Giving too many fucks

So I am reading a book called The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck (NY Times bestseller and Audible top audio book) and it is as freeing to me as the book that I read in Law School, The Slackers Guide to Law School.” Honestly, it is time to take things less seriously and focus on the things that matter. There are too many redundancy loops in my life that I need to shut down. For example, look at this loop:

1. feel like shit

2. go on Facebook and see everyone posting about how magical their life is

3. why aren’t they feeling like shit too?

4. hate myself for feeling like shit

5. rinse and repeat

See that nonsense? I am done with it and making changes. So far, it is about simple shit. For instance, I took the FB app icon off of my front screen on my phone. I don’t need that infinite-scroll crap happening in my life. What I need is to focus on what matters, not what the external world thinks of everything.

Pundits. Pundits everywhere.

What I need to do is focus on simple stuff. Eat right, finish that app I have been working on, and generally be a better father, husband, lawyer.

I am done giving too many fucks, and I am ready to focus.
