Slowing down can help us to be more creative. It took Leonardo da Vinci 16 years to paint the Mona Lisa! @AdamMGrant 's wonderful book Originals shows that people who come up with great new ideas often start quickly, but finish slowly.      source

Originals IS an Original. From the 1st chapter itself, @AdamMGrant is on a mission - to inform, educate, de-construct, de-mystify & inspire the reader I luv books that r fact-filled, anecdotal 2 the brim, which explain concepts by examples. This book does that! (Review in pic)      source
