Because there is a lot of knowledge to get out of the weirdest things
The story behind the quote:The quote comes from Jerry Maguire. The film itself has become a sort of cultural icon as there are a lot of memorable quotes from the film and this may be the first one Im using. Anyway, the movie is about Jerry Maguire, a popular sports agent. He is fired from his agency after writing a letter noting how dishonest other sports agents are. He then focuses all his strengths on his sole client, Rod Tidwell, a wide receiver who believes hes better than he really is.
The quote comes from the middle of the film. A frustrated Jerry (played by Tom Cruise) pleads with Rod (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) to try to ease up with his demands. Jerry tells the football star that he has been working really hard to meet his demands but hes at his breaking point.
Geek wisdom: We can be too proud to ask for assistance at times. We can feel foolish or we dont want to come off as weak. So, instead of asking for help, we instead needlessly trudge on with the problem.
This is totally incorrect. In fact, its actually a sign of strength to ask for help when you realize you require it. Nobodys perfect. We can be great at everything but there is always someone out there that will be willing to help you work on those weaknesses.
Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time.
