He mostly talks about math (some of the posts are rather technical), but there is also a wealth of career advice / philosophical musings that could be enlightening to other scientists as well.
Here are a few good posts:
There’s more to mathematics than rigor and proofs
Continually aim just beyond your current range
Career advice: Ask yourself dumb questions and answer them
The “no self defeating object” argument and the vagueness paradox
