Mark Manson was onto something when he wrote his book ‘The subtle art of not giving a fuck‘ in terms of conserving our life energy.
And, while you could accuse him of being somewhat crude, the basic philosophy gets our attention straight up. Manson’s premise is simple. Life is short. Life is precious. Make sure you focus your energy on the things that matter.
So, for me, the importance of this approach is really simple.
It reminds me to honour both ourselves and our mates, especially those that are no longer with us, and live a good life well, doing the things that matter.
Manson in his glorious brutality sums it up in his quote below by encouraging us to choose wisely and consciously where we invest our energy.
You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact. And if you go around giving a fuck about everything and everyone without conscious thought or choice—well, then you’re going to get fucked.”
