You need to regularly update your knowledge by reading contents online and reading relevant books on trends in data science. Don't be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of data that is flying around the internet, you have to be able to know how to make sense of it all. Curiosity is one of the skills you need to succeed as a data scientist. For example, initially, you may not see much insight in the data you collected. Curiosity will enable you to sift through the data to find answers and more insights.On an other note, I also strongly believe that communication skills also plays a key role for a best Data Scientist because, organizations searching for a strong data scientist are looking for someone who can clearly and fluently translate their technical findings to a non-technical team, such as the Marketing or Sales departments.
