Not giving a fuck.
Apparently it’s an art form and a subtle one at that.
The “careless slacker” character has been kicking around in fiction for hundreds of years. What Mark Manson’s book seems to suggest is that this stereotype is perhaps an inaccurate or, at least, incomplete depiction of a person who may have it all figured out.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck does not merely repeat the cliched idea that ignorance is bliss. This is more about conserving your fucks rather than wasting them on things that are out of your control. If you only let yourself give a fuck when you have a chance of affecting an outcome then perhaps you’ll find yourself having better days more often.
As you may guess by the title, this isn’t some boring read. You’ll be laughing while learning how to do a little self-maintenance!
