Self Improvement


Some people experience continued anxiety in their work.

  • Anxiety could have underlying issues that twist how we view our progress at work. It is then important to speak to a therapist about it.
  • Anxiety can also result from the job not being a good fit, particularly if your concerns are growing.

However, some roles can take a year or two for you to become good at and even longer to master. It might be worthwhile to stick it out a while longer to see how things progress.

Self Improvement

Feeling unsettled at work

When we start a new job, we are often told to 'fake it 'til we make it.' However, we may continue to feel out of our depth. It may be because there are no clear indicators that measure our performance.

  • Rather than speculating if you measure up in your work, ask for feedback.
  • Ask what indicators your boss will look at to assess your performance.
  • You could also ask for more coaching where you are struggling the most.
3D Printing for Hearing Aids

3D Printing techonology has made it possible for hearing aid manufacturers to make custom made hearing aids and help accelerate the process of making them then fine-tuning the materials, ear shapes, and print the entire hearing aid.

At the moment, 3D printing is still too slow to be used for mass production but the technology for it is being developed and evolved.

The downside to this is that it has the potential to massively disrupt both the industries for manufacturing logistics and inventory management.

  • Medicine - used to customize implants and possibly organs and body parts in the future
  • Fashion - used to create prototypes of footwear
  • Construction - used to print materials needed to build homes in less than 48 hours for a fraction of the price and are stronger than regular cinder blocks
  • Car and aircraft - used to transform unibody and fuselage design and production and powertrain design and production.
3D Printing

Three-dimensional (3D) printing is an additive manufacturing process where a physical object is created from a digital design by printing thin layers of material and then fusing them together.

The Science of Social Media

Studying social media and its effects on people is extremely difficult to achieve because social media companies don't really share data with researchers. However, what we can tell you is that the science behind social media is broken and we should be open to the possibility of its effects may they be positive or negative.

For all, we know it could be just like the time studies proved that violent video games don't really cause real-world aggression.

Face-to-face bullying is a bigger issue for young people than cyber bullying but the latter is an issue that sucks the air out of the room when brought up.

We don't really get a full picture of what's happening on social media if we choose to decide to study cyberbullying in 2021 because of the walls placed by social media companies for their data.

As parents, you have the decision to either keep your child in the dark and leave them ill-equipped to deal with issues or help them learn about the pros and cons of having a social media account and have open arms to help and support them if they ever encounter an issue.

It's the same with riding a bike, you can end up hurt in the process but you can also learn to ride it properly. As parents, we need to keep the lines of communication open so that your child will be able to come to you.

It's dangerous to intervene with social media regulation policies both as policymakers and parents if you don't have the evidence to support your claims.

Even though your intervention is done out of goodwill, you might end up taking away someone's lifeline or their human right to play.

And if you already know it will happen, then there’s no pressure to avoid it.

Fail, fail often, and learn. Then you’ll be better equipped for the next attempt.

  • Beating inertia (resistance to change): Pick the middle ground between no change and drastic change.
  • Beating the resistance of others: Ask for their help and get them on your side, or negotiate a way for you to make change without disrupting their lives too much.
  • Finding the joy and keeping it alive: Doing something you hate is possible, for a little while, but you’ll never sustain it.
  • Celebrating the little victories: Every step along the path is a victory.
  • Making it a part of your life: To integrate change into your life, it must become a part of your daily routine.

Change can be a difficult thing. Most people want to change their lives, in some way, but find it difficult to either get started or to sustain the change for very long.

It can be incredibly difficult, or it can be wonderfully joyous.

Shunryu Suzuki

"Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer."

Absurdism allows the mind to consume unexplainable things. The kinds of things that we seek to experience can be found in a "sweet spot" between possessing recognizable patterns and inconsistency.

This desire is rooted from the evolutionary need where we need to find knowledge and learn things about the world.


Absurdist art exhibits an inverted perspective of reality where juxtaposing elements should not exist in the same realm.

However, this genre is not for everyone. Every single one of us have our own opinions regarding absurdist art. It's like how some people appreciate classical and orchestral but some don't find the appeal in it.
