5 Career Lessons From Han Solo (According to Forbes)

December 04, 2016

It’s amazing how many important lessons have been learned from the most unlikely of sources. A college calligraphy class inspired Steve Jobs to add beautiful fonts to the original Macintosh, a falling apple helped Sir Issac Newton formulate his Universal Law of Gravitation, and thanks to a hilarious and insightful video from Forbes we now know 5 career lessons we’ve picked up from none other than Star Wars fan-favorite, Han Solo.

While it’s easy to get caught up in the princess saving (and being saved by), sexy black vest, and cool one liners, we finally have the chance to see Han Solo as the shrewd, intelligent, success minded founder and CEO that he’s always been under the surface. Forbes shows us how Han deals with everything from team building to distractions, and how his methods are valid whether you’re here or in a galaxy far far away.

With Harrison Ford making his return to the role after a 30 year absence, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens shaping up the biggest movie release of the millennium (pun intended), now is the perfect opportunity to take note of all the positive things we can learn from fiction and popular culture while spending time with our loved ones this holiday season. Check out 5 Career Lessons from Han Solo on Forbes here.
