  27. Gábor Thomas says:

    Very motivating your videos !
    I saw on a few of your videos as you playing games. Usually how much time do you have play ? Or how you "calculate" time for yourself to do things like playing. Do you have a video about that ?
    Thanks if you have time to answer.
    Keep it up the good content !

  30. Nick Benhoff says:

    I agree with your comment on “hustle culture.” There are a lot of people at the top of their careers that tell people just starting that investing time and hard work is bad for you, yet without that time and hard work they necessarily wouldn’t be where they are?

  31. Invest With Queenie says:

    Awesome book review! I’m going to add this one to my audible cart ☺️

    Learn how to use the Internet, there is plenty wealth on the Internet

  33. Master Procrastinator says:

    I stumbled upon toxic productivity and hustle culture twice now, with him. And anyone can explain why its a thing though? Its wrong to work hard? Since when does , to some, who has to work hard and sometimes, painfully hard, toxic?

    You reap what you sow kindda thing right? Or even self-reliant is self-offensive , and since thats a thing , so every frickin idea is offensive?

  34. ŠVENDA says:

    You know that one guy from series ,,Squid Game'' has same name as you – Ali Abdaal?
