Get Your Sh*t Together by Sarah Knight

You must agree that this Get Your Sh*t Together has a very catchy title. If you draw to it, then you need some work to do on yourself like most of us. This book talks about decluttering your mind and organising your life to make life more productive yet fulfilling. Primarily focusing on work life. The overwhelming tasks at office, the pressure to meet the social expectations or the empty feeling inside at the end of the day. Sarah Knight has tackled these issues in a practice and relatable way in this book.

Get Your Sh*t Together

First part is accepting realisation that you need to get your sh*t together. Then make a strategy to do it and commuting to it. She takes you on a step by step process of doing it. Now there are different personalities and people face and respond to situations accordingly. Sarah has divided them into three categories and used the example of famous chipmunks to describe them. Theodore types who are relatively helpless. Alvin appear and cruising in just fine. But they too struggle with serious stuff like budgeting or committing to a routine etc. Simon keeps the appearances in feeling immense pressure.

Get Your Sh*t Together

In this book you will find tips and tricks according to your personality type in coping with issues. Throughout the book Sarah advocates the classic to-do list. She teaches you how to make it more productive so that you can actually get doing the things. There are ample examples, activities, tables and checklists to practise to make the point clear and relatable to readers. But, one this is obvious that things don’t change or get better on their own you. You need to get your sh*t together for your own good.

Sarah has a very informal way of writing as she takes examples for famous shows, TV ads, books etc. You will be laughing while reading this on her jokes. I usually appreciate a joke here and there to make the serious stuff a bit appealing. But I felt she often went overboard which is a buzzkill because it can lose the impact of great advice. Get Your Sh*t Together is a good read though.
