The book that is on fire for the New York Times Bestsellers (Advice, How-To) is chock full of great ideas and of course f**ks!

 

  1. “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.”
  2. “The more something threatens your identity, the more you will avoid it.”
  3. “Travel is a fantastic self-development tool, because it extricates you from the values of your culture and shows you that another society can live with entirely different values and still function and not hate themselves. This exposure to different cultural values and metrics then forces you to reexamine what seems obvious in your own life and to consider that perhaps it’s not necessarily the best way to live.”
  4. “Don’t just sit there. Do something. The answers will follow.”
  5. “Maturity is what happens when one learns to only give a fuck about what’s truly fuckworthy.”
  6. “It turns out that adversity and failure are actually useful and even necessary for developing strong-minded and successful adults.”
  7. “If you want to change how you see your problems, you have to change what you value and/or how you measure failure/success.”
  8. “But the problem with entitlement is that it makes people need to feel good about themselves all the time, even at the expense of those around them. And because entitled people always need to feel good about themselves, they end up spending most of their time thinking about themselves. After all, it takes a lot of energy and work to convince yourself that your shit doesn’t stink, especially when you’ve actually been living in a toilet.”
  9. “The act of choosing a value for yourself requires rejecting alternative values. If I choose to make my marriage the most important part of my life, that means I’m (probably) choosing not to make cocaine-fueled hooker orgies an important part of my life. If I’m choosing to judge myself based on my ability to have open and accepting friendships, that means I’m rejecting trashing my friends behind their backs. These are all healthy decisions, yet they require rejection at every turn. The point is this: we all must give a fuck about something, in order to value something. And to value something, we must reject what is not that something. “
  10. “Who you are is defined by what you’re willing to struggle for.”
