Change is hard.

We’ve all heard this.

We all know it to be true.

Instinctively and experientially

But why - is there a scientific reason behind it?

And how can we use that knowledge to help us achieve our goals?

“It’s April 2020, and the world is in the grip of a terrible viral pandemic”

We’ve all been asked to stay at home to flatten the curve and save lives.

The race is on to find a vaccine or a treatment for Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2)

Meanwhile, one of the most pressing problems we’ve seen across the globe is the shortage of ventilators for the most vulnerable and critically ill patients.

I heard some acquaintances from the tech meetup scene in Dublin had founded a group with the intention of building emergency use ventilators using 3D printing and open-source hardware.

The High Probability Route to Becoming a Millionaire

Warren Buffett, the so-called Oracle of Omaha is a man who needs no introduction.

He is considered one of the most successful investors in the world and has a net worth of $82.5 billion, making him the third-wealthiest person in the world.

He amassed this fortune by perfecting the value investment philosophy pioneered by his former teacher Benjamin Graham. At its core this involves studying very deeply the annual reports of companies and picking stocks that appear undervalued but, crucially have real potential and pay dividends.

Buffett would…

“ Myths which are believed in tend to become true.”

Neuromyth — A commonly-held false belief about how the mind and brain function.


The term “neuromyths” was first coined by an OECD report on understanding the brain. The term refers to the translation of scientific findings into misinformation regarding education.

Once these myths take hold in the public consciousness, it’s often difficult for people to separate brain facts from fiction.

Separating Fact from Fiction

Let’s examine some of these myths more deeply.

The use of neuroscience in education is very young, relatively speaking. …

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

Mahatma Gandhi


We are all learning machines. The process of evolution has dictated that we are programmed from the very moment we are born to be curious about the world around us. To learn from our mistakes. To seek pleasure and avoid pain.

It’s Darwinian Theory in it’s most pure form.

When we pursue and attain rewards, special pathways in our brain become activated and this leads us to seek out more rewarding stimuli in a phenomenon which is known as reinforcement.

If you are a software engineer looking to get started with developing on the Ethereum blockchain, it can be overwhelming at the outset to understand all the tools and technologies available to use today.

From decentralized browsers and wallets to terms like Truffle, Ganache, Infura, Parity and Geth this can all be very confusing and act as an impediment to your nascent blockchain learning journey.

So I have decided to compile a guide which lists out the leading software tools and packages and give you a brief overview of the function of each.

Hopefully this will help give you a…

Understanding the key processes that drive your learning can help turbo-boost your career.

Introducing: The Software That Powers Your Brain

In the previous blog post, on the Neuroscience of Learning we explored the hardware infrastructure that runs your most important learning software — ie. the physiology of the Brain.

Now we move on to explore what could be described in some sense as the operating system:

An operating system is computer software that manages hardware and resources. It acts as an intermediary between programs and the computer hardware.

Our brain…

Origin Story

  • We all know that every superhero has their own fascinating origin story. From how Bruce Wayne saw his parents being murdered before becoming Batman to how Peter Parker got bitten by a radioactive spider and gained the superpowers that helped turn him into your friendly neighbourhood web-slinging Spiderman.
  • The blockchain is no different. It is undoubtably an ingenious invention, first conceptualized in it’s entirety…
