we're doomed. All anyone cares about is attention and clout. Do anything to stay relevant once the attention is gained. attention is currency. Money is the outcome and yet it still is an everlasting hole due to not knowing that we already are. It's a strange cycle but it's okay. It takes time to understand it all. Im guilty too, I used to be an ego driven attention hungry guy. Im Not perfect but these days I want no attention and im grateful for that.

I'm incredibly disappointed that you would have such an open racist on your show. I've been following you since you've been online. You platformed an anti-American, anti-semite racist. simply appalling. I was about to pull the trigger on your coaching program, but, with this, no way. you need to research what your guests say, and not give such hateful people a platform. disgusting.

The claim that eating meat causes heart disease and type 2 diabetes shows Mr. Buettner is not speaking from a place of true science but of a personal agenda.

Why should we go to a gathering that we already know it's gonna be awkward?

Phillip Gold

It seems to me that popular dating sites such as are safe because they have algorithms to thoroughly check profiles. This process minimizes the risk of encountering fake accounts, because that's what many people are afraid of. I have already met on this dating site and I can confirm that all the people here are real. This is a safe environment to find love.

Thank a lot, This is so helpful💙

Thank you Jay, this procrastination has been an obstacle in almost all starts during my life. What I noticed is its relation with age, i.e. the older I get, the bigger procrastination I experience. Second, the proc. relationship with profession! I mean the higher educational level, the more perfectionism, bigger doubt, and ... The both result in more often give-ups! Do you confirm?
