    Show Notes:
    [1:00] Jordan Peterson kicks off the conversation by asking why and how Matthew McConaughey wrote his book Greenlights.
    [4:00] Matthew realized he needed to write the book himself without a ghostwriter as initially planned and dig back into his journals as a form of necessary reflection on the past.
    [6:00] Matthew’s old journals revealed their common thread through all the stories, poems, and bumper stickers. That common thread was the creation of good things in life through mindset or action “Greenlights.”
    [12:00] Jordan talks about his initial response after reading Matthew’s book and how his expectations were changed.
    [14:00] Matthew talks about his solo trips when starting to create the structure of his book. Jordan comments that this was a book written by a celebrity that did not really focus on the traditional parts of being a celebrity (very family-focused and foundational). Matthew states, “When we were editing the book, I found that the more personal the stories became, the more relatable they seemed to become, to the human condition, and that was my hope.”
    [18:00] Jordan and Matthew revisit the African trip, chasing dreams and having the same exact dream multiple times over the span of many years.
    [24:00] What was the personal impact on Matthew during his trip to Africa where he got to strip away the identity we all know him for and exist as something else? Jordan comments that very often, people confuse their reputation with who they really are, and they start to act as a representation of their reputation instead of themselves; it’s an easy trap to fall into.
    [22:00] Matthew discusses dealing with the pitfalls of fame. Matthew covers his changing relationship with his mother due to success.
    [25:00] Jordan B. Peterson asks Matthew McConaughey about some of his acting work in True Detective and playing dark characters. “How do you play a dark role very well without letting the darkness invade you?”
    [32:00] Matthew talks about the positive aspects of the sometimes tense relationship with his father and having a childhood that balanced love and hardship directed from the same people.
    [37:00] Jordan and Matthew continue talking about going deeper into the psychology of a dark character like Rustin Cole on True Detective
    [45:30] Matthew expanded on the short-term effects of initial fame.
    [51:30] Matthew and Jordan discuss the long-term effects of fame.
    [55:00] Jordan points out, “If flawed people were incapable of creativity, we would have no creativity.”
    [1:03:00] How Matthew and Jordan first became friends.
    [1:07:30] Matthew shares a comical review of his own book written as if Jordan was the one reviewing it.

I've read some reviews that his book ends (or nearly ends) with a line about how 'all lives can't matter until black lives matter MORE'...which I find to be patently absurd. All lives matter exactly and precisely THE SAME; regardless of any race, class or (insert condition here), no matter what any political mouth-piece or celebrity states otherwise....is this book full of this extreme-left SJW pandering/one-liners? If not, I'll order it and try to ignore that asinine line.

His delivery is a little hippy-dippy but ultimately his outlook on life seems to be not too dissimilar to the path laid out in 12 Rules For Life. It's great that for people who maybe won't respond strongly to Dr. Peterson's more clinical take on what makes a good life there's people like Matthew espousing similar beliefs in a different way or with different language. Hopefully should help more people get the message that life is what you make of it, hardships can be valuable learning experiences if you choose to make them so instead of choosing to complain about being a victim.

Not that I dislike either of these Gentleman but if I was fairly new to the fortune and fame like Peterson is, and I was well known for intellectual depth and wisdom like him; I can’t imagine choosing Mathew McConaughey as an example of someone you gather inspiration from? At no fault of his own, the guy is 6’2” with a square jawline, in killer shape, and has a full head of hair. I mean common, not only is he a ridiculously famous and successful multimillionaire but also has multiple families that share an abundance of love. Most people have more life struggles and learn harder lessons before they grow out of diapers than this guy has in his entire life. I’m sure he ran off to one of his several homes he owns that are scattered throughout the world. Like I said, I like both of them and at no fault of his own, is what it is but please, spare us the public accolade for arguably the most fortunate man in the country for overcoming such challenging hardships.

I think Matthew needs an update on the meaning of the word memoir, it's from the French aide memoire - memory aid, it's a tool and to be used. It's not and end-of-life statement, quiet the opposite, in order to live a full life you need to remember. I'm getting the book whatever =]8¬_D

Ok.. I've only watched 10 mins into this video for this comment, but the amount of mental gymnastics for McConaughey to describe his realizing to overcome his ego is kind of tiring.. that said, it sounds like he came to a good conclusion from his book and his musings.. but Hollywood had messed up his brain so much to talk himself into circles to come to those conclusions is mind boggling... based on this, I think the majority of actors need to seek psychotherapy on a regular basis.. but he does seem down to earth from his musings...*sigh*

Soul group 💕💕 those dreams are past lives....I know by experiencing a lifetime of coming into this planet and remembering my lives as a toddler... we fall into the subset human condition and forget the most ridiculous idea that we came from source God ...let alone be created by the non existent Which does not let you out of the consciousness that easy actually.... you either come back or go somewhere else of endless possibilities.... our energy being is and always has been.... we were the original human beings not created I was led to believe... I remember a place that was a Dali euphoria configuration of everything beautiful visually and inherent because my awakening led me back to where we are all from and that’s why we are here right now in a cyclical age where the planetary system is evolving and as it’s evolving it’s becoming like it did before and left its imprints like others that really weren’t meant to be remembered... at costs.. however it seems those that were meant to remember do and not only that remember a bigger picture than the bigger picture...if I hadn’t those experiences when I did to relate to now on so many unbelievable undeniable levels I would have lost my shit ... if I’d have kept them with me all my life and not forgotten.. for whatever reason... I wouldn’t have got this far without losing my shit ... it’s all by design.... some are remembering... everyone with a soul can not be compromisedI would have go

I think I get the gist of his book from this interview. How I found my green lights is believing that all things work in my best interest. Which brings up another belief I hold Just because I believe something it does not mean it is true. I believed Mathew was hollywood weirdo and likely a satanist. NOW I believe he maybe my brother that is over coming this world.

I look at it as the person thinking life should not exist because it can hurt lots doesn't understand themselves completely ... and thus can be Carnivorous to the point of cannibalism to the point of using children and their blood to enhance both their longevity and perceived quality of life like the ultimate drug. No! If you understand energy and human physiology and our fractal relationship to everything and everyone then we know death of an avatar is just a transition. So I believe knowledge both relieves the fear and encourages the knowledge holder ... Of course ...look at heaven and hell concepts of religion mind control. Nice talk but I personally think to air your wonderful life is not very humble ...but it is entertaining and interesting Mathew ...no doubt! Peace out gifted brothers!

I used to feel distaste for Jordan and the lies he propagates. Now, seeing the person he has become, only makes me feel sad for him. If you want to believe life is misery, pain and suffering, then these outcomes in life, which JP has experienced, will be in your future. If you want to believe life is good, benevolent and prosperous you can live free like Matthew McConaughey. The choice is yours.
