    Schlatt. The fact you're giving out this truly mature, sage advice/wisdom, whilst also having my (completely dead) channel as an "Inspiration" is top tier. I like to think the few people that have ever gone down that rabbit hole of seeing my peak 10yr old CoD content have had a real roller coaster ride of emotions.
    I think my problem is that even if I spent the time getting my room to like 70F, I'd realise I left the ice cube in the freezer.

      IME I think this is where being present comes in. Schlatt/Atomic Habit's advice here isn't "work and never ever check in on how things our going" the advice is more "work and check in with yourself and your goals frequently, but DON'T expect to see results right away and don't always look at one measurement". In the ice cube example, you should be looking at the cube, the room temperature, moisture, air pressure, everything, but do this knowing that the actual goal (melted ice) could take a long time to start moving.

      @theweeklyslap I'm doing good.
      For what it's worth, I only ever made videos when I was a young guy, trying to distract myself from the daunting task of finding my place in the world. Just the idea of making a few other people laugh was a good enough bonus for me.
      So I gotta say, it feels almost surreal seeing myself listed as an inspiration to anyone, and I'd be lying if I said it didn't make my room feel a degree or two warmer - so who knows...maybe the inspiration will come full circle, and i'll dare to click that upload button again... I'm pretty sure there's still an ice cube somewhere with my name on it.
      Keep Inspiring Big Guy (but also... #CelsiusGang)

    Thanks for this Schlatt, I'm can kinda relate to this situation, I'm taking this topology class I'm really trying to pass but have been struggling and am probably not gonna pass at this point. But I'm gonna keep trying anyways and if I don't pass, I'll just retake it and use everything I have learned this time around to help me that next time round

    I recently finished the book "Atomic Habits" by James Clear. Schlatt, you put it perfectly. It is the little things that make the big difference in the long run. Seeing someone achieve some huge goal makes people think that it just takes one day or one hard effort to make change. When in reality, it is the small things that count.

      Is anyone else annoyed by how repetitive these comments are? No disrespect and I always like seeing how the Weekly Slap has helped people with their struggles, but it's a shame how no one really talks about the content of the video and given how unmethodically Schlatts uploading schedule on this channel is, we'll never stop seeing the same comments over and over again

    If you’re struggling with the idea of invisible progress, I’d recommend creating a checklist of tasks you need to complete to reach your goal. These tasks should be small and manageable, both to act as a roadmap forward and to display, specifically, what you’ve already accomplished. If you don’t _know_ the steps you need to take to reach your goal, frontload that research. It is essential you have a solid understanding of the bigger picture before looking at your goal on the atomic level.
    Instead of saying “okay, now I need only practice every day for two years and I will be able to play this challenging piano piece!“ or “I will start running first thing in the morning until I can run a sub five minute mile!” break your goal down into bite-sized pieces: “first I will learn this really easy piece, then this slightly harder one, then this slightly harder one, etc, until I have the skillset to play this extremely difficult piece” or “first I will get up on Sunday mornings and go for a walk, then I will get up on weekend mornings and go for a walk, then weekdays too, then going for a sped up walk, then going for a jog, then a sub eight mile, then a sub seven, etc, until I can run a sub five mile.”

    Schlatt, this came at the perfect time. A week ago my girlfriend of 2 years left me for someone else. And I almost took my own life a few days ago. However, the more I look back at all of it I could definitely just improve myself as a person. Physically and mentally. Thank you Schlatt, I've been watching these videos for 5 years and you will always be one of my favorite youtubers no matter what.

    This was insanely well timed. I’ve been going back and forth with the fact that I feel pressured to go to college, but everything I want to do takes me down the less stable path of dropping out and giving it my all, which kind of scares me. I know life isn’t a movie where dropping everything to pursue your dreams just works out because you gave it your all, and sometimes I think my all won’t be enough and that I should stay on the beaten path and graduate college for a degree I don’t want, because I don’t think I have it in me to “melt the ice cube.” But more recently, I’ve started thinking that I don’t care. I’d rather try forever to do all the things I love than pursue somebody else’s dream just because I might make some money faster. It’s a scary thing to pursue your dreams. It takes a lot of mental strength, some confidence I’ve struggled to find, and a lot of honesty with yourself, but I think I’ve finally come to a point where I can turn myself around and try everything to do the things I love to do. Thanks Schlatt, I think your videos are having the exact effect that you wanted them to have
    Edit: I realize this almost makes it seem like I plan to drop college and go fully into chasing a dream as far as I can take it. To be clear, I’m going to take this seriously, I’ll get as much knowledge as I can from college and get my foot in the door on pursuing my interests while I’m there, and once (or if) I get decent stability out of it and it seems livable and expandable as a business endeavor, only then will I go all in.

    • ABomm
      ABomm 2 months ago

      If college is an opportunity for you, I would seriously consider it. While it might be a huge investment of $, it's not as big of a time investment as you think. College is a great place to try something risky, meet like-minded people, and if it doesn't work out... you have a degree to fall back on. Look at a bunch of 'successful' people's lives, many of them went to college and dropped out when they found that their time in school was not worth it, many people finished their degrees and many people met their future business partners in college. It's not a waste and it can be a great catapult / safety net into whatever you choose to do.

