I Am Groot.
And I Dance.
Surprising to no one who knows me, Groot was my absolute favorite thing about Guardians of the Galaxy. I want a Groot. 
I want a DANCING Groot.
I just really wanted to animate a tiny dancing tree baby, ok?
(For serious, set some music to it.)

Advice for People in Their Twenties ∞

dailyzenlist:

1. Find three hobbies you love: one to make you money, one to keep you in shape, and one to be creative.

2. Getting a degree matters, but getting the right degree matters even more.

3. Leave every job you have on good terms. Do not burn your bridges.

4. See the world while you still don’t have…

Had a Fucking Great Idea? This Should Be Your Mindset.

Forget “not telling anyone because they’ll steal it.” Don’t even think about an NDA.

So your idea is awesome, huh? Alright, here’s how to react to having it:

Assume some random dude in Indiana already had it 3 weeks ago.

Ideas are cheap. 

There are 7.1 billion people on this earth. Many of them read the same shit you do. Use the same tools. Do the same work - and have the same frustrating problems.

Many of them are armchair entrepreneurs just like you.

So no, your idea is not revolutionary. At least, not if it stays an idea.

Remember that ideas are simply a multiplier of execution.

They’re worthless on their own.

So hustle and bring that idea to life, before the Indiana guy does.

Because I love books, this is probably my favorite quote from Rands:

"There is a time and a place that I want to know more, and no amount of Facebook updates is going to placate this curiosity. Perhaps this is a function of my generation, but there are two defining moments for me in the getting-to-know-you phase of a relationship:

#1 Can you talk shit? I’m not talking bland sarcasm, I’m talking about a full court comedy offensive that demonstrates not only that you are aware of your surroundings, but you have a gift for improvisation and the courage to use it.

#2 Where’s your bookshelf? It’s this awkward moment whenever I first walk into your home. Where is it? Everyone has one. It might not be huge. It might be hidden in a closet, but in decades of meeting new people, I’ve never failed in finding one and when I do I consume it.

See, I don’t really trust you until we talk a little shit and then I see your bookshelf.”
