The self-help book for people who hate self-help books.
" No matter where you go, there is a five-hundred-pound load of shit waiting for you. And that's perfectly fine. The point isn't to get away from the shit. The point is to find the shit you enjoy dealing with. "
To me, this means that if your success is having mountain top experiences, if you don't like hiking or climbing mounties, sleeping in a tent and, or eating and shitting outside, you won't get to the top of many mountains. So if you measure your success by how many mountain-top experiences you have, you will see yourself as a failure.
It's not about just not caring about anything. It's about taking control of how we interpret what's happened to us, and how we respond. Take responsibility for wanting those mountain top experiences, and either redefine success it or get outside and start climbing.
Lasting change starts with small, consistent steps.
"Goals are good for setting a direction, but systems are best for making progress. "
"Good habits can make rational sense, but if they conflict with your identity, you will fail to put them into action."
