Matt I love your podcast! It´s my mind escape when I have tons of photos to retouch. Every time you upload a new podcast I look to the thumbnail to see if this is the one, with The Rock. Keep hammering! It will happen!

Will Smith is a very good example how much YouTube counts. He may be on YouTube but first of all he's still a movie star.
I watched a YouTube-episode of Casey Neistat lately in which he met up with Will Smith in his office. When exiting a few fans came towards him asking for selfies 'n stuff. Casey was like "guys, what do you want from me, there's Will Smith!" But nobody cared, Will Smith just went to his car. Ok, another generation here, I'm in the mid forties. But that was a very weird situation to watch nevertheless. 😁

So I’ve always loved working with my hands and I like what Matt’s guest works in. Does anyone think that taking some courses for a mechanical engineering major is a step in the right direction? Or is it another major that I should be looking in?

Hey Matt You got yourself a new subscriber. Not just on this video alone. Ive been watching your videos like how to wake up at 6am and the personal money stuff and you have motivated me enough to do what I need to do to get it done and I thank you. You put a lot of work into your content and I appreciate that. Im sorry but I can't donate on your patreon, I am a college student. But I will continue to watch your videos and your podcasts.

I don't think that these are minimalist ways of life being displayed in these young men. Just forsaking everyday household comforts for creative tools. Its a solid decision, but not some kind of zenlike ideal. I am paying close attention because I think it is way too easy to get caught up in the idealistic philosophy and have unrealistic expectations of clarity and happiness. Listen closely, this is all about really expensive creative tools.

Hey matt , I don’t know how do you do Q & A’s and answer questions , My question is , since most minimalists I have seen are single or a couple , never saw minimalists with children or a couple that about to have a baby, how much of an effect will be and what kind of effect or will it work at all , I ‘ll search online for minimalist parents meanwhile , but I just wanted to know Your POV

Hey Matt. I love the show, but just wanted to know if you totally got your opening video for your show (with the coffee) directly from Dexter's opening? If not, check it out. It always makes me think of Dex when I watch your show.

Matt I just today cleared nearly everything out of my room and threw most of it out, and it is terrifying. I feel, almost alone. I have clarity of mind and I feel free, but I am lonely in my room. How can I mitigate this?

Matt, here's my burning question: Why does your charcoal t-shirt always look green on my monitor? Seriously, man, I know you're not gonna show up to examine my monitor. But what is it about tech and color presentation? This is slowly driving me crazy. (I really am serious!) Also, you do really good work.

A cheaper monitor could lead you to see incorrect colors. The blacks on my curved Samsung monitor I got for $180 often look pixelated due to its cheap panel. Also, Matt mentioned that the light he's using in these podcasts has a slight green color.

"motivation is born from fire. inspiration is born from a place of tears. anxiety or depression or neurosis. " like your line, Daniel. thinking of inspiration, mine seems like come from the comments and questions that people gave me. Sometimes those comments lead me even to write a book.

Sometimes I feel that I sacrifice things that I should. Recently I felt I was sacrificing my health for a job ( i studied for this so many year) and now I feel so dumb doing this! I decided now that I should do something that I really love but dont really know what exactly (I do YouTube but not as a job but as a passion) hope I am on my way to 😊
