Don't Sweat the Small Stuff... and it's all small stuff.

On my personal development journey I came across a book called, "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff... and it's all small stuff" by Richard Carlson. I read it and really enjoyed it.  I am now re-reading it as I find myself in need of some inspiration, motivation and guidance as I continue my journey.

About the book:

"So many of us would like to live our lives in a calmer and less stressful way, and be able to ket go of our problems.  Don't Sweat the Small Stuff... and it is all small stuff shows you how to stop letting the little things in life drive you crazy.  In 136 short essays, Dr. Richard Carlson teaches us, in his gentle and encouraging style, simple strategies for living a more fulfilled and peaceful life.  We can all learn to put things in perspective by making the small daily changes he suggests, including advise such as:

  • As yourself this question, 'Will this matter in a year from now?'
  • Do something nice for someone else and don't tell anyone about it.
  • Surrender to the fact that life isn't fair
  • Remember that when you die your 'in' box won't be empty

With these thoughtful and supportive suggestions, Dr. Carlson reveals ways to make your actions more peaceful and caring, and encourages you to trust your intuitions so that you live each day as it might be your last"
