A Big Thinker Who Encourages You to Nurture Those Crazy Ideas of Yours

Safi Bahcall is a second-generation physicist (the son of two astrophysicists) who sees and thinks about the world very differently from most people.

Safi coined the term “loonshot,” “A neglected project, widely dismissed, its champion written off as unhinged.”

His book, Loonshots: How to Nurture the Crazy Ideas That Win Wars, Cure Diseases, and Transform Industries, has been recommended by Bill Gates, Daniel Kahneman, Malcom Gladwell, Tim Ferriss and more.

To get a sense of Safi’s thinking, read his blog post “The Five Laws of Loonshots”, or listen to his most recent interview with Tim Ferriss.

Safi’s work reminds me of Mandela’s statement, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” If you have the idea, YOU are the one to do it. So get to work!
