The don’t give a fuck industry flurishes on YouTube, in books, and music using the words to get us to look. I took a couple minutes on Amazon to check my impression.

The in vogue idea aimed at convincing us to buy.
I’m wondering if knowing these titles has punched my current/with it card, Guessing no. But give the large field I play in I’m determined. But my mission is not to sort the hundred shades of fuck.
I came across this version of I Don’t Give A Fuck by Sarah Knight, on YouTube. She centers on the use of our Time, Money, and Energy. We apply our life energy to what we really care about. Her video advises us to gather up our important stuff to spend our time, effort, and money on. Do what we care about is the maxim.
What to value is easy sometimes and a deceptive twisted path at other times. Knowing what to value can be difficult. But, to look is the first step.
Knight advises us to focus on what’s important. And directs us to invest our time, effort and money there. Not profound but a useful reminder…
I have continued to ask myself, what’s important. It’s not always obvious. How about you?

Tomorrow we shall meet,
Death and I —
And he shall thrust his sword
Into one who is wide awake.
But in the meantime how grievous the memory
Of hours frittered away.

Video and Dag asks what we value and the time, energy, and money we are willing to spend to support our claims.
