What does physics still have left to answer?

This question is intentionally broad, but why aren’t we done with physics, why is it when we live in a world where we have enough knowledge of physics to get us through day to day life, we still push to learn more? Elon Musk famously only employs engineers and not physicists because he thinks thatContinue reading “What does physics still have left to answer?”

SHOULD YOU BE YOUR OWN BIGGEST CRITIC?

Are you stuck in a constant cycle of self-criticism, overthinking, and generally feeling a little bit crap about yourself? You have got to be your own motivation, but it’s easy to take that to the unhealthy extreme. I know I do it all the time, I finish at the gym, I look in the mirror,Continue reading “SHOULD YOU BE YOUR OWN BIGGEST CRITIC?”

WHY DO WE KNOW MORE ABOUT SPACE THAN WE DO ABOUT OUR OWN OCEANS?

Pressure. Thanks for reading.  But in all seriousness, our planet Earth has a diameter of about 12,500 kilometres (12,742km to be exact), which gives it a radius of approximately 6,250 kilometres, we know it’s roughly spherical (if you believe otherwise then that argument can wait for another post) and anybody who studied maths in school canContinue reading “WHY DO WE KNOW MORE ABOUT SPACE THAN WE DO ABOUT OUR OWN OCEANS?”

Social Anxiety and Me

I went through cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) over the course of five months to treat social anxiety disorder. And although I’m not a therapist, or a qualified mental health professional, I do think there’s always some value in sharing an experience, and so that’s why I’m writing this. For a bit of backstory, I wasContinue reading “Social Anxiety and Me”

RESILIENCE

The inspiration for this post comes from a very powerful, and very moving, TED talk I was watching from Lucy Hone, she is a very influential lady who is a lot more qualified than I am to call herself an expert on resilience, she’s gained the right to that title by not only dedicated yearsContinue reading “RESILIENCE”

THE DICHOTOMY OF CONTROL

The dichotomy of control is a term used by the Greco-Roman Stoic philosophers, and it means ‘to understand the difference between what you can, and what you can’t control.’ Which at first might seem obvious, but there are actually a lot more things that are outside of your control than you might first thing, andContinue reading “THE DICHOTOMY OF CONTROL”

Make Yourself Memorable

What do you want to be remembered for? In 10, 20, 30, 100 years’ time, what are people going to think about when they hear your name? Have you built yourself a legacy? In my opinion, if you have a goal, or a passion, or even just an idea you’re unsure about, you owe itContinue reading “Make Yourself Memorable”

The Modern Stoic

Modern life is stressful, there’s an abundance of information and opportunity available, and it can often times be difficult to trowel through all of the distraction and focus on the things we should; sometimes there’s even that much of an overload of possibility, it’s overwhelming trying to make a decision about what matters to you and whatContinue reading “The Modern Stoic”

CONFIDENCE

Confidence is something all of us are familiar with, we hear it on a day to day basis, it’s something that goes through our mind during every social interaction we have, and rightly so. Confidence is, in my opinion, the single most important skill any human can have. A majority of people will have heardContinue reading “CONFIDENCE”
