People often say the key to confidence and success in life is to simply “not give a fuck.” Indeed, we often refer to the strongest, most admirable people we know in terms of their lack of fucks given.
This attitude and art is described quite well here – markmanson.net. I think its a great piece of writing and resonated with many of the ideas.
Thinking about it from the content of the workplace – in the office it’s easy to get sucked into the drama, stress, politics, appearance/image management, and so on.
But most of the times when I achieved success, felt good about it, and also felt energized at work in general – it was when I focused on just doing my job well. It was when I didn’t care about all the rest of the stuff, unless it really deserved my attention.
What do you think?
From your experience, is this a good approach?