    Atomic habits is one of the best books I've ever read. The biggest take away I got from it was to just start small and slowly build up whatever habit you want. If you want to read, set a small goal for yourself. Read a page a day. Once you're good at that, bump it up. Go to the gym just once a week and go from threre. Little bits of improving yourself will melt that ice cube. Thanks for coming back Schlatt

    I’m a music major in college. Me and all my colleagues could really learn a lot from this video. Our juries (playing finals) are coming up and I think everyone’s so hung up on the small details that they don’t see that they’ve still learned these hard pieces to near perfection. Thank you Schlatt, I needed to hear this and I will pass this message on to my friends who need to hear it

    I normally don’t comment but these two videos hit at the perfect time in my life. I’m 21 and in college and I left everything my home, my friends, and family in the pursuit of becoming a doctor. It’s hard to work day by day and not seeing the fruits of your labor especially when your expectations are high can really mentally and physically drain you. However, eventually things do gather momentum and it becomes more second nature whether that’s Clip-Share or physics 😊 I’m not sure if this happens to most but these last two years I have also felt like I’ve lived more life than I have in my entire childhood and adolescence. Time goes by so fast that every night I stare at my ceiling and have whiplash of how much has actually happened, what I have already accomplished, but most of all what’s left. Anyway it’s just nice to know that I’m not alone in these thoughts good luck kiddos we got this.

I appreciate that you’re trying to help others in some sort of way and can’t wait for more content here… Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving/day!

    I just wanted to comment and say that I thoroughly enjoy these videos, and I'm happy that you are making more. I also wanted to request that you could also update the Spotify playlist with the more recent episodes, as tend to listen to these episodes while I'm on the bus, or walking from place to place, and it is much more convenient to listen through Spotify. No worries if you dont, do whatever makes sense to you.

    He put into words everything that I've been thinking in the past few months. Everyone is capable of whatever they want to do, but the people that follow through on their aspirations are the ones willing to put in the time to do so.
    I started making videos in 2016, but only recently did I find any true success. It is a tough road that you have to go down, but the discomfort of trying and working hard will always be more bearable than the pain of wasting your potential.
    To whoever reads this comment: You can achieve your goal if you are willing to work hard and constantly improve to hone your craft.
    You got this.

    Thank you Jschlatt the timing couldn’t be better. I almost quit my career as an automotive tech just cause I invested so much of myself but still couldn’t see the progress I had made or had any tangible results. It took my boss and my peers to remind me how far I’ve come and how close I am to earning what I feel I deserve. I got so frustrated and burnt out that I couldn’t see the respect I earned from my peers or the quality of work I put out or the promising future my boss saw for me. Thanks again Jschlatt, this video helped cement my resolve to continue on my career.

    Ya know Schlatt, this was very insightful for me. I've never really thought about self improvement like this, but the analogy makes perfect sense. I'll hold onto this video and this analogy you've made, in case I forget how to melt the ice. I really need it since I feel like I've been in a sort of rut and trying to figure out how the hell I'm gonna get out of it. Never did I ever think you of all people would have the perfect answer to my problem. So, thank you. I hope I can find comfort knowing that the room is heating up as long as I'm doing the work to heat it up. The results will only come later.

    Really loving to see this channel back, I used to listen to these videos back in 2019 and they really helped me out.
    This video was great too and honestly just the thing I needed to hear as I've been on the fence about trying to go for a low acceptance rate job and have pretty much given up trying to be a streamer. Especially since everytime I start something it feels like I hit a wall and don't make any progress.
    But this video was severely inspiring and the temperature way you told it really made sense and makes me want to keep on trying to do those things, you really opened my eyes to the bigger picture.
    Thanks for what you do big guy, you have such a great and easy way of approaching topics which makes them more simple to understand, and makes it more motivating in the process o7

Please never forget what you’ve done for me schlatt you gave me purpose again in a dark hole you guided me through darkness, thank you.

    Atomic Habits is a great book, I also just read the War of Art and it was amazing. The author talks about how to measure your own success and how to think about work and not base your worth on external factors like numbers and stuff. 80% of the book is incredible and then 20% he talks about praying to Greek gods for success (not kidding) but it’s a great read

A couple months ago, I performed a dream song of mine to play live in front of 100 people for a school show. This video has helped me remember that consistent improvement and work I put in to get skilled enough to play that show. I am now feeling much more positive and motivated to keep getting better and better. If I make it in the industry, get in contact with me and I'll send you free tickets to my show man, no problem.

