    I love the simplicity of this, just do it. I think sometimes we can make things more complicated than what it needs to be. :)

  2. Melissa says:

    Thank you thank you! I just crossed off something that has been on my list since the end of August.. I can’t express how much I appreciate your videos! Thanks Matt! x

  3. Karina says:

    Exactly what I needed. I’ve been postponing several things. I’m starting to sort those things now! :-)

  4. Pauline says:

    thought this was great Matthew.. i had a potential client who regarding my business, she wanted something more advanced then what i could offer her.. so she said she would call back… she eventually did because i delayed… i knew i couldn’t provide her with what she wanted… i explained my situation to her… and explained to her why i couldn’t provide it for her…. i was delaying doing this… because i was afraid she would be quite upset…. i hadn’t met this woman, but i was surprised after we did chat how nice she was about it….. i was glad after we had spoken… i thought well why i was worried…. thank you for this video..

  5. Juliette says:

    Just what I needed! Thank you for making me laugh with this kick-ass-announcement!!!!! And it actually also really helped, I started DURING the video…honestly! OK, now I’m sidetracked writing this comment, but I’m almost contuniuing the other thing…will do so, NOW! :)

  6. MAY says:

    The only thing I could focus on this whole video was Matts behind in the mirror. … maybe also something about a pencil and envelope. Please next time you do a back shot keep it fom the waist up. Or maybe not.

  7. laurie says:

    I adore you Matthew Hussey!
    And today you inspired me to (finally) update my resume and apply for a new job. I’ve had that on my to do list for about 6 months. Not sure why I held off. . . the whole thing took about an hour.

    Anyway it is done. You are the BEST

  8. Linda says:

Thank you… I’m writing my bank fraud papers…fun stuff that started in May….really when I first bought your program…..but that’s in the past… are RIGHT!!!!

  9. Kathryn says:

    owwwwwww! I’m on it!

  10. Dréa Cunningham says:

    Ha! Loved the video! “Get Shit Done” has been my motto for 2014 so it was fun to watch. Your energy for helping others in infectious. Well done.

  11. Lusine says:

    Dear Matt,

    I am one of those followers who usually never comments but watches everything you put out. Yes, I have the ‘I sit in the back of the classroom’ syndrome.

    However, after watching this particular video I decided it was time. Time to be less of a perfectionist about things.

    You gave me the courage to finally post a Sam Smith cover I had recorded online.. My hesitation had always been ‘no, it’s not perfect enough!’ After getting so many positive messages in return – I couldn’t sit back and not thank you. SO – thank you, Matthew!

    All the best,

  12. Maria Rosa says:

    Thanks Matt!!

    Your video gave me the final push for getting started. I was feeling stuck in a rut and a bit discouraged.
    It was a rainy day, horrible weather, but I got dressed, and finally decided to start my rock classes, which I had been putting off for a long time.
    I had a great time, laughed and enjoyed the class a lot!! I couldn´t believe that I was finally doing it!!

    Thanks again for your positive message!!



  13. Amanda says:

    Love, love the video. It’s to funny especially the part where you blip out the curse word. I watched thinking that I would get some great advice for getting myself going to do stuff. Instead it was just basically a get off your ass and do it thing. Still awesome though. I think within the daily grind that is life we forget that not everything has to be a certain way. Therefore a lot of times stuff doesn’t get done. In the example Matthew gave us he reminds us that one little thing can just start you on your task. Can’t wait until June to see Matthew and his team in action, in person on the retreat. As always Matthew keeps it real. The fan light was a plus. I’m still laughing too.

  14. Lisa says:

    Hey, so I sent the text I had put off thanks to you. Now next one I was going to put off was to tell you ” Matthew you look even hotter than usual when your passionate about something!”

  15. Debs says:

    Hi Matthew,

    I watched the video yesterday morning (Sunday) at 6:30 am. Instead of staying in bed, I worked on the book outline I placed to the side several months ago. After three hours, I got dressed, drove into the city, and found three different places to write for a few hours each. I met seven new people, had a bit of a flirt with two of them, and asked one man for his number and a cup of coffee. Yes, I was brushed off. Yes, I was more than a bit disappointed about the rejection. However, I am still marveling at the amount of work I finished that afternoon.

    When I reached my book writing quota, I went back to my place, cleaned house a bit, finished a few work tasks, and rounded out the evening by completing a knitting project I had nearly given up finishing.

