There are dreamers who come up with great ideas and there are doers.  Originals are people who do both, but not always on time according to Professor Adam Grant who teaches at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. 

He looks at the unexpected habits of original thinkers including embracing failure and procrastination.  His new book is called Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World.

He talks to Jesse about the mythology of success,  the habits of original thinkers and how we can all be more creative.
