Episode 054 - DDWT
The Thursday Thesis - 29/06/2017
This week, to celebrate The Thursday Thesis’ first birthday (Happy Birthday, baby) I’d like to share one of the wisest principles of happiness I’ve ever heard. I can’t claim to have originated it, though I wish I had: I got it from my friend and mentor Peter Thomson – the hugely successful author and trainer.
You can find out all about Peter at www.PeterThomson.com or watch his take on the core idea of my next book Elephant Sandwiches at http://www.neilcowmeadow.com/testimonials.html
Peter’s diamond of wisdom – even better than a pearl – was this: DDWT.
DDWT – what’s that all about?
Don’t Deal With Tossers.
Simple, isn’t it?
To put it another way - decline to work with, live with, associate with, anybody who makes you
Because there’s no amount of money that you can be paid that can compensate you for being made to feel miserable by someone else.
Though Peter gave me that gem as a maxim for business, I think it applies to every area of life.
Don’t whine about your idiot boss, your cretinous co-worker, your abusive partner – yada, yada, yada - give ‘em the finger and walk. This also goes for those dysfunctional half-wits and preening wannabees on unreality TV: fire them - DDWT!
Life is short – too short – so why agree to be made miserable by someone else whilst you’re still alive?
There are 7.5 BILLION people on this planet – it’s not as though there are no other people you could be with.
In work, in life, in love, and in general, DDWT: Don’t Deal With Tossers.
You know it makes sense, don’t you?