    Overall, it was a rewarding day. I need to have more days like that, but hopefully with more connection and less rejection.

    Thanks for the kick in the ass.


  16. Andrea says:

    I’ve now watched this twice and plan to play it when I need a get moving motivational speech in the morning. I sent a couple small business texts, emails, and finally rescheduled an appointment that probably took a minute and a half. You said something about how when we don’t accomplish these small tasks they become splinters that “erode our confidence” over time. Very true and appreciate the way you explained that.

  17. michelle says:

    Wow, that was hot. Being scolded and pushed into doing something you know is good for you is quite sexy!

  18. Adele says:

    Hey Matthew and the gettheguy team,
    I loved this video, I actually started getting some shit on my to-do-list done when I saw it.
    One more shit that I still want to do and it’s been a while I’m postponing is a conversation with my boyfriend.
    I actually wanted to ask you to give some advice on it: The situation is that we’ve been together for a couple of month and everything’s going great, smooth, of course sometimes with arguments. The only thing that I still doubt about is his “drinking habits” and if I could be compatible with that. I don’t like going to bed with a guy who smells like alcohol and it turns me off (in addition, I’m personally not a fan of alcohol). I guess this is an important part of life especially for guys. How to address and communicate this issue? I don’t want any of us to be hurt or disrespected in this conversation and I don’t know how to put it in the right way?!

  19. Tasneem Daniels says:

    All my stuff on the to-do list are not the little things, they are huge-priority tasks… which I have the required talents and experience to do, but still I procrastinate… thinking I can’t do it, I’ll suck, People won’t be happy with it… yeah let’s just get the thing done already.
    PS: Would really help if you did a video on clearing out the ‘losers’ in your life… you know? People/Friends who give you way too much meaningless bullshit and drama that ultimately just distracts you from finding that peace/harmoney/balance in your life. I have TOO much friends like these, and its frustrating me to the point of ANGER and DEPRESSION. What do I do? I’m very motivated and driven by myself, but these friends just bring me way too much uncertainty that I don’t want in my life anymore. Pls help Matthew??

    • Amanda says:

      Tasneem Daniels when I wanted to get rid of the people/friends who added drama and b.s. I did by just letting them go/dropping them. I slowly stopped going to places where they were. Slowly stopped talking to them about my life and kept it more general. If you have to make a list of how you feel when you’re around them and how you feel when you’re not around them. I also though about my friends who didn’t have the drama/b.s. and hung out with them. Yes I still see some of my friends who had the drama all the time. I keep the conversation general and short though. Hope this helps a little

  20. kate says:

    WOW, been going on too long and you have seen right inside my head…experience i guess

  21. kimberly Antonucci says:

    Thank you for this video. Recently, I took a class online to become a court reporter. I didn’t do so well for various reasons and was dropped from the course. What I have been putting off is sending the steno machine back to the school. It has been a block in my head because the machine is a visual reminder of a failure to a certain degree. On the more positive side, I did try to do something else with my career but it wasn’t meant to be right here right now. Sometimes life doesn’t go the way we plan and it goes the way its meant to be. So, in the morning, I will go to the post office and return that miserable monster reminder machine in the mail and back to the school. RIP steno machine. I’m getting my Sh*t done.

  22. Sam says:

    needed this kick in the pants. Thanks again MH

  23. Linda says:

    Just did the laundry, cleaned my room and put together my donation items :)

  24. jane says:

    I really want to thank you for this video. I have had a huge block over sorting loads of stuff out and I know it’s holding me back – I have been doing it little by little, really slowly over the months but I have had a block about the last bit I’ve been so stuck over it and going over all the thought processes in your video looking at it all every day. I know it’s keeping me stuck in other areas of my life too. So I watched your video and it really resonated so i have spent today sorting it all out – I was so miserable doing it, it felt so ridiculously hard and I didn’t understand why, I have practically spent the day working with tears of frustration, but I kept at it all day. I haven’t quite finished but I have made SO much progress and the rest feels like it will be much easier – most importantly I feel like a huge space has been freed up in my head. I think I’ll have to watch your video again next weekend. to get me to finish it off. That was a bit long, but I just want you to know that this video might just have changed my life quite a lot. Thank you

  25. Marla says:

    love this! i’m on it. ttyl.

