6 essential lessons for a productive career (Daniel Pink)

1. There is no plan
    Make decisions for fundamental, not instrumental reasons. 

2. Think strengths, not weaknesses.
    What do you do consistently well? What gives you energy rather than drains you? 

3. It's not about you.
    The most successful people improve their own lives by improving others' lives. 

4. Persistence trumps talent.
    There are massive returns to doggedness. 

5. Make excellent mistakes.
    Commit errors from which the benefits of what you've learned exceed the costs of the screw-up.

6. Leave an imprint.
    Recognize that your life isn't infinite and that you should use your limited time here to do      something that matters.

Data science (DCU)

Dublin City University

Data Science in DCU

Data Science involves the study of information—where it comes from and the patterns it forms—and 
how to turn this data into a resource for business, government and social strategies. Data Scientists are investigators, story-tellers and problem-solvers who organise information, find unique ways to communicate its salient points, and think of creative ways to apply it to real world situations.
As a DCU Data Science undergrad, you’ll learn theory in mathematics, statistics, programming, cloud technologies and machine learning. Your qualification will be highly marketable, with global demand across numerous sectors.
