The Suble Art of Not Giving a F*CK by Mark Manson is a life altering book for a generation of people fed the concept that “being positive” will produce a happy and wealthy life.
Sometimes life sucks, it’s unfair, you have charachter flaws, make mistakes, and you have to deal with it. Mark’s emphasis is on what your priorities are and how you define a successful life. Knowing what is important to care about and what isn’t important to care about is freeing. By giving up all of the things that aren’t important to care about, you will be happier.
The book is a pretty easy read filled with practical advise, cuss words and stories that make you laugh.
My favorite line from the book is “A F*ck must be earned. I can’t go down the street with a bucket of f*cks giving them out to everyone. If I feel that you’ve earned it, I will give a f*ck.
