Enta Wonders about "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Bleep"
It is perhaps the greatest global crisis to directly affect our lives. Businesses are shut down, people are scared, and hoarding of silly items it rampant. But in the midst of it all, we are all at home, with our families, and perhaps it is our greatest opportunity.
With the daily tasks of showering and getting dressed seemingly optional, and commuting time completely eliminated, it seems we have time. Time to self reflect. Time to spend quality time with our children. Time to re-connect with our spouses. Time perhaps to read a book.
I chose to share some of the highlights of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Bleep" by Mark Manson.
"The desire for a more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And paradoxically, the acceptance of one's negative experience is itself a positive experience."
So the key to happiness is perspective. We are defined by what we are willing to struggle for. Acceptance of adversity, and shifting our values to care about something greater than adversity is how we "roll with the punches".
I can think of no greater opportunity to grow right now. We are faced with a radical shift in how business is conducted. Many of us have kids at home and we are trying to balance the role of professional, teacher and spouse all in the same day.
So my hope is that inspiration such as this type of book will cause you to pause and be grateful. Maybe to laugh. We're all in this together. How we come out the other side is a choice.
As they say, "Choose wisely..."
