The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck — Takeaways
- We have limited fucks to give in life. Giving a fuck about every small thing means lesser fucks available for the big things. Mindfully pick what you want to give a fuck about.
- Embrace negative experiences. Problems are essential to give a sense of meaning to life. Instead of aiming for life without problems, aim for life with good problems. The pain you choose to sustain defines your life.
- Give up the grandiose idea about how unique you are. The vast majority of your life will be mundane and it’s okay. Remove yourself from judgment and lofty expectations so you are free to fail and grow.
