WARNING: I am going to say the F word in this email. If this offends you, please stop reading. We are probably not compatible at this point. I appreciate you, who are you are and your boundaries – stay strong with them. Me, I say the F word and I am cool with it.
WHAT DO YOU GAF ABOUT?
Super popular term these days right? What do you give a f#$k about?
My partner has a t-shirt from our local co-op that says Local AF set against a picture of the state we live in. Not our home state, but the state we live in. It symbolizes where we get our food from. Because, we GAF about our food.
We toss this phrase around a lot lately…and like so many, it has become diluted. Because to truly GAF about something is significant.
I mean we only have space for so many fucks to be given in our world before the fucks we give become too many.
HOW MANY THINGS IN YOUR WORLD ARE YOU GIVING A FUCK ABOUT THAT YOU NEED TO STOP GIVING A FUCK ABOUT?
Where do you really need to and want to invest your fucks?
I recently read “The life changing magic of not giving a f*ck” by Sarah Knight and loved every word. Totally recommend you read it. Her approach is similar to what I developed in aligning priorities – the tool I crated to help people focus on what matters most to them in creating life they love.
It is similar in that the focus is on doing what you want to do, not what you think you should do. There is a HUGE difference in doing what you want to do over what you think you should do when it comes to energy investment aka fuck investment.
I particularly love the idea of a fuck budget: setting up a number you have to give and when they are all gone…sorry fellas, no fucks here.
I sped through the book, eating up the words and concepts and it felt instantly at home in my psyche. In part because I already philosophically aligned 100% and in part because I needed to read it in that way to go even deeper with the energy. Maybe you do too: get your copy here from amazon, or check your local library.

I am a certified personal and executive coach ruthlessly focused on helping people live awesome lives. I spent a large chunk of my life pursuing other people’s ideas of success and while those experiences were sublime in some cases, they weren’t the “more” I was seeking and I just never felt full. In 2011, I made the commitment to live life on my terms and everything changed. The life I love today was created and I am here to share and teach you exactly how to do the same for yourself.
