Adam, Parker, MLK discussed on Ted Radio Hour

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Quite solved the end adam says this is why truly original ideas are quick to start but slow to finish they take time and the people behind those ideas often have a lot of doubts and often a backup plan in case the original idea doesn't work out and this is what i miss with worry parker they had backup plans lined up and that made needs out that they had the courage to be original now on the surface a lot of original people the coffin it behind the scenes they feel the same fear doubt that the rest of us do they just managed it differently now in my research i discovered there are two different kinds of doubt their selfdoubt an idea that selfdoubt is paralysing it leads you to freeze but idea doubt as energizing it motivates you to test to experiment refine just like mlk did instead of thing i'm crap you say the first few drafts are always crap and i'm just not there yet so how do you get there was about being the kind of person who takes the initiative to doubt the default and look for a better option and if you do that well you won't open yourself out to the opposite of dejavu there is a name for it it's called volusia day volusia days when you look at something you've seen many times before and all of a sudden see it with fresh eyes it's a screenwriter who looks at a movie script they can't get the green light for more than half a century in every pass aversion the main character has been an evil queen but jennifer lea starts to question whether that makes sense she rewrite the first act reinvents the villain as a tortured hero and frozen becomes the most successful animated movie ever so there's a simple message from the story when you feel doubt don't let it go what about fear originals feel fear to they're afraid of failing but what sets him apart from the rest of us is that they are even more afraid of failing to try they know you can fail by starting a business it goes bankrupt or by failing to start a business at all they know that in the long run our biggest regrets are not our actions but are in actions the things we wish we could reduce if you look at the science are there chances not taken.
