Richard Carlson’s “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff’ is one of my favourite self-improvement books. I always turn to this book for inspiration. A realistic perspective on life, the book contains interesting nuggets of wisdom. It is a must- read book in my opinion.

The book is broken down into several short chapters. This is something that I really liked about it. Meaningful short chapters are always interesting, aren’t they? Such chapters are likely to hold the attention of the reader. In fact, it becomes easy to read the book. On the contrary, long chapters are tedious and uninteresting.

Modern day life is challenging and demanding to say the least. Stress is inevitable! The neurotic pace of life is likely to take a toll on us. In this book, you will learn about practical tips, techniques and ideas to handle these challenges in a better way. You will be in a better position to handle life’s challenges. You will get the much needed motivation and inspiration.

There are chapters dedicated to different topics like expressing gratitude, expressing love and not getting worked up over trivial issues. Carlson says we tend to lose sleep over silly things. He insists that we should not sweat the small stuff because it is really small stuff. He says we need to inject more humour and alleviate stress from our lives.

Most of us let the actions and behavior of other people govern our mood. Our happiness and sadness depends on their actions. We allow them to take charge of our state of mind. This shouldn’t be the case. We need to take complete responsibility for our lives.

The author’s style of writing is likely to keep you engrossed. He uses simple words and sentences that make the book captivating. His words empower you to take responsibility for your actions and stop accusing others for your failures.

There is a beautiful chapter dedicated on practicing random acts of kindness. It urges you to be kind to people. It makes you want to do things for strangers. The matter of the fact is that we have forgotten to be kind; we have forgotten to express gratitude. This chapter will surely bring out the best in you.

I enthusiastically recommend “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” to everyone. I am confident that you will not be disappointed mainly because it is all real and not preachy.
