Reading Think Wrong, or as its secondary title says, How to Conquer the Status Quo and Do Work That Matters, was a game-changer for me. It’s such a phenomenal book that focuses on helping you think and act outside the box. It has several authors, who are all amazing and talented innovators in their field.
They offer some fantastic ideas that will get anyone engaged and ready to take an active part in a re-thinking strategy.
The book is an interesting and motivating guide that presents practical instructions for applying problem-solving skills to various challenges, often encouraging you to let go of the norms and traditional working manners.
Think Wrong shows us how to challenge our current thinking models and look at problems from a different perspective. I really enjoyed reading it because of its unique structure and the way it was written.
It’s short and easy to read; it offers a clear and simple approach based on action. In addition, there are exercises for better communication, finding the right focus point, and innovative language and tools to help you change your Status Quo.
The book also contains a lot of funny anecdotes that show real-life examples of successful companies that applied the ‘thinking wrong’ method and completely changed their way of doing business afterwards.
I would recommend this book to anyone who aspires to become an entrepreneur because to have an entrepreneurial mindset, you need to ‘think wrong’ and experiment.
