If my life has a price, I am a slave, right? The problem in my point of view is that the people waste their lifes trying to be sucessfull and famous and all this bull shit, but they never trully deep think: is this what I really wanna do? and even more than it, a fucking deeper question: what is be sucessfull? Do I need to shit money for this? or I just need enough money to give me freedom to do what I want and "waste" my time as I want?

Reply reesie2222 says: July 23, 2019 at 7:25 pm I love Jordan Peterson. This video is great. Thank you to who worked to create it. Could you add the blue collar workers to it who help make the world go around ? I know construction people, electricians, plumbers, iron workers, engineers, etc. who build and make and maintain what we all take for granted. Thank you Reply pascal 7 says: July 23, 2019 at 8:16 pm Jordan Peterson is a Godsend. Reply George R says: July 23, 2019 at 9:54 pm Jordan Peterson thank you you're the best universities do not want you to write because they don't want you to think they want you to pass tests Reply George R says: July 23, 2019 at 9:55 pm They should close the universities today Reply Andre EWERT says: July 24, 2019 at 12:21 am Best thing you can do is download that App that limits your time on Facebook, Youtube and social Media..it 's a Google Store Extension..check into it Reply Andre EWERT says: July 24, 2019 at 12:23 am I usually start with the Hard Stuff First..that way, I move forward..proud of my day today…lol Reply Andre EWERT says: July 24, 2019 at 12:24 am Being one's own Boss requires Responsibility..I guess I must find a Dominatrix to keep me on track..lol Reply jhgjhgj hgjhgdj says: July 24, 2019 at 5:28 am 50$ an hour?? he is crazy Reply joe barker says: July 24, 2019 at 6:16 am life's a juggle, some times we have to make changes due to family commitments. we don't all have an individual approach to things as we grow.id be pretty ignorant if i just focused on myself and what i had to do or wanted to do.

It seems to me that he genuinely just wants to light a fire under the consciousness of people. He's trying to show people that many of our struggles can only be overcome from within. Hes done fantastic things for many people around the world just from these clips alone. I couldn't even imagine having a one on one with him. Reply Vasileios Karagiannis says: July 24, 2019 at 2:11 pm Even if all ppls would stop wasting time nobody ain’t gonna have these 50,000 he’s talking about lol he is forgetting that everything in this world is milking us like pay your apartment food medical treatment card if theres such thing in your country and lot more maybe even he does lol 😂 in the other things I agree ppls should fucking move their asses and graduate and do the best just the cruel reality is that not all ppls can be rich or do the same profession to make a lot that’s all Reply Raul mrexito says: July 24, 2019 at 3:13 pm Jordan is talking about efficiency but in reality his video is strongly inefficient. How many pictures are shown that bring nothing….He didn't show concrete applications of his points….He doesn't tell you how to study efficiently. Use your video time and the time of people efficiently. You could have done this video with the same content in 8 minutes! Reply moodist 1er says: July 24, 2019 at 4:06 pm Jordan should take his own advice and manage some of his time studying about children who are born with two sets of genitalia and the intersexual people that they are, instead of talking about things he willingly doesn't understand. Then he won't have to act so butthurt about the idea of having respect for other people. Hell, if he'd have just managed his time to read the new rules at his workplace he might have understood what they actually said instead of throwing a temper tantrum over a perception of them that he invented himself. This dood's a fucking loser pandering to mob mentalities. You're all illiterate af for entertaining this idiot Reply Howard Dixon says: July 24, 2019 at 6:23 pm I waist my time because there is nothing else to do with it. Reply Mary Dolan says: July 24, 2019 at 7:54 pm I think it is the biggest disgrace for colleges to charge these outrageous costs that they will take a lifetime to pay off and will prevent them from buying a house or have a decent life Reply Patu says: July 24, 2019 at 8:20 pm I get some "Alan Watts of the 20th century" vibes from this video.

Reply Dangerous Dan says: July 25, 2019 at 9:54 am I first watched this video with a 1.71 college GPA back in November. I’ve climbed to a 2.84 in 2 semesters and have become a better/more productive person in every aspect of my life. It’s something i think about as the turning point in my life. Proof is sort of in the pudding here. Listen to the man and follow through and you really can accomplish amazing things. Reply imsoocheesy says: July 25, 2019 at 3:02 pm 0:21 im doing exactly what hes saying by watching this video Reply Oh No says: July 25, 2019 at 5:12 pm From 8:04 to 8:24 really hits my heart, because I spent my whole life denying God — not because of the biblical narratives, but really because of the moral responsibility. There's something so degrading about being responsible enough to refrain from certian pleasures while noticing that my being is inherently flawed. It really takes a lot to appreciate some 'Heavenly' grace because of natural inclinations that only leads to temporary desires I'm spiraling down to a spiritual death. Its not until now that I've realized that if I focus my efforts & responsibilities on the appreciation of the blessings in my life, i will tend to understand how to love myself, the people around me, or even God Himself. This is so humbling.

Reply Francesco Cauzzi says: July 26, 2019 at 8:13 am My doubt is, is this the way to be successful or is it this the way to be a capitalism slave, employed in a company where the owner is relaxing playing golf at the Bahamas and you working with all your schedule and shit, like a workaholic, with no free time, no holidays, just to permit to your boss doing that life!?

Being smart or hardworking is pointless where I am from. Reply Long Johnson says: July 28, 2019 at 9:07 am The thing is "wasting time" merely refers to using time for yourself, to take a break, to not run after the money. This is very important time. You are not a machine that can work 24/7 so waste some of your time or you will get sick! Reply Alex R Fontes says: July 28, 2019 at 9:41 am Awesome!! Mind blowing!! Excellent!!

Make jack for money. Curious to try certain things but I've seen multiple failures by many friends and it cost them big time. A few got lucky. Had one friend who was going to quit his job because they wouldn't give him day shifts initially. They called him back the next day and offered him a promotion with an 8 dollar per hour pay raise. Wtf. Thats not supposed to happen. When the recession hit in 2008, I lost my job and then my car. Started walking 5 miles one way to apply for jobs. Nothing. I only ended up getting a job on a whim from a friend about a year later. So luck was on my side for that. I guess hard work MAY pay off. But there is a healthy dose of luck with it when it comes to the job market.
