Warning: Strong Language The bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck and Get Your Sh*t Together, Sarah Knight, outlines her "NotSorry Method" to stop spending time you don't have doing things you don't want to do in her humorous talk. After fifteen years working in New York City's top publishing houses,Sarah Knight struck out on her own. Since then, her essay "I Quit My JobToday (And So Can You!)"- went viral, and her book, "The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck: How to Stop Spending Time You Don't Have with People You Don't Like Doing Things You Don't Want to Do", became a bestseller. The escape from corporate life and transformation into an "accidental anti-guru" continued when she and her husband moved to Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic. Sarah's new book explains how to "Get Your Shit Together: How to Stop Worrying About What You Should Do So You Can Finish What You Need to Do and Start Doing What You Want to Do." Sarah graduated cum laude with a degree in English and American Literature from Harvard University. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

What about if you’re in a relationship and the persons family is always throwing events you don’t want to go to, and your gf/bf feels offended if you don’t want to go?

This sort of thing only works if you are financially stable. So many aren't. Those that aren't have to give a f*ck or...you destroy your credit, lose your house, your car, your job, your health insurance, your health, and maybe even some of your friends. And...that's if you had any of those in the first place. This sort of talk is so insensitive to most of the world's population that she should be ashamed of herself. However, time marches on, and the future is unknown. Maybe one day she'll be forced to give a f*ck.

This lecture reminds me a book called "The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F**k".by Mark Manson, and I think the book is much better.

Sometimes we just need to care for ourselves more and not give a fk . Simply we can’t please everybody and make them all happy . Care for those who give a fk about you , caring for everybody is simply unrealistic, being too kind and giving in simply allows us to be taken advantage and get used by ungrateful people sometimes .by saying no , I feel a sense of relief off my shoulder . We don’t owe anyone anything.

When you say "No" to enough people, be prepared to be pretty isolated socially. If you are okay with that, fine, but most people are not.

This is complete nonsense! She could do all of that because of her past! She could decide to do this kind of a change because she gained a lot of money, and a lot of experience... Give us some ideas for people who have a loans in their banks because they wanted to end their studies ms. smart freedom lady!

I hate users. When someone does me wrong I just pretend they are dead and ignore them. I could care less about what they want. I really don't care about users they can F off. My abusers are dead to me.

GREAT Ted talk! Bravo, standing ovation. I'll be favoriting this one and sharing it extensively ... especially with online trolls. I see over 4,000 people gave away their f*cks because they're either addicted to playing the annoyed or offended victim, because they waste so much energy giving power to a "bad" word instead of appreciating the metaphor. Or they're giving away their f*cks because when they try to steal other people's f*cks, people are going to refuse to feed them because speakers like this educate people on how to stop giving away their energy and power (f*cks) toxic people/energy vampires/NARCISSISTS. Which in reality are just really fragile souls with incredibly low self-esteem and as far as the "Mind Barn" goes, they've hoarded every slight, perceived or otherwise and waste their f*cks on a past they can not change. HA! Who hasn't done that?! So, there's a way to get UN-stuck but only if one WANTS to. Lmao! This is too f*cking funny! I LOVE IT!
It's called adulting. 🤷

Growing up I always got told what to do now as a 42 yrs old woman I don't anymore ask for permission or any question I go for my gut and my heart but I had to learn by my self to take control back because my mom use to want all the control including who I was friends with where I was working even at 23 when others went out I had a so called curfew but when i went out I didn't listen to their curfew !

(Kind of like many Ted Talk videos) This is something pretty selfish and insulated that generally only young white people in America can get away with.
