Mark Manson is an author, blogger and entrepreneur. He has published two books; “Models: Attract Women through Honesty” and his latest best seller “The Subtle Art of Not Giving F*ck.” His second book is a reaction to the self-help industry and a culture of mindless positivity that isn’t helpful for most people. His take is refreshing and profound.

His blog at has grown to over 2 million visitors and his open, transparent personality translates well to those looking for a no nonsense, yet uplifting perspective to achievement and life goals.

We discuss with Mark his entrepreneurial background, his motivations to write “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” and what he thinks needs fixing about the self-development industry.

Tidbits from the show:

  1. The book isn’t about indifference. It’s about choosing what matters.
  2. Making a ‘crap-load’ of money does not make you happy and can actually create more problems than fix.
  3. Survivorship Bias is an infatuation with persistence over success. Sometimes it’s best to quit! Success is like buying a lotto ticket and we can do things that increase the chances of it working.
  4. Pain and suffering makes for better art, but not entrepreneurs.
  5. Work through the ‘loser’ ideas to find the winners. Be open to them all.
  6. Marriage and commitment get a bad rap. It has unspoken benefits.
  7. Having an actual life outside of your business will 100% make you better in your business.
  8. In the second segment listen about the Feedback Loop from Hell. It all starts with judging yourself. Again; it’s in the second segment.
  9. There are some very important merits to negative self talk.
  10. Your feelings don’t actually matter as much as you think.
  11. Over confidence is your own certainty is also a dominant trait in sociopaths and criminals. Consider that idea before you justify anything. What if you are wrong?
  12. Curiosity is a remedy for confusion.

Any MANY more.. Listen to the episode to see what I mean.
