本书金句 Key insights

● Putting new ideas out there requires courage and the determination not to back down when you want change to happen. The first step toward becoming an original is overcoming your fear of taking action and standing up for your own ideas.

● Leaving stuff to the last minute makes us more creative by forcing us to improvise.

● Start by being open about the shortcomings of your projects; this will surprise your audience and show them that you’re an honest person regardless of the situation.

● Repeating yourself will give others time to warm up to your ideas. Research shows that exposing people to new ideas more often will make them more receptive over time. So, speak up and repeat yourself!

● It’s not enough simply to have creative ideas – you have to know how to find the right supporters and collaborators to make them a reality.
