My podcast explores entertainment culture (nerd, pop, ect),self improvement and philosophy with a touch of whimsy and humor.

Show Notes:

  • From last week: The essence of last week's pod is the following: Give yourself a break, you are on a path of self-improvement. This path is full of hills and valleys. There are many bumps in the road so just keep going.
  • Characterize: Write three ridiculous "if-then" scenarios to strengthen decisions you've made.
  • Engineering Luck
  • Blind luck vs. Circumstantial Luck
  • Blind Luck is answering your front door to find a talking emu who brings you fortune and fame winning the lotto, having an event you didn't want to go to canceled due to bad weather
  • Circumstantial luck
  • Characterize Write something that happened to you recently. Write one way it could be considered bad luck and one way it could be considered good luck, just to demonstrate how perception affects value. Write five "lucky" things that happened o you, then determine if they were blind luck or circumstantial luck.

Show Notes:

Quote from the book: "No matter what tricks you use or what decisions you make, go easy on yourself as someone who's on a never-ending question for improvement. No one sets out to make a bad decision...(insert reference to 2011 here)" Chris Hardwick The Nerdist Way

Opening theme is my favorite quote from Doctor Who The Almost People plus Malaguena performed by the URI Ram Marching Band under the direction of Brian Cardany. Closing theme Do it anyway by Ben Folds Five from their album The Sound of the Life of the Mind.
