Last week, my friend Jesse Itzler came to my office for the second time to discuss the release of his brand new book "Living With The Monks" on my podcast. "Monks" is the much-anticipated sequel to his NY Times bestseller "Living with a SEAL", which is one of my favorite books. The book drives so many points home about perspective and priorities.
During our conversation, Jesse discussed one particular subject that really caught my attention. When he was at the monastery experiencing the monks' way of life, he learned to let go of the stupid things he was stuck on.
This really got me thinking about some of the "important" things I always make sure to do on a daily basis. For example, I thought about how long it takes me every day to think about what I want to eat for lunch. The answer? Too long!
We all spend too much time worrying about the little things, and the stress we feel from abiding by those insignificant things ends up hurting us in the long run.
Don't be stuck on stupid. Don't be overloaded in your life. You'll have much more energy and will feel so much more efficient if you let some of the little things go.

If you're looking for a perfect Father's Day gift, I would highly recommend buying both "Living With A SEAL" and "Living With The Monks"! If you're looking for laughs and a way to change things up, these books are game changers.
