I read this book at a time in my life when I very much needed it. While Offerman becomes his own bard, recounting his travels to success, he also offers wisdoms about life. “How to live deliciously,” as it were.
Honestly, those were the parts that spoke the most to me. It was great getting to know his origin story but those nuggets of suggestions on how to live better, buttered the bread. I knew that I wanted to focus the year on good things and Offerman handed me ideas and reminders of how just to do that.
Don’t be an asshole – easier said than done. The public these days are rude as fuck and yet somehow, I should be the nice one. No promises on this one.
Find a hobby – I need to get back to woodworking or anything creative to feed the lack of creativity in my life.
Less screen time/social media – Stop wasting my life away staring at that screen when I could be making real memories or doing something more productive.
Spend more time with friends – After the last two years, I would love to dedicate more time to friends.
This is just a snack-sized sample of his offerings.
Come for his tales and leave fed with inspiration to change up your life.