But seeing these videos motivates me to keep going and remember to keep trying even when it hurts or feels like shit. I hope this will be when I finally take it serious enough to change since I've been 23 for 2 months, and I want to make a real change in my life. Thanks for everything you do man I really appreciate it. Much love

    I can’t say enough how much I needed this today. The holidays have made me think about my ex a lot more, and it’s been hard getting over her and being better-vids like these remind me to keep going, so thanks Big Guy. 👍

    I missed these so much Big guy. I remember 2 years ago I wrote to theweeklyslap email complaining about life and my situation, seeking advice and help. I have come a really long way now, not where I want to be but proud about not being where I used to. Thank you so much Schlatt - huge fan :)

    The ice cube analogy genuinely helped me with my motivation. I’m pushing really hard at Twitch right now, being a streamer has always been a dream of mine. And it’s kinda the last one left I can pursue. Thinking about it as an ice cube like that actually makes me feel a lot better about my progress. Sure I haven’t gotten too far, but I’m starting to get more audience interaction. And it’s pretty cool. I gotta take it 1 person in chat at a time.

    This makes me miss when I did have time for content creation and saw quick improvement. It was really fun too. Sadly though, one day work and school took away that time and my growth has become stagnant, although I try to do a little passion project every now and then. With that being said, I think I’m gonna try to take time this winter to create one thing I’m proud of. Thank you for inspiring me Schlatt. This channel has always been one of my greatest sources for late night self reflection lola

    This actually makes a lot of sense!! I’m currently trying to recover from anorexia. And although I am “getting better” I feel very stuck and seem to be making no progress. This video helped a lot with putting my healing journey into perspective! I just bought the book for my phone so I can read it between classes lol. Thank schlatt and hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving 🫶

    how do start the improvement process if you try and cant get yourself to actually act on it. the sentiment it takes time feels hollow when you cant get yourself to do anything though saying it takes time is not wrong, but if you cant do the thing that takes time what do you do.

    Another thing that helps me when I’m working towards something and struggling that I tell everyone is that regardless of the end result, be proud of the effort. Lesser people would have quit after one fail but you’re still trying, and that in itself is an achievement.

    This is so motivating. I've been learning VFX and 3D animation for a while now and its rough sometimes because it feels like theres a million things I need to learn. But now I can think of the ice cube. Every project gets me closer to my goals. Thanks Schlatt, this was super helpful

  • Smoke

    Very thoughtful metaphor, thanks for bringing in the outside source to help us think about the problem at hand. I just wish something could be done to kickstart me into like getting stuff done to work towards the goal. Procastination is becoming really big for me as college continues, and I find myself falling behind more and more as the semesters move on. It's like I'm lacking the willpower I used to have in highschool these days, but the good news is I'm only a sophomore so I still have a little time turn things around. I just need to figure out how

    That's a great allegory with the ice cube, loved it, but using a measuring system in which it melts at 32 is just outrageous.
    Jokes aside that's some really good eye-opener about our inability to keep track of progress sometimes, thanks for that Big Man

    I really loved listening to this and it really does motivate me to keep myself on being consistent. I want to be a youtuber like any other basic person lol. You, along with a lot of creators I've watched growing up as a kid brought me to where I am. I promise I will be consistent on melting that ice cube, I am not sure how well the adventure will be but it is something I have always wanted to do and something I am committed on. Hopefully one day I will be in a position like you where I get to tell the "melting ice cube" message to someone and hopefully that someone will do the same to the next person, then to the next.
    I will grab two ice cubes in the room with me, so I don't starve to death in the room because I don't think we will have food. Anyways I hope you have a bless day! Looking forward to your next video!

    That ice cube analogy really hit me I was gonna start streaming after getting some success off a clip channel of a popular streamer (figured I got lucky just like ya said some people feel) and immediately hit a wall with what type of content I wanted to do this is definitely a eye opener and a way to put how I feel into words thanks big guy 💙

    Thanks big man I'm a cross country runner and I'm on my way to the most important meet of my life. I've been doing this sport for 6 years now and this year I finally had my ice cube melt. I'm on varsity after 5 years of middle school and Jv. With my time going down by 3 minutes and our team getting a state win 2 years in a row and this year I was on that state winning team. But people keep asking what happened and how I got my Ice cube to melt. It took years of hard work but it's finally payed off.

    I really love this one Big man! The part on the book that you mentioned reminds me of our beloved ideological study called "The old fool who leveled the mountain" or in our languages title "Ang matandang hangal na nagpatag ng bundok"
    Where it has been mentioned that working things out isn't impossible and it does really take time, even a lifetime to be able to get to wherever you want to be, but in our term that is to have the revolution that will give our country and our people the true freedom that we DESERVE.

    This came at a perfect time for me. I just fell weeks behind my uni work and felt doomed to fail, yesterday I spoke to my tutors and worked out a plan to catch up. It feels like an insurmountable amount of work, but like you say day by day you can chip away at that ice cube. Love ya Schlatt, and thanks for doing these again.

    Schlatt I love these videos. They always help me through rough times. Yesterday I just found out a family member I was very close to died in a very not-peaceful way. She either died on New Years Eve or right when it was New Years day. She unfortunately drank herself to death and was very sick. Watching these videos help me feel better and help me get out of bed in the mornings. I’ve been watching your stuff for a few years now. Since I was 14 or 15 and now I’m 18 and finishing up highschool. Love ya Schlatt ur awesome
