The surprising art of caring less and getting more

Are you stressed out, overbooked, and underwhelmed by life? Fed up with pleasing everyone else before you please yourself?

It's time to stop giving a f*ck.

This brilliant, hilarious, and practical parody of Marie Kondo's bestseller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up explains how to rid yourself of unwanted obligations, shame, and guilt--and give your f*cks instead to people and things that make you happy.

The easy-to-use, two-step NotSorry Method for mental decluttering will help you unleash the power of not giving a f*ck about:
Family drama Having a "bikini body" Iceland Co-workers' opinions, pets, and children And other bullsh*t! And it will free you to spend your time, energy, and money on the things that really matter. So what are you waiting for? Stop giving a f*ck and start living your best life today!


I decided to pick this up after watching a TED-talk with Sarah Knight and really liking the way she presented herself and her ideas.

Unfortunately the book itself couldn't quite live up to my expectations. While Sarah's theories were very interesting, I found it hard to relate to the things/concepts Sarah herself decided to no longer give a f*ck about, and therefore couldn't quite figure out how to apply it to my own life.... or perhaps I'm just fortunate enough that I don't give many unwarranted f*cks when it comes to things, friends and family :-D

Either way, I'm glad I read it, as it did provide some useful tactics (e.g. the NotSorry method), but it probably won't have as large an impact on my life as I'd hoped after watching the TED-talk (which can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwRzjFQa_Og).
