Recording Videos for Future Self
mr jimmy beast donaldson and fridman lex
I was watching this Lex Fridman Podcast with Jimmy (Mr Beast).
They talked about recording videos for your future self and recording videos for when you are dead.
Jimmy made a couple videos when he was 17 years old talking to his future self and then scheduled those videos on YouTube.
He created those videos on the same day and then just talked about where he wanted to be in 1/2/5/10/69 years.
He made these videos when he had a couple thousand subscribers and basically called his shot by saying that he better have one million subscribers 5 years from that video or his entire life was a failure (lmao). He had 50 million subscribers when the most recent video came out 2 years ago. That’s cool.
I want to do these types of videos too. So look forward to 16th January 2025, 16th January 2028, 16th January 2033 and 16th January 2050 for videos.
