Don’t get me wrong I’m going to continue to work my ass off but I will be implementing some strict boundaries moving forward like “No Work Saturdays”. These kinds of rules are necessary because (fortunately) I love what I do & if I didn’t set them I’d take things too far. It’s easy to let “just this one weekend” turn into "every weekend".
This might not be the message you need to hear right now. You might be in the same place I was a year ago and you need to continue to put in long hours. But don’t forget to pump the breaks from time to time, especially when you’ve managed to make a full-time living.
Thanks for watching! Let me know if the comments some rules that have worked to help you keep your sanity while pursuing your passions :)

I recommend you to watch a video from Clark, the tittle is "How I retired at 36 and spent 20 years sailing". He mentioned about The Economy of Enough and shared his experience in pursuing his best life.

I NEEDED THIS VIDEO SO BAD! After 3 years of working my face off & going through a massive burn out & depression (got to the point of being suicidal - that's how far flipping loving my job got me!) I decided to see a therapist..who is giving me the exact kind of advice that you've share here for free! Would have saved myself some cash by watching this video on repeat a few times, I suppose... I created a small brand & it's been insanely hard to keep up with the goals I was setting up for myself! In my defense, I spend so much time comparing my brand to others that I end up feeling behind & I keep raising my expectations. Yup, I expect to have a website just as cool & an Insta account just as popular as that brand that had 10 employees... while I am being leather artisan, website builder, social media marketer & photographer, all in one. This year I decided to SLOW THE F***K DOWN & came across this video of yours just in time! Thanks!!!!!!!

Matt, You’re an awesome content creator! Please keep sharing your gifts. I love your authenticity and insights.
Yes, balance in work and life is key to our happiness. I got so burn out 5 years ago that I had to take one year off to recharge my body and soul.

That's actually so true sometimes when I feel exhausted from working or studying I take a short break to do something for myself like going out to get some coffee or watching my fav series etc ... thank you for sharing this with us we need to remember this sometimes .

That question in the beginning - "What would you do, if money wasn't an issue?" - is one of my favorite ones to ask people. Answers are really surprising some times. Other times you just get a shrug and an "I don't know".

Matt. I just subbed to your channel. Very interesting commentary. I am a big fan of Captain Sinbad, and find your attitudes and commonalities of great interest. At 80+ a few months, I am at a much different step on the ladder of self discovery. If you don’t mind I would like to be among your regular guests, commenting n perspectives from the age of an elder who, too, is a seeker. Is this cool with you?

it’s almost 6am, january 3rd, i have two 2500 word assignments due on the 6th - i have been ill all week, fallen so far behind, and i’m worried i won’t get these done, let alone to a good standard .. pressed to my tv is a post-it note with the words ‘all out sprint’ - the motivation i need to maybe not sleep for three days, still make it to work over the weekend, but ultimately, get this shit done 😬

I've been casually publishing YouTube videos over the last approximate year, and as I go into 2020 with even more content I am thinking about how to pace myself so I don't get close to the burnout edge. Thanks so much for this video, Matt!

Dear Matt DA'vella,
Its been a while that I have been stalking you.( caught ;-).
But few months ago.
My life was miserable, I had no goals, I was depressed,procrastinating things,spending hours scrolling youtube videos.
Than I found one of yours video.
Since then.I forgot the count of times I have checked your videos.
I feel alive, I deleted social medias, I have started meditating, waking up at 5, journalling,( not taking the showres🤓).
But its all worth it.
I didnt come here to thank you because the word is too trival..
However, Thank you❤😊
You are amazing flimmaker and storyteller.
You changed my life❤

Thanks Matt for your effort in bringing this topic. Very honest, inspirational and full of wisdom. I just started my journey into minimalism and your channel has very good insights on the topic. (Subscribed).

Been in a similar situation but not with editing videos, but with writing articles about my trips as I've been living out my travel blog and I constantly have to keep up with writing, no break, so I understand you. Trying to slow down in the past year after crazy years on the road and it's not easy, but it's necessary :)

Minimalism and over working, maybe both obsessions to escape the real truth. I’d say, what is that personal truth you/we can’t face? When you find that,
the peace will come/or we’ll just cohabit with our Shadow