  26. Monique Lemmens says:

    nice…I’m actually doing my things today…you’re so cute..too bad you have a girlfriend now.. ; )

  27. Delia says:

    What are you actually saying in this video? :)) Can’t concentrate myself at all because of your bump, arms… And why in the bedroom??
    You are lovely xx

  28. Andrea Huber says:

    It was very funny !!! I was just in this situation, that I really felt blocked. I should have done things with writing and the computer days before. And I could not. And right I did not feel well. Very uncomfortable. Now you gave me that shot. I will start know right away. I don’t feel like doing it, but I know I have to, afterwards I will feel much better. I really laughed, it was like i read your comment, that you knew something about me. But you can`t. So thanks for giving me the kick in my ass. :) :) Sometimes it’s just like the tipping point !!

  29. Bonny says:

    It was a little distracting watching you in the mirror ;) I think you were saying something about getting something done, but I couldn’t concentrate on what it was you were saying…LOL

  30. Jill says:

    I do need to shampoo my hair and get ready but I will do that in a sec, insert winkie face

  31. Azure says:

    Can you imagine if this were a woman giving this advice and the main thing guys said in the comments was, “Nice ass!” We would be disgusted with them.

  32. Gailelaine says:

    Thanks for the b***kicking! I do “perfumista” purchasing–and then I never keep track of the samples. Then I open a box, and guess what! I already bought a bottle of Chamade by Guerlain, and now I have 2–costing more that $100 EACH.
    I went through my entire perfume collection, got it organized, and put it in an easy-to-access display so I don’t that that expensive overspending thing again.

  33. Vavavoom says:

    Thank you….
    I need that kind of thing…
    I did actually get a kick in the butt today about something I needed to get done, and as a result I got severel things off my list that I have been putting off… I’m still in it, but now it’s going somewhere… and I can’t wait for it to be over and finished… hopefully with succes for me :S
    How ironic you made a video that fit my day so perfectly…

  34. Asmaa says:

    Why are you wearing pants????

  35. Tiffany says:

    Hey Matthew, nice butt!! and Im pretty sure I saw Jamison’s arm…. he does exist!!!
    So anyhow, I’ll do something today, productive and stuff…


  36. Morgan says:

    That was just the boost I needed. GRE book is now out and I’m studying even though it freaks me out.

  37. Petra says:

    Hello Matt!I’m done. Thx. I could not watch your back in the mirror. :)

  38. Sidra says:

    You are awesome…:)

  39. Roz says:

    You are awesome and I needed that kick in the butt thank you and well said as usual Matthew!

  40. Kathleen says:

    Great video Matt!!!
    However I don’t know how you expect us to get
    sh*t done when your perfectly wonderful bum is distracting us all.
    I had to start the video over and scroll down a bit just so I could listen to you.
    Thank you for this video ;-)

  41. Beatriz says:

    Thank you Matthew! Sad to say that this video is what pushed me to start working out again. I’ve been putting it off for a couple months now but your words really made me think. It’s a simple task but my excuse has always been I have too much other stuff going on. Well, no more starting today I’m done with procrastinating and I gotta tell you I feel great already!

    Thanks again! :)

  42. Colleen says:

    Hi Matthew,

    What and how you said in this video was right on the money!
    It’s so weird when a stranger can accurately describe me!!!
    It’s the first video I have actually watched of yours … Because I put off watching them for months waiting until I “feel” like watching. Hence that’s my weakness, waiting for the productive feeling:(
    And I think I see Lunette The Clown doll in your chair!! Haha so cute and why do you have it? :)
    Thank you for your simple quick ways of teaching!

  43. Gabriela says:

    Thanks for the video great info as usual. But i’v got to say i was very distracted by the sexy bum in the mirror

  44. Liz says:

    Thank you for the video! Also, I never realized what a cute backside you have! ;-)

  45. Lisa says:

    Aaah! Matthew! Omg! (I never write omg but in this case I needed to).

    I called to a KBT theraupist Yesterday beacuse Im sick with me procastinating and having real troubles getting *shit* done. Problem is, he dont have time for new appointments before January(!) and I need to fix this now.

    And today, I see This. Its amazing. Thank you thank you thank you!

  46. Victoria C. says:

    Thanks for letting me find this in my inbox this morning ! I did get my sh*t done. You’re amazing Matt! And tell the guy that helps you that he’s amazing too! Thanks!

