SAYING ‘FUCK IT’ HELPS. IT REALLY DOES.
John & Gaia have been running Fuck It Retreats in Italy for 10 years. They wrote the international bestselling Fuck It books.
They live with their sons near the beach in Italy – spending their time walking on the beach and helping people around the world find freedom through a brilliant profanity.
WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF F**K IT
(CLICK ARROWS FOR MORE…)
We are John & Gaia. We said ‘F**k It’ to our careers in London and escaped to Italy in 2004.
We led our first F**k It Retreat in 2005.
We then wrote the bestselling F**K IT BOOKS (600,000 sold in 25 languages).
We have 1 million followers on Facebook.
All because… F**K IT HELPS… It really does. Saying F**k It relaxes us, helps us let go, do more what we please and feel more free.
Just say it now, to something that’s bothering you or causing you pain… And feel the RELEASE and the FREEDOM.

‘Face Your Fear’ Video

I’ve always had a bit of a problem with the concept of postcards. As well as the somewhat insincere sentiment of ‘Wish You Were Here’… (to which the just response should be ‘Well Why the F**k Didn’t You Ask Me To Come In The First Place Then, Eh?’), what’s with our...read more
This is the third blog post in the series of How to Do What You Love (and how important it is). In our last blog post, we learnt from a 93-year-old, that the key to a long (and happy) life is simple … DO WHAT YOU WANT. In fact, this simple invitation can help overcome...read more

A recent Gallup poll showed that only 30% of the workforce in the U.S. like their job - ‘like’ defined as being ‘engaged’ and ‘enthusiastic.’ So that means 70% weren’t engaged – ie. not enjoying their jobs. And how long do we all spend working? YIKES! In our latest...read more
I'm waiting in the queue for a teacher at one of our boys' school's parents' evening. 40 minutes so far and counting (it'll be at least another 40 mins I reckon). I use the word 'queue' (very) lightly too as we are in Italy, where you arrive at a 'queue' and have to...read more
