For anyone who's ever heard a motivational speech and immediately vomited, a guide to ignoring society's obsession with success Sit around, leave sh*t all over the place, drink, forget about deadlines . . . being lazy is pretty easy. The real art in being chill is when someone without any real ambition can fly under the radar, and live unscathed by the never-ending reams of self-help and inspiration rained upon anyone who just wants to watch Netflix. The magical place where doing what comes naturally keeps the do-ers at arm's length. Rather than doing less, do just enough. So screw TED Talks, Instagram images of a beach that say "Fail Better" in gold cursive, marathon training, tips for keeping plants alive, and all self-aggrandizing social media. Ninety-nine percent of people on this planet are just pretty average. We're doing our thing. Trying to get out of bed in the morning. Hey, are you awake right now? Reading a sentence? You know what? That's success in my book. Being a person is hard enough without all the pressure to be good at it.

Professional reviews

"In today's world in which everyone is being pushed to do more, do it better, and do it more quickly, all without making any mistakes, embracing mediocrity is discouraged. Emily Woo Zeller narrates this short self-help book, which emboldens the listener to revel in doing just enough to coast comfortably through life without going the extra mile. Reflecting the tone of sarcastic humor in the text, Zeller delivers a performance that is sure to delight listeners as they ask themselves, "Can I do less in life and get by just fine?" Zeller's engaging delivery is full of personality and wit. A great listen for those jaded by traditional self-improvement books. A.L.S.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
