instead of just dropping out (which is what majority think). That was his “Plan B” just in case Microsoft didn’t work out.

He also stated that procastination in itself wasn’t totally bad but it needed to be done strategically to achieve result.

He further offered the theory that failure can be just as beneficial as success and that fear of failure may cause individuals and companies from taking risks necessary to move forward.

Although I enjoyed the awesome ideas in the book, I didn’t enjoy the writing style. The book had too many ideas and arguments which were not coherently stated and at some point the latter chapters (5-8) appeared choppy and disjointed from the plot.

But asides that, the book has redefined my thinking game and I’m grateful to @Nonso_Azike for sharing such a beautiful piece.

Hmmmm.

Oh wow! Always have back up plans! Noted.

This :ok_hand:t5:!!! When I don’t feel the energy to do things people think I’m lazy or procrastinating, but I go with my vibe, working with time and season!

Thanks @Kachie for taking time to summarize the book. You know u’re a darling :kissing_heart: I would definitely take time to read it
