Malcom Gladwell dedica artigos imensos e livros inteiros a essas questões e sobre como ganhar dinheiro com suas respostas. Grande idéia.
Em uma entrevista ao site Goodreads por ocasião do lançamento de seu novo livro, Gladwell fala de suas idéias sobre
Onde encontrar idéias:
The one thing I learned from all my years at The Washington Post is how social reporting is. It is really about talking to people, having people tell you things. That will always be the most efficient and useful way of finding out new and interesting things. You have to expose yourself to as many interesting people as you can. There’s no shortcut for that kind of process.
Se ser bem sucedido em algo depende de começar a fazer esse algo cedo na vida:
(…)you will only reach a level of mastery if you are willing to devote essentially 10 years to a particular discipline. There’s nothing special about when you devote those 10 years. Those 10 years can be between the ages of 40 and 50, or 60 and 70. It just so happens that many of us who achieve great things put in those 10 years early in life, but there’s nothing special about youth. Youth is not necessary for the process; what’s necessary is time and honest effort, which is heartening.
There’s no idea that can’t be explained to a thoughtful 14-year-old. If the thoughtful 14-year-old doesn’t get it, it is your fault, not the 14-year-old’s. I think that’s a very important fact. LINK
