  • Hello! I have been watching and listening for about a year now and have enjoyed your insights, especially the “life coaching” kind of thing. Have I found a man? Not yet, but I’ve been fairly overwhelmed with attention. I find your advice has helped me in ALL of my male relationships, friends, relatives, not just romantic possibilities. Amazing how differently men and women think! Anyway, thanks for all you do, it is really valuable to me and,many others. Take care. JJ

  • Yard work. I recently got a full time job. between that, kids and dating…. my yard has taken a back seat. Thank you for that video that just confirmed what I was already thinking.

  • Hi, Matt, hope you´re having a great day!
    I am 21 years old, very confident outgoing and spontaneous. The problem is, I seem to attract guys who put me on a pedestal and get that puppy look in their eyes, saying “I will do anything for you!” which I get bored of quickly since I don´t feel like there is any challenge for me. On top of that, contrary to my social life, I am submissive when it comes to sex but I don´t know how I could possibly market that. I am told I give off a dominant vibe and no one would guess I am not the one with a whip in the bedroom.
    I´d love your advice on what I can do.

    1. Also, there’s no such thing as dominance and submission. Those are created by people.

      Just create what you want.

      1. I love that statement. I feel that once you can let go of all inhabitions and be free of judgement & insecurities with someone, you with be universal in the bedroom (or any other place, in your sexual activities) people who say your dominate or not or other are dating as a sport; as a posed to looking for a soul mate on a quest for a better/deeper meaning to life & love.

  • My new focus is to get my Insurance license. I put off studying because I would take care of other ppls needs and kept thinking I can do it later, tonight, tomorrw. BUT tomorrow always got pushed to the next day. Thank you Matthew for some very sage advice.:)

  • I needed to hear this today! I need to write an article for my company’s news letter. I’ve been putting this off all month because I’m scared I’m going to do a poor job. I’m not a writer! I’m going to work on this at 10:00am before my meeting at 11:30am.

  • Thanks so much for that! Very timely. I just transitioned out my old job and I’m launching a new one, trying to date more in alignment with what I truly want and need (thanks for your help in that area!) working and getting in shape – well, you get the picture….
    Last week was my first one full-time in my new position which is very self-directed. -Feel like I didn’t get anything done because there was so much do!
    Will use this lovely Sunday afternoon to do some time blocking for the coming week. I’ll let you know how it goes :-)! Alice

  • I’ve been procrastinating writing my thank you cards from my birthday party for about two months now. Let’s see if I can get them done before my brothers graduation party today! #futuremrshussey

  • Ha! I have trouble making time for rest! I clear my schedule to rest and do everything but… however stuff does get done.

    This was a great little reminder that I have more time then I think I do.

    Thanks Matt!

  • Yes! I also find that I am most productive when I work backward from my deadlines. I can pack a few things into a given time frame if I organize them realistically and using common sense. If my mind is on business, do a few different business-like things rather than business, educational and personal.

  • I actually think I´ve been putting off 30% of my life, wasting time trying to get things started or preparing with Netflix ;)

  • This is so true. I have an enormous to do list. Much of that list consists of tasks related to my recent start up company. I’ve recently completely cleared my schedule in hopes of knocking out a bunch tasks, only to end up looking back and seeing not a lot of progress, yet I ask myself, “what happened , I had all day.” This video is super helpful and speaks exactly to my situation. And I am implementing this strategy, along with breaking tasks into turtle steps, right away. Thank you

  • Yip I’m one of those ‘lovely’ people that looks forward to your other than dating advice:) I’m also a terrible procrastinator. Really interesting take on getting more done. Thanks Matt.

  • Hearing this productivity tip for the first time ;)..I will give it a shot…I have been putting away my desire to start my own training sessions. I need to have a serious deadline that scares me a bit I guess. ..Thank you for the tip !

  • Thank you for this video. Time is my biggest eneny; or perhaps I’m my biggest enemy….according to time. Either way, I’m going to apply your concept. Thank you for an out of the box idea.

  • Matthew, you can definitely do more videos on these kinds of things! Actually, within time, maybe you should look to start something down this alley as well.

  • Completely agree — and have used this tip for years. For those who ask, “How do you get so much accomplished?” — this is the secret. More is more. (Go figure, right?) BTW, the 9:00 or 9:30 time seems to be the sweet spot for me, as well. Then the up-at-6, get-a-few-laser-beam-hours-in happens consistently.

  • I am living and breathing. I needed to hear this video. There is always so much to do and we can check out of being responsible for it all instead of stepping up. I want to take on being responsible for higher outcomes and productivity that I can have it all and not procrastinate. Am applying for jobs and working on my own business as well. Thanks for the tips!
