Better Education For A Better Nation
Better Education For A Better Nation
Joining me for this episode is a highly-sought after speaker, trainer and coach Dr. Danny Brassell. Danny has spoken to over 3,000 audiences worldwide and authored 16 books, his latest being: Leadership Begins with Motivation. In addition to that, Danny is a huge advocate of reading and is a firm believe that reading plays a vital role in creating leaders and building the foundation to a successful life and career. As a thank you for listening to this episode, Danny would like to offer you a free e-copy of his book 'Read, Lead & Succeed', which can be accessed by clicking on the url provided: https://freegiftfromdanny.com/ In this episode, Danny and I tackle the reasons why student disengagement is becoming the norm rather than the exception. We also discuss some weaknesses in the current educational system that seems to be implemented worldwide that causes students to lose interest in the information they are receiving. Education, especially at a young age is critical for kids to explore who they are and what they want to be. Not to mention that education, according to Raymond Dalio - an American billionaire investor, a hedge fund manager at Bridgewater and the author of 'Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed and Fail', is one of the 8 key strengths that typically plays a crucial role in a country's rise and decline. Finally, we dive into the topic of reading where Danny teaches me, both directly and indirectly, the importance of reading for our personal and professional development.

What's My Type?
What's My Type?
Despite the great advancements in sciences, we still struggle to fully understand the human brain, making it hard to scientifically justify many aspects of human behavior, including personality development. Therefore, scientists created psychometric tests that facilitate understanding to aid in mental health treatment, job training and placement and self-knowledge. To be more specific, personality test were designed to systematically elicit information about one's preferences, interests, emotional makeup and motivations. But, to what extent are these tests accurate? And should they be taken seriously? Join me in an episode where I take my first personality test ever, share my personality profile with you, briefly tackle the theories of personality development and criticize personality tests.

Know Yourself: A Guide to Stress Management
Stress is the feeling of emotional or physical tension that one may experience when under threat or pressure. This reaction usually surfaces when one feels that they are in a situation that they cannot manage or control. Although we all experience stress, the way we react to these stressors is different. It is therefore important for us to know what the causes of our distress are, what type of stressors are we and how can one better manage their stress. Join me and mindfulness Coach and Teacher, Sarah Vallely, for an fruitful conversation where she not only teaches me about stress, mindfulness and the importance of meditation, but helps me identify what my unique stress type is using one of her data driven tests that you can take now for free.

Can Machines Think?
Can Machines Think?
Long before computers had sophisticated central processing units and powerful graphical processing units that made artificial intelligence possible, scientists such as Alan Turing and John Searle were debating whether machines will ever be able to emulate human intelligence. This opened the door to many thought experiments such as 'The Chinese Room Argument' that criticized machines' future ability to think. Now that the world is witnessing advancements in the field of AI - from computers that could beat the top chess players to self-driving vehicles, the debate was re-introduced, which in return raised many philosophical questions regarding consciousness, understanding and intelligence.  Joining me for this episode is a cognitive scientist and researcher, Keiland Cooper. Keiland is a researcher at the University of California and the core of his work is somewhere in the middle of neuroscience, data science and artificial intelligence. Over the years, Keiland had the privilege to work on multiple research projects ranging from how the brain learns and functions, to AI and the neurological impacts of COVID-19. If you would like to connect with Keiland or read some of his publications, then you can do so either by following him on twitter or visiting his website And as usual, if you would like to stay updated with the latest podcast news and episode releases, if you have any suggestions, recommendations or you just feel like sending us a message, then feel free to reach us out on the podcast's twitter account.

Finding Your Purpose
Finding Your Purpose
Purpose, according to William Damon, the director of the Stanford Center on Adolescence, is defined as "a stable and generalized intention to accomplish something that is at the same time meaningful to the self and consequential for the world beyond the self". In a world where educators are anxious, depressed and discontent at the system they’ve found themselves in and where students are either under immense amounts of pressure or feel disengaged, it is crucial that teachers rediscover their purpose. In this episode, we discuss how difficult it is for one to choose their own career path, the role of schools and education systems in helping children experience what it is like to work in different sectors, the weaknesses in the current education system that prevents students from either preparing themselves to the demands of the workplace or anticipate the requirements of the field, the need to re-imagine education to increase both the teachers' and pupils' engagements, and finally we seek to give solutions to solve the problems previously mentioned. As usual, hope you have an amazing day!  As promised, below are the some of the articles and blogs that I've read that you can check out: a.

Fill It Before You Kick It
Fill It Before You Kick It
I personally have never made a bucket list, and I never though of making one. It might because I never thought of the goals I've set as things that could go into one's bucket list. My idea of a bucket list was that it was a collection of adventures and crazy things one would like to do during their lifetime. It has never occurred to me that any idea that you would like to accomplish could go into that list. As I was surfing the web, trying to find some inspiration for my own bucket list, I found a bunch of things that reminded me of the funny things I do or have done in the past. While this episode is a bit less serious than usual, there are some key points you could take away. I hope you enjoy this one! Have a good one y'all.

Will I Ever Make Up For the Lost Sleep?
Will I Ever Make Up For the Lost Sleep?
Volunteering at Wadi Rum was just the thing I needed after a long week of sitting down and staring at the screen; it was definitely an unforgettable experience. However, volunteering can be exhausting, and we definitely felt it during the event as we had little to no sleep that day. That got me thinking whether it is possible to recover from sleep deprivation and how long can it take to do so. What about people with insomnia? Can they recover from sleep deprivation? Can the body survive on little to not sleep? Let's unravel the mystery!
