March 2020 Book Recommendation:

The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck by Mark Manson

Mark Manson has been a long time blogging inspiration of mine. Although some see his writing style as crude and vulgar, he does an excellent job conveying many vital messages about self-empowerment and finding meaning in one’s life.

His book, The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*cktaught me many valuable life lessons, and I find myself frequently practicing its teachings throughout my day-to-day life. This book helped me open my eyes to realizing what is most important in my life, and where I should be focusing my energy.

Mark’s overall take away message from this book is; you are going to die, because of that fact, you only have a limited amount of f*cks that you can give throughout your lifetime. Therefore if you want to live a purposeful life, you mustn’t waste energy spending that limited amount of f*cks on the wrong things. He makes this point over the chapters by highlighting five key areas one should focus on; these are: adopting radical responsibility (I talked about something similar in my latest blog post), embracing uncertainty, willingly failing, utilizing rejection, and contemplation of one’s mortality. 

My favourite quote from this book is: “Don’t hope for a life without problems. There’s no such thing. Instead, hope for a life full of good problems”.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to pursue a more meaningful, happy, less stressful, liberated life.
