THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F*CK
A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
Mark Manson (born 1984) is a professional blogger, entrepreneur, and former dating coach. Since 2007, he’s been helping people with their emotional and relationship problems. He has worked with thousands of people from over 30 different countries.
He is a writer par excellence whose perspective on life has been a boon for many people who have been struggling with life choices. The Subtle Art of not giving a f*ck is one of his renowned bestsellers.
The book has a sardonic take on the preconceived notions of perfection entailing the human society. We are aiming for perfection while we fail to celebrate our flaws. We often fail to glorify small victories in our failed attempt at caring too much about everything. The book is a slap on the society that teaches us to extol flawlessness while the true essence of life is not about giving a f*ck about more; it’s about giving a f*ck about less, giving a fuck about what is truly important in life. The lesson that Mark Manson wants to drive through with this book, is the importance of prioritizing your f*cks; you can’t be responsible for everything, it’s a disease that will slowly eat you away from the inside and spiral you into the rabbit hole. Another flaw that the book throws light upon is the craving for validation that surmounts each one of us today. We end up doing things for pleasing others and not ourselves and that slowly drains away our mind , it’s a form of self sustaining guilt that slowly erodes our conscience. Hence, if you are looking for a new perspective on life; then then this Manson masterclass is your guiding light.
Celebrate life, take a step back and retrospect ,for life is not a list to tick away. Put your imperfections on a podium, wear it like an armor and no one can use them against you. Learn to cherish life, for those you marvel at the glories of the world are seldom weary of life. Be curious and a lot more kind. Life is never going to be what you want it to be, it’s about making the most of what it is that determines who you really are. So save your fucks for the moments that define you and not the world, subtly off course.
