Don't Sweat The Small Stuff

I bought a copy of Don't Sweat The Small Stuff... and it's all small stuff when it was first published 14 years ago - and I still pull it out every few months to remind myself. 

Here are a few of Richard Carlson's 100 ideas from Don't Sweat The Small Stuff...

2. Make Peace With Imperfection.
Accept yourself as you are - and accept what you have and what you don't have.

16. Ask Yourself the Question: "Will This Matter a Year from Now?"

21. Imagine Yourself at Your Own Funeral.

22. Repeat to Yourself: "Life Isn't an Emergency."

26. Set Aside Quiet Time - Every Day.

93. Give Up on the Idea that "More Is Better."

97. Mind Your Own Business.
