i really enjoyed your opening about Vicktor Frankl.

I got lost on the next paragraph. What are you attempting to communicate here?

Success, satisfaction and happiness are rather the consequences that we...

Paradoxical intention, the ability to overcome obsessions and anxieties through humorous exaggeration, was one of Frankl's key analysis components and a strategy I frequently use when things seem so disproportionately ridiculous I just need to make a satire about it.

His book "The Meaning of Life" was a best seller in the United States in 1991, it was a good read and I recommend it.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the informational analysis, it solidifies what I already know subconsiously and you touched on a lot of good points which has reaffirmed my decision to continue my goals towards data analysis / science / engineering for a career.

Your article has also made me wonder if I will need to obtain a master's degree in either Applied Data Science and/or computer science to be taken seriously.

I may not be sexy but I am serious, I would rather not spend the coin for a degree that tells others I am competent. I already know I am capable of learning and applying anything.

The real enemies for me are what kind of deadlines I am dealing with, how accessible the data is and how receptive the customer is to the results the data analysis points too.

Very interesting article. I was looking for a way to expose the __dict__ of my classes without referencing the builtin directly.

One thing you didn't cover that is worth mentioning, not only can we retrieve the values through the vars() function we can set them as well.

When I tested it out

>>> a = 'Hello'

>>> b = 'World'

>>> vars()['a'] = Goodbye

>>> vars()['b'] = 'Cruel World'

>>> '\n'.join([vars()['a'], vars()['b']])

'Goodbye\nCruel World'

>>> print('\n'.join([vars()['a'], vars()['b']]))

Goodbye

Cruel World

Cool Beans!
