The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck
(2016) concentrates on living a better life by caring about fewer things. In this book, based on his influential blog, Mark Manson explains the few simple rules that will help anyone lead a happier, less stressful existence.
Self-help books and conventional life advice tells us to focus on being happy. But this suggests that you aren't already happy and that you need to change in order to live the life you want.
Ironically, the desire for more positive experiences makes us more unhappy. And the acceptance of one's negative experiences makes us happier. This is why Mark Manson suggests that the secret to life is simple – don't try.
If you care less about something, you'll do better at it. Accept your insecurities and flaws and you will build courage and perseverance. To try and avoid suffering is a form of suffering in itself.
The secret is to learn how to pick and choose what matters to you and then ignore the rest.
This doesn't mean being indifferent; it means being willing to overcome adversity for the sake of one's own values. To have the strength to push through adversity, you must first care about something more important than adversity.
Whether you realise it or not, you always have a choice about what to care about. So find something meaningful, otherwise, you'll only care about frivolous things instead.
