It’s been 12 years since I worked at the Gap headquarters in San Francisco. And every week I use the analytical skills I learned while I was an analyst there.

It was empowering. It was like a new world opened up for me.

Being analytical isn’t about numbers-it’s about developing healthy skepticism and curiosity.

Keep validating or invalidating your hypothesis so you get closer to the truth.
