What the Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff Adventure Includes
and How it Works

 Follow along the Don’t Sweat Adventure on this blog. Each week we’ll review one chapter and adopt one of the philosophy guidelines to put into practice. We’ll keep track of our overall progress and share how the strategies have increased our ability to deal quickly and efficiently to resolve our problems.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff Adventure:

1)     Does it cost me anything?

2)     How much time will I need to spend on the adventure?

3)     What if I skip a week or get of the path?

4)     Can I invite my friends, family and co-workers to join, or create my own Don’t Sweat Adventure group?


1)     While it is recommended to obtain a copy of Richard Carlson’s book, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff…and it’s all small stuff, it’s not required. You can follow along on this blog at and can chart your progress in a journal or tablet. I like to keep a highlighter handy to highlight any passages that speak to me.

2)     As much time as you feel is necessary to gain the desired outcome that you define for yourself. Each chapter will take about 5 minutes to read. You may also comment on the blog, or follow social media on Twitter.

3)     Participating in the Don’t Sweat Adventure is not to add more stress, but to help alleviate it, so don’t sweat if you get behind. Followers can participate as their schedule allows and can always go back to cover any missed chapters.

4)     The more participants the better! I welcome groups of friends, family members, or co-workers to interact with each other to share their experiences and outcomes. 




Before you begin the Don’t Sweat Adventure, you must ask yourself a few questions and be candid with your answers: Yes or No

1)     Do you like you?

2)     Do you generally like other people?

3)     Do you ever feel stress, depressed or overwhelmed?

4)     Do you sometimes feel not good enough?

5)     Do you become frustrated or annoyed at insignificant things?

6)     Do you “come to a boil” quickly?

7)     Do you mumble under your breath, when you think no one is listening?

8)     Are you totally at peace with yourself and others?

9)     Other people’s flaws do not affect you whatsoever.

On a scale of 0 – 5, (with zero being numb – “Nothing affects me” and 5 “I’m a loose cannon”), what number are you?

Are you willing to learn and practice a better way to cope (react) to obstacles that keep you from living a less stressed life?

If you have answered yes to one or more of the questions above….YOU are a candidate! CONGRATULATIONS! You may now move to today’s message on the home page.

Stress Less,

    Some days I’m carefree and some days I am a loose cannon. Your buddy John will be so happy to see me on this journey.
