Why do you hate your own voice? You sound like Ethan Hawke or Owen Wilson when they were young.

If you want buy new house for your parents and make million dollars, build business and do not be only person in company. As a company, country force you to hire people, so do that. Watch your finances, track taxes and do more delegations in company. How company grooving, you hour-rate is growing as well, so your job and your obligations are changing during growth time. If you want to make money, stop doing 10$/h jobs. Lean only to one industry, don't have backup plan, focus your energy to building a business. Write all the skills you need for a… Read more »

Shit I wasted my life from 21 to 32 (still wasting it) in a backend programming job.
Take it for what it is. You lived in Finland. You finished college and worked as an engineer. Now you're doing something fulfilling.

@Joshua Fluke Relax! The Early to Mid 30s are the Peak Years for a Man! You can date Girls in their 20s! Senior Workers and Management will take you more serious at work etc, etc…

If you are financially able to I would definitely recommend travelling to another continent where everything is new. Its like being a child again. Looking back after a 2 week holiday feels like an extremely long period of time in a good way.

You described your life story the very same way I thought my life would live out. I’m 19 and all I want to do is make YouTube videos and play video games (on a Mac 🤦‍♂️), instead of focusing on how I’m going to get through college. I just found your channel and you have already pumped out so much wisdom to me. I now know I need to grow up and be the better version of me. I want to start the next chapter of my life, where I’m working at a real company and living in the real… Read more »

What the fuck. You're talking like Tyler Joseph from Twenty One Pilots… You could literally write his lyrics.

i usually see time speeding up for me occurring from a couple of things:too busy to stop and reflect and just do lessthe years/time compounds, when i was younger a year meant a lot more to me, in the same way $20 made me feel loaded. I didn't know much a year meant i could play huuge amount of ps2 games, i didnt know what 'thinking about a career' was or 'pursuing a hobby that will be useful in the future' was, just a kid who didn't know what he didn't know or if he needed to find out. Now… Read more »

You are very lucky to have figured this out in your 20's. Most people never progress to this level.

The first guy who is real on YouTube. Loved to hear your story. I am or was in a same position as you, which brought me into therapy, which I am glad I am now. I also struggle to socialise and talk to girls, I also played video games every day from 9 to 10pm, I also made terrible choices career wise. It's good to hear someone talking about this (and not sound like a motivational speaker). Btw I think your voice is totally fine. I know annoying voices and they are not so honest as yours. Keep working to… Read more »

In life you work so you get more money to buy and do more stuff, rince and repeat. Basically a skinner-box. Some will be perfectly happy going to the same job for 50 years, playing the same video games, others will not. Once your basic needs are met, happiness does really come from inside, it's not a trope. In the end only you yourself can control how you feel about your life. All talk about 'wasted life' is useless since nobody can define what a non-wasteful life is. It sounds stupid but basically: focus on things that make you happy… Read more »

I decided to quit games when I turned 18. So I can focus on gym, socialising and creating my own life

Was the best decision I ever made

Man the part about time flying by after college is something I've thought about a ton. I've concluded that its exactly what you talked about, the lack of unique experiences happening at every turn. Things become almost too routine day in and day out. I think its an important experience to have though, gives perspective on how short life really is.

I am 41 and I don't feel like I am 41. There is a young adult here inside wondering what the heck is happening to his hair and skin.

Man I'm 30 and obviously I can relate. My problem is I realized a lot of this stuff even in high school but for the life of me I can't think of anything I want or enjoy doing. I dont have any business ideas.

Please, use rule : 1 video = 1 week like other tech YouTubers (TechLead, Jomatech) instead of posting videos everyday. I have no time to watch you everyday. I have a job, a girlfriend, a hobby.

Thank you.

Soon i'll be 27, no job, no education. In debt. Feel a lot of what you were talking about Josh. Only last couple of years or so i realised i'm going nowhere and it's going to stay that way if i don't do something about it. Like you, i feel like i wasted alot of time. But it's in the past and i can only change what i do now and into the future. I'm going to work hard and become what i want to be. Thanks for the video Josh.
