The world will never be stable again, but in the new normal you will see more and more volatility. You can’t bank on certainties, you have to be an expert on managing uncertainties.

For his full talk on the new normal head over to YouTube.

Learning Python (from scratch)

Got some spare time during the day and thought I’d work on one of my first amibtions and that is learning Python. Why you may ask? Well I work in the world of data and the next set of skills I need to develop / work on, are R (for statistics) and Python. Once I’ve mastered these on an intermediate level (I think?) I can begin with Machine Learning and move on from there.

To start learning, I’ve acquired the book Automate the boring stuff with Python by Al Sweigart.

Will update you lot as things progress!

If you wanna hire great people and have them stay working for you, you have to let them make a lot of decisions and you have to be run by ideas not hierarchy. The best ideas have to win, otherwise good people don’t stay.
