Think like a Rocket Scientist

by Ozan Varol


Problem solving and critical thinking goes way beyond what they teach you in math class. You don't need to be a rocket scientist, but knowing how to solve problems can be hugely beneficial for your relationships, business ventures, and health.

Ozan Varol is a trained rocket scientist who worked for NASA, before retraining to become a lawyer. In Think Like a Rocket Scientist: Simple Strategies You Can Use to Make Giant Leaps in Work and Life, Varol shows us the value of thinking outside the box to reimagine the status quo.

Favorite quote

If you stick to the familiar, you won't find the unexpected. Those who get ahead in this century will dance with the great unknown and, rather than comfort, will find danger in the status quo.
