4. Originals: How Non-Conformists Shape the World
The concept behind this book fits perfectly into the idea shaped by modern technology: new thinking is what changes the world and moves it forward. Haven’t you noticed that the most successful tech products (like apps) right now are those that ignored “tradition”?
Facebook was the world’s leading–and, largely, only–social media. Instagram could have conformed to that idea but it didn’t. Now Instagram is flourishing, considered the much more young, cool, and lasting of the two.
And one day something will come along that dethrones Instagram. It’ll think totally new, it’ll refuse to conform to current norms. That’s technological progress!
Read this book for information on how to think outside the box. How to think originally, both in business ideas and business practices, strategies, and methods.
Author: Adam Grant
