Hey, I’m Mattved, legally Matěj Adámek. Data analyst by profession, economist by education, behavioral psychologist by book collection, cancer survivor since 23, and mentor to a good few.

This is my blog, where I share various academic and technical resources in addition to thoughts on daily struggless, books, and wonderful opportunities. My Views may give you a general context and if you want background, you can check out my profile. And those those who have inspired me are mentioned in My Squad.

On Being Fat

My perspective on how I managed to establish and control my physical state. Also on how I failed doing that most of time.


On Mentors

Few thoughts on people I have encountered in the professional environment. Because regardless of how pleasant they are, most shaped me to be better than what I do. Not necessarily to be a better employee, though.

On Fame

Three stories capturing three different reactions to personal fame in reflection on Hank Green's book An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. Is fame what anyone in the world should want?
