Quotes by Adam Grant

  • “Originals are nonconformists, people who not only have new ideas but take action to champion them. They are people who stand out and speak up. Originals drive creativity and change in the world. They’re the people you want to bet on.”

  • “If you want to be a generous giver, you have to watch out for selfish takers.”

  • “When takers talk about mistakes, they’re usually quick to place the blame on other people. Givers are more likely to say ‘Here’s the mistake I made; I learned the following from it. Here are the steps I’m taking to make sure I don’t let people down in the future.”

  • “Procrastination gives you time to consider divergent ideas, to think in nonlinear ways, to make unexpected leaps.”

  • “The most promising ideas begin from novelty and then add familiarity.”
