Professor Alec Couros: "The Connected Teacher"

The Secret of Malcolm Gladwell's Success

The Secret of Malcolm Gladwell's Success | Career-Life Development | Scoop.it

We have a tendency to think of greatness and success as synonymous, when in fact they’re only very loosely related. The fallacy is easy enough to understand through an evolutionary lens – great ideas that vanish into obscurity don’t propagate, and and on a very primal level we recognize (and fear) failure to propagate as failure of the most absolute kind. It carries the whiff of extinction.
