Do you have too many distractions? Do you feel like you're being pulled in all directions? Sucked into arguments you don't need to be a part of? Is your life filled with physical and mental clutter, keeping you from focusing and achieving what is important? Are you a slave to social media "likes," unable to put the phone down?
This book helps get you on the right path to a fulfilling existence by encouraging you to shrug off the extremists, the energy suckers, clickbait mongers, the "douchebags," people and things you don't need to "give a wet slap about" - through the practice of "selective apathy" and the "power of meh." Put things in perspective. Take control of the limited time we're allotted on this earth - not every hill is worth dying on.
Prepare to be challenged and examine your relationship with the many things that may be getting in the way of your happiness - but in a light-hearted, casual way that doesn't preach or condescend. And why should it? After all, we only get one go-around. Might as well have fun. Enjoy!
Selective Apathy and the Power of Meh are two critical life skills this book succinctly offers sound guidance on how to effectively practice in this day and age of information overload. We are inundated daily with a host of nonsensical noise and distraction disguised as information and truth when, in reality, much of it is just useless banter of little practical value or impact on our lives. This book helps you to recognize what is of use to you, what should be of use to you, and how to filter out the burning garbage of disinformation thereby reducing stress, anxiety, and time wasted on pointless BS.
This book is well written, helpful, and thought-provoking. The author does a brilliant job breaking down the concepts into realistic events/portrayals (which are also funny at times). I like the solutions presented like I.C.E. I think it will be challenging to put selective apathy into practice at first, but doing so will undoubtedly result in a greater sense of well-being.
