Book summary - Deepstash

Book summary

  1. Everyone wants you to believe that the secret to a good life is to have a nicer job or a better car or a prettier girlfriend/ handsome boyfriend.
  2. You are going to die someday. Everyone you know is going to die soon. And in your short life you only have a certain amount of fucks to give.
  3. Not giving a fuck is not about being indifferent. It just means you’re comfortable with being different. Don’t say fuck it to everything in life, just to the unimportant things.

You are always choosing.

The power of choice is one of the greatest gifts we human beings possess. We are always choosing regardless of whether we are aware of it. Till we die.

When we forgo one alternative, we are indirectly choosing something else.

When we choose our struggles, we feel strong and empowered. When those circumstances influence us against our will, we often feel miserable and unhappy.

The genuine question is, what are we choosing to care about? What values are we choosing to base our lives on? What metrics are we using to measure our lives? And are those excellent choices - values or metrics?

If you constantly give too many fucks, it means that you don't have much going on in your life to give a real fuck about. Maturity is when we become selective in the fucks we give. If we give better fucks, we get better problems and better problems lead to a better life

What we consider life-problems are just the side effects of not having more important to worry about.

  • Life isn’t meant to go your way all the time, and that’s okay. It’s okay for life to suck sometimes because that’s part of life.
