Mark Manson’s The subtle art of not giving a f*ck

Finally knocked this off my TBR Wishlist. Thank you library !

I loved the anecdotes throughout, both personal and historic. He’s lived an interesting life.

My favourite ideas were around:

  • Ditching shitty values for better, process based ones.
  • You are not special, aiming for mediocrity and continual improvement.
  • Responsibility/fault fallacy. I can’t remember where I’d read the anecdote about William James before, but it’s a goody.
  • Victim and Saver chic. Creating stronger boundaries by identifying and confronting entitlement.
  • The ‘Do something’ principle. Always works. Action begets more action and inspires and motivates you.
