Fair warning: this post contains the “F” word. A lot. This isn’t my usual fare but it’s worth it.
You only have so many fucks to give. That’s the basis of Mark Manson’s book The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fuck.
Meaning, you only have so much energy to spend on a daily/weekly/life basis. You need to learn how to spend your energy, your fucks, wisely. Don’t give fucks on little things. Give fucks on big things.
Basically, care about things worth caring about and screw the rest.
The article below was the origin of the book. It’s poignant, relevant, and lethally funny.
