I've struggled with negative thinking and impulsive negative chatter my whole life. The author reminds us, in her first chapter, that complaining is identifying the problem *without* interest in identifying solutions. By planting that flag early on, she's taking the reader on an inspiring journey. I really appreciate the guiding questions, the precision of language, and the succinct, forceful, and honest tone that she takes with us; she's compassionate and empathetic to the reader, but doesn't coddle them.
I'm a huge fan of her work and would recommend this book to anyone. Thank you!
But more importantly the latter parts of the book have some solid strategies for infusing your life with positivity such as expressing gratitude, time without inputs, focusing rather than distraction, taking responsibility and being generous. These are all lessons that I've (mostly) learned from studies of Buddhism and other books, and what the No Complaints book does is seat these as responses to complaining and integrates them in a no-nonsense straightforward way.
I started reading Ms. Stewart’s blog years ago and vowed to stop complaining in my life. Like the book says, that’s harder than it sounds, especially if you are in an environment where it’s just normal. For me, that was pretty much everywhere.
I gleaned what I could from blog posts and the like and just stopped complaining. I still complain every once in a while, but I notice it so quickly that I turn into solutions focused mode really easily.
Reading the book, there are a ton of good exercises that help you to systematically look at your life, find where you are complaining, and do something about it. I found some areas of my life that were still complaints that I hadn’t realized, so that was nice to discover those and work through them.
The book is organized like a workshop and it makes sense to take time and go through it at a good pace. Some exercises will be quick, others might take a couple weeks to really make a habit.
Overall in my life, the changes have been very positive. If there was anything I wished more from this book it’s that I wish it had been written sooner. Since eliminating complaining from my life, my business has gotten better, I met and married my wife, have a kid and enjoy every minute more than I used to.
If you wholeheartedly follow Ms. Stewart’s advice, your mileage will vary, but I think you’ll find pleasant surprises await you when you give up complaining and embrace joy in your life.
