I’ve been re-reading Adam Grant’s book, Originals for the third time and this time, focusing on increasing output and not increasing quality. Sounds backwards doesn’t it? Most people I’ve worked with in the past want to create brilliant work but what Adam points out is, even geniuses like da Vinci had higher incidences of “brilliant work” because they were prolific creators. The more you create, the higher the chance that your output creates brilliant work.

Many individuals I’ve worked with in the past want to create work that impresses. They spend so much time on trying to get it perfect that they actually produce anything.

If you haven’t yet read Originals yet then please get a copy. There are several other observations within it that can lead to some tremendous breakthroughs.
