Originals - Adam Grant

This quote was added by msd1311
We lose creativity in the pressure to achieve (traditional) success and in overwhelming fear of failure. To appear creative we find surface ways of appearing original like donning a bright red jacket and embracing weird fashion and justifying its appeal. There are so few originals in life because people are afraid to speak up and stand out.
