To the ambitious ones of you who strive to let everything fall by the wayside that doesn’t directly lead to your goal or success: Nobel prize winners do the opposite. They are significantly more likely to engage with the arts than their fellow scientists. For example they are 12 times more likely to engage in creative writing, such as fiction or non-fiction books and 22 times more likely to have trained as actors or magicians than their fellow non winning scientists. True the arts alone don’t make a scientist a prize winner but there is definitely a strong relationship.

Thanks again Adam Grant, author of the book Originals.
