My daily brainfood for today is Adam Grant’s Ted talk: The surprising habits of original thinkers:
- The first mover advantage is a myth. You don’t have to be first to innovate. You just have to be different and better.
- My mantra “I will not doubt, nor will I fear” could be one of an original thinker. Original thinkers have lot’s of doubts and fears, however, you should focus on “idea doubt”, not “self doubt”.
- Doubt the default and look for better options. Don’t let go of the doubt but look for “vuja de” – seeing something well-known in fresh light.
