    It's totally fine to give your pov and have a healthy discussion going on, but this seems more like "Here's what I know, here's what I'm convinced of, you can add one sentence if you want, before I tell you more on how I relate to this situation"

    Not meant in a bad way, absolutely appreciate you putting out hard content for years, but it's also a huuuuge part of self-esteem and self-awareness to be able to put yourself back in times, to not be the center when you're in a format (CONTEXT) that NEEDS somebody else to be the center.

    You had the chance here to dive deep into a genius mind, but were too busy talking before actually listening to be able to dive deep

    Pleeeease understand the context of an interview, and that everything is absolutely fine even when you're not actively talking. It might be a good start to try taking a breath when you feel the need to interrupt.

    Let's make this a top comment so he can read it in a positive way peops. Take care y'all

  2. Gary is in need of a “young Jamie of Joe Rogan type figure” that can aid him in selecting the best questions whilst asking the right questions which would transform an interview like this dramatically for the better. Hey I’m only offering solutions. I love what you do Gary, but damn do I have some great ideas about things you could do to boost revenue for the long haul with your platform.

  3. Humans project their past onto their future, then go about creating it. Something as simple as becoming aware of that can break that loop and open up this beautiful void/blank canvas in front of you to build a future however you choose. Thank you for sharing this man. Love a bit of Southern wisdom. (Even if it was you talking over him the whole time lol)

  4. Love the analogy here. It can be so easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day routines, the mundane, and monotony. The hardest thing is trying your hardest every day, see absolutely no results from it, but go EVEN HARDER the next day. That is literally one of the hardest things to do. But that's what separates true champions from the average. Keep pushing. Your time will come.

  5. He interrupts a lot but I think its because he finishes their thought through his understanding and context. its irritating but also incredible to watch how he is able to finish other peoples thoughts in his mind and walk onto the next subject, though it ends up leaving us behind lol.

  6. Brutal listen. I love Gary and his content but for someone who prides himself so much on “self awareness” to not recognize his interviewing flaws and fix them is tough.

    If there’s ever someone to just give open space to and let him cook it’s mcconaughey

  7. At 26:10, I would have loved to hear Mathew finish is story of the transition from Rom-Com to more serious roles… But Gary derailed his thought process. I love interviews like this but hate getting the rug pulled out from under me. I feel like Sheldon on Big Bang when Amy wouldn't finish something that was expected like a sentence or song or the Jack in the Box and stopped the Jack just before it popped up. Gary should watch that episode.
