The Thrive Global Podcast: Episode 6, Neil deGrasse Tyson (Part 1)

“I don’t want to be that guy, who is saying ‘The youngins today, and their habits, and they’ll be the death of civilization.’”

He has voiced his concern about seeing the world through a screen rather than your own eyes before (including in his Thrive Questionnaire), but told Huffington, “I don’t want to be that guy, who is saying ‘The youngins today, and their habits, and they’ll be the death of civilization.’” deGrasse added “the future will be a different world but I don’t necessarily fear it.”

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
