After launching hundreds of businesses—from airlines to trains, music to mobile, and now a spaceline—my biggest challenges and successes have come from convincing other people to see the world differently. This book reveals how that can be done and will help you inspire creativity and change.      source
Loved reading Adam Grant's book Originals. He has a talent for taking on big ideas about leadership and creativity and distilling them down so you can incorporate them into your daily life.      source
An urgent must read, a seminal work that will surprise you on every single page. Adam Grant has reset our expectations for what it means to be creative and what's required to make a difference. Share it with someone you care about.      source
Just finished @AdamMGrant's new book, Originals, and enjoyed the shit out of it. Highly recommend:      source
It can sometimes seem as if one must learn everything old before one can try anything new. Adam Grant does a masterful job showing that is not the case; we are lucky to have him as a guide.      source
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
Yes! Don’t focus on being right, focus on getting the right work done, fueled by empathy! PS desk-rocking two of my favorite books Originals by @AdamMGrant and When by @DanielPink      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