  47. Shev says:

    Hi Matt:
    Thanks so much, I really needed to hear this today!!! Back from the Retreat and going through the ” teething period”. Realized the importance of being productive and organized – which will allow me to be more spontaneous ( and not hide behind the excuse of being to busy with work!)
    Plan to use this as an emotional button to get off my ass and start!!!
    You rock!
    Thanks once again.
    Warmest regards,
    Shev xx

  48. Annette Simmons says:

    well I have been putting this off. I have to clean my place. It looks clean but I need to clean big time. I am washing clothes right now and getting ready to wash my dishes. I work doing the week and on the weekends I can not get off the computer and quit watching TV. Thanks Mathew and love love you. I love to hear you talk and look at you and love love what you say.

  49. Leecis says:

    Perfect time for this!


    I was looking forward to one of your sweet Sunday morning treats.

    The last thing I needed this morning was somebody barking orders at me.

    And did you really have to shoot in front of a mirror?? Come on! Get some quality back! If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well. Seriously. Where have your high standards gone, Matt?

  51. Joanna says:

    Not exactly an exciting or glamorous task but as you were talking I brought the iPad into the bathroom and started cleaning the bathroom. But it’s now sparkling clean

  52. Claudia Maria Christoph says:

    hhaaa, I have written my exlover an email, putting all in the “headline” I don´t know what the English name for the “subject” of a mail is:
    “I have done silly bullshit and that it was my fault and my responsibility”

    nothing else, and I feel relieeeeeeeeved, thank you Matthew, big kiss (don´t take this kiss personally, this was the beginning with my Exlover too hahaa)
    and of course …. you are too young to me …. have a brilliant day!!!
    Hugs to Jamison (have I spelled it right?) I really want to see this fabulous Jamison finally!!!

    Claudia Maria

  53. Nina Delmar says:

    I heard from someone “Once you start, the pressure is off”. Which really confirms what you are talking about in this video. Every time I find myself procrastinating I swirl those words around in my head a few times and then I just start. And all of a sudden I can breathe easier.

    Nice behind by the way. Sorry, just couldn’t resist ;)

    • Claudia Maria Christoph says:

      hahaa Nina, I thought the same about the “behind” I love men standing so straight and so strong, hahaa, but I didn´t dare to tell, muuuaaaahhhh you are so sweet Nina to tell …. hahaa love you … your sister in thoughts Claudia Maria

  54. twinkle says:

    @Bo: Same here. =) I’ve gotta watch this once a week or once a month!

  55. Bo says:

    Gorgeous flow :D I will need to replay this from time to time :)))

  56. Sara says:

    Hey Matthew, thank you for motivating us to do things like this one, I think you don’t only help us with our love lives but also with our everyday lives. In my opinion this is awesome because you make us become confident from a deeper level, just by following these easy steps.

    Once again thank you, I’m going to get my sh*t done!

  57. Sharon says:

    Cheers Matthew I’m going to tackle that pile of “stuff” that I have. I’ve been telling myself that everyone has a pile of crap in their house somewhere so it’s OK but it’s been bugging me for ages. I’m now procrastinating by telling you instead of doing it! Haha at least I’m learning..right I’m going!

  58. Erin says:

    I needed to watch this! I do not need perfection, i just need to make a small steps towards daily tasks until i have accomplished my overall desired goal. I need to just do it and carpe diem.

  59. Kiraz says:

    Great motivational video, Matthew. Next week will be a very busy week for me. I hate daylight savings time change. blah. Russian scientists say it shortens the human life span up to 10 years. Not that humans need to live any longer, but it is just so unnecessary. Have a lovely week! xx

  60. Adelyn says:

    Wow, finally a view of your back

  61. jo says:

    Take whatu need thats all

  62. jo says:

    Matthew cant deal with the new world, thats why he act’s

    • Kiraz says:

      Jo, you sound like drunk texting. You know what? It is because of women like you that men see women as emotionally weak creatures. Shame.

  63. jo says:

    Its easy when people are being paid to make peoples lifes hell, easy said and done, people whos connected to matthew, he will know whos who, and he acting crazy, as he cant cope with the uk system, but acts crazys, dont be fooled by him.

  64. Ingrid says:

    I know I wasn’t supposed to talk about this… But couldn’t stop staring at his reflection the whole video, lol ;)
