"YOUR BRAIN IS A LAZER."
The Nerdist Way: How To Reach The Next Level (In Real Life)
"We have a saying on the Nerdist podcast: “Enjoy your burrito.” On episode 39 with Rainn Wilson, Jonah Ray, one of my cohosts (hi, other cohost Matt Mira!), explained that when his life was shitty, his only joy was this particular burrito. Halfway through, he’d get depressed because he knew it would be over soon. One day he decided to “enjoy his burrito”—in other words, appreciate something good while it was happening. Nerds tend to spend a lot of time in the past and future, but to achieve happiness you have to cultivate the skill of living in the present. So as you pilot your brain through this glitzy shitberg we call the 21st century, it is with the greatest sincerity I say to you, goodly nerd, enjoy your burrito."
"A ‘Nerd’ is someone who homes in on a topic to an almost quantum detail, much of the time at the expense of healthy social interaction. Nerds get caught up in the minutiae because there is a tremendous and fulfilling sense of control in understanding every single detail of a thing more than any other living creature."
Chris Hardwick, “Nerdist Way”
Everything you do is magic.
Your destiny is right in front of you.
Anything is possible, my friends.
You can spread your wings.
You can fly to the moon if you want to.
Just like birds do…
Hard ‘N Phirm “Anything”
"I don’t mean to shit on your dreams, but that’s a dumb aspiration.
That’s not even nerdy."
