Dude, You Fucked Me Up a Little Bit

This clip from Joe Rogan’s podcast spoke to me so much I had to share it. It’s a conversation between two stand-up comedians, but it’s infinitely applicable. I can’t distill it any better than it is already presented here. I could have said this word for word to friends Jared Campbell (after last years Barkley) and years ago to Steve Copson (at the beginning stages of my [former-life] software career). Thank you both.

You must surround yourself with these people.

“Dude, I gotta be honest with you. You fucked me up a little bit.” 

“My friend is doing something really special here. I know I have something in me, and I’m not living up to it. And being around him reminds me of the fact that I’m not living my fuckin life.”

“100% of all haters in the world are unrealized potential.” 
“There is no scarcity.”
