Writer and popular outspoken blogger Mark Manson gives readers a firm shoulder-shaking to emphasize not everyone deserves a gold medal. In this self-help book he argues that improving our lives is not about turning lemons into lemonade but learning to stomach lemons better. Humans come with flaws and we need to learn to accept that. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, and once we stop running and instead confront painful truths, we can begin to live better lives.
Manson makes clear there are many things to give f*cks about, but you need to prioritize. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. If you know me at all, you know I live by this: skip the minutiae and stick with what matters most!
