You’ll learn three simple tools for getting (and keeping) your sh*t together: 1. The Power of Negative Thinking; 2. How to balance work and fun-and save money while you’re at it; 3.

This book was great and eye opening for me. I have always been a list maker and planner but somehow got lost on the way. This book taught me how to get things done in all parts of my life, from the individual perspective to the workplace. It’s been two months now since I started implementing some of its good ideas and I’m glad I did because change is manifesting itself everyday.
Here are some of the steps you need to take to get your sh*t together:
- Define what your goals are and when you plan to achieve them.So many of us set unrealistic goals for ourselves – goals we have no hope of ever achieving. Instead, take a look at what realistic changes would make a difference in your life. Once you have a realistic goal, break it into manageable tasks and make a small amount of progress every day toward making it happen.
- Establish a better relationship with time. If you feel like you don’t have enough time to meet your goals, you probably have bad time management skills. Fight this by gaining a better understanding of how you spend your time. Then use this knowledge to create a realistic weekly schedule that contains all things you want to do but never seem to have time for.
- Maintain your relationships by being the most considerate one. Be the most helpful, the nicest one, the one who remembers the date…these small affectionate gestures expressed on a regular basis are more effective to keep our social and family connections ticking over.
- Learn how to deal with your emotional or mental health issues. Face those problems that are making you anxious.
Getting your shit together doesn’t need to be difficult, you just need to be consistent.
