As author Kuan-lin Huang states in his book “Solve it Yourself: Fix the World’s Problems with Science” was inspired by all the doers, by those who roll up their sleeves to solve the world’s problems. He recognizes them for their persistent actions and uplifting spirit and collective energy.
What world problem might you be working on or wanting to solve? Have you ever given thought to our current world issues, and are you concerned about the impact it might have on you or others? If you are working on a problem or need to be inspired to take action, then “Solve it Yourself” is a book that will provide you with the tools to think through, and tackle a problem you have a passion for solving.
This book helps you find the root cause by learning how to ask questions. Kuan-lin uses thought-provoking questions and starts with the pandemic as his example. The current vaccine that was developed was the result of our scientific community coming together and sharing data about the spread of the virus. The 5 Why technique is a simple but effective way for you to keep asking “why” to get to the root cause of a problem?
Kuan-lin also suggests setting SMART goals, which stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. These SMART goals transform what seems to be difficult tasks into manageable habits. There are four steps in the SIY (Solve it Yourself) journey and they are: 1) Identify the Root Cause, 2) Own Your Responsibility, 3) Taking Proven Actions, 4) 10X Your Impact.
If you are someone who has a passion for solving a BIG problem and would like great advice on just how you might go about it, then you will want to read “Solve It Yourself”. This book is available in a Kindle version for 99 cents or in paperback, and all the proceeds go to the charity of your choice.
