    thank you.
    the ted talk at the start of this video may be found here:
    i'd also like to mention that this is a supportive community, regardless of how long you study/how hard you study, at the end of it we're all students and here to learn. I ask that you refrain from toxic productivity in this chat as we try to encourage each other to do better, thank you.

    I had seen this video on my recommendation's, and thought it was useless i was starting my prepartaion of the 'JEE' entrance examination. I had thought that i am studying 15 hrs, then why to watch such a silly video. But after a few days, my consistently broke and after months, i realised the real value of consistency. So guys please watch such videos because it is very easy to start, as u r motivated, but it is very difficult to be consistent on the entire path and to stand the test of time.

Esse conceito de impulso foi ótimo, as vezes estamos tão focados em querer ser bons nos estudos ou só passar em uma certa avaliação que nos esquecemos totalmente ou nem sabemos do porquê restamos fazendo aquilo, mas isso é o principal. Com certeza é um dos melhores vídeos sobre estudos que já vi

    Hey bro, I’m a 15 year old boy from South Africa and if you read this or not does not matter but I just wanted to say that it’s 11 pm in the night and while whatching YouTube I stumbled across your video. Yesterday our school locked down due to COVID and I just heard earlier today I’m COVID positive and I’m rethinking my life decisions even though I might seem weird. But I just wanted to tell you THAT IVE BEEN WATCHING YOUTUBE SINCE I WAS 7 YEARS OLD AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A USE FULL VIDEO the information and knowledge you gave me might stick with me for the rest of my life ! I realized that I was wasting a lot of my time on social media and I wasn’t cherishing moments that I had with my family. So I just wanted to thank you for uploading this video and I hope only good things pass your path from now on🤞

    It was the most useful 19 minutes and 42 seconds of my life, thank you very much, I wanted to be the same person you were talking about, but from the part I did some things wrong, and even with the same motivation. I worked all the time on motivation and I realized that this is fundamentally wrong. From your video, I learned not only this, but also many other useful lessons and things. I will save this video and try not to forget to write another comment after I see the first great success in my endeavor, or rather when I learn how to make good sites, I would like to say qualitatively, but this is after. I got a lot of information seemingly for just one video on YouTube, when I watch hundreds of them a day. I hope I will succeed, and I also wish you success in your endeavors! Thanks!

    Why does he never talk about his study methods, his course, or his grades? I think him studying for so long everyday is a result of poor study techniques. He’s not triple majoring or anything this all seems like promoting an unhealthy lifestyle.

    something tells me that we weren't put on this earth to go to extreme lengths like this just to survive/succeed. The modern world is a nightmare. Everyone deserves to spend time on different dynamic things, and not tank themselves up to study for 12 hours a day. It's really cool if this is his passion, but I really hope that we weren't forced to be this compensating just to be "productive", especially if you have a completely different passion. The modern notion of "unproductive" is completely fine and human. To everyone in the comments - don't beat yourself up over it. No hate to James, I just really hope that "having shit together" isn't the only thing that defines our worth, contribution to the world, and what we deserve to enjoy/achieve in life. Especially for neurodivergent people, people in bad households, etc. I hope we lived in a world where you don't have to go to such lengths to be inclined and focused. I hope everyone could deserve a happy life without working HARD.

      @Liana Idrisova That's good for you. Getting educated definitely is a great door opener, but I hope we weren't compelled to take in information/get better in such an inhumane rate just to deserve said opportunities in life. We deserve to relax and enjoy other things too.
