If you've seen crime and forensic shows such as CSI, Law and Order, Bones, or NCIS, you'd probably have a strong understanding of what forensic science is. In short, a forensic scientist looks for answers in less obvious places. That is, that scientist looks for clues in places your average person wouldn't think of looking in.
As the show always ends, the forensic scientist finds ground-breaking clues in the most unusual places that leads to solving a crime.
In life, sometimes we need to act like forensic scientists by looking for answers in places no one else would look in. This is also called "thinking outside the box."
You see, when we have questions, we're taught to look in typical places. For instance, my mother struggled with high blood pressure for a while. Where did she go for answers? The doctor, of course! And as expected, the doctor prescribed medications.
But I had a hunch that her blood pressure was caused by something else -- and thankfully, another doctor had the same hunch and told her why her blood pressure was always high. She had "white coat syndrome" -- that is, she was nervous about having her blood pressure taken, which actually made her pressure high!
The doctor took her off the medications!
If you are searching for an answer:
If you ever had a toddler who lost something, you'd know that you can't just look in obvious places. You have to think like a child and look in all the places that child would care to go. Then you'd find that lost item in a place where only a PARENT would think of looking!
There is a better answer for you -- and that answer is in a less obvious place. Just open your eyes, think outside the box, and you'd be surprised at what you find!
