Many think that elite athletes like me are taken care of. But that is not true, only a few like Sindhu are looked after well.
The idea was called Justin.tv. The idea behind it was, basically, to create our own live-video streaming show, like ‘Big Brother,’ about ourselves, these entrepreneurs trying to make a reality show. It was a little bit meta and we launched this show.
I like to be the normal Julian Nagelsmann. Doesn’t matter if I’m the manager of RB Leipzig or the manager of a youth team. I hope that if you ask anybody of my team in my former days or now they say ‘yes, he is still the same guy.’
Extrinsic motivations are like, ‘I wanna get rich, I wanna be famous.’… Even missionary ones like, ‘I wanna change the world with this idea.’… That’s an extrinsic motivation. And when things are hard, you’re going to be like, oh why am I doing this?
Like everything else in the league, you want to be wanted.
I like to have meetings in the early afternoon.
You have to play injury time like the 90 minutes.
I was always so engrossed with being successful that that was my worth and my identity. And then when things weren’t going well, I felt like I was worthless.
I’m like, ‘No, I don’t wanna be the next Shaq. I wanna be Kobe.’ So I always just dribbled the ball everywhere I went… It was kind of a natural thing. I don’t even work on it, honestly.
People like the feeling of access that is very raw, unedited, and inspirational.
I don’t have to be world coach of the year at some point, but I would like to be named one of the best coaches one day.
I’ve always had the theory that people like watching people.
It was just my mom, my sister and me. And from a young age, my mom always said I was like the man of the house. I really became the man of the house. And I really took that responsibility very seriously: being the man of the house, the protector.
A lot of people on the business side are really serious. But I like being able to mix content that’s me having fun.
I would be happy if I were Jesus. I’d like to fix everyone else’s problems more than my own.
I like the idea that I can make a big difference to a startup in a short period of time.
I don’t like spending money.
The original idea for Justin.tv was a terrible idea. So if something like that can eventually become successful, then anyone can be successful.
Don’t like makeup. I don’t use it much unless I go out – I think it makes you look older.
It used to be that games were more like movies where a game would come out and then people play it for two months and then it’s over.
I like the golf and the snooker, too.
We do think founders should be treated like athletes, going for gold really hard.
Many gays have a good sense of humour and they like the wit I hopefully put into my performances.
I feel like a lot of the technology that happens in gaming, starts in gaming and it goes broader than gaming.
