I am from India and a student, I love watching your video and try to infuse your work with my life. I can see my mindset from been "what is best I can have" to "what I required".

I prefer the disciplined pursuit of reason because for the woke degenerates, reason is treason.

The essentialist path is not about doing more in less time. It's about doing only the right things.

I am a person who is very very wasily distracted. But the moment I started watching this video i got hooked. I had many distracting thoughts during this video but this time was different. This time it was all in the background.
Basically I guess thats what essentialism is. All the other thoughts that are not important just stay in the background. You know they are there, you acknowledge them but you do what is essential at that very moment.
Thanks for the video. Really great content.
Just keep on doing what you are doing.

“How are you?” Answer 20 years ago: “I’m great.” At time of video interview: “I’m (so) busy.” In new decade, I now hear many people respond, “I am (so) tired”

what if you already have known this, but are struggling with starting or accomplishing tasks and starting passions everyday. I know I want to do things, not even distracting myself with social media, right next to my guitar or my pen and it just doesn't click. It's like my motivation is stuck in a bubble and it can't grab onto what I need it to. The only way to describe it is that it hurts. I'm just in a journey right now and I'll find out what works, but rn it just sucks ass.

my friend recently told me he knew i loved being busy; and as much as i talk a lot about being exhausted, tired, burnt out and never free
i couldn’t disagree with him 🤷🏻‍♂️ i like being productive, and it’s why my diary is full - though it’s just as true that i would love more consistent in life, and to have the freedom to see my friends and work on relationships more

I like the idea of minimalism... up to a point. I like my clothes, I couldn’t wear the same thing over and over again, and I like colour, I wouldn’t have a basic, black and white home but I like a lack of clutter. I recently cleared out my room of all the stuff I don’t want anymore and felt so much better

Sorry man but when you're at work 10 hours a day, trying to save for retirement (if that's even a real thing), you have no time and energy for anything else. System puts you to work in one way or another.

I like this but I like the sense of busy, it feels for me that I am striving for something and I am making a difference through what I do. I do like the mentality that do more just encapsulates - something Casey Neistat is all about. Not saying advocate full on beast mode with what you do but there is something there about applying yourself and surrounding yourself with motivated people and growing. It's about growth and pair that with surrounding yourself with the essential people - that is what it is about.
