Some things I found interesting -

Get your shit together by allocating time to achieve realistic goals.

“I just don’t know where to begin.” If this sounds familiar, then the first step toward getting your shit together is to consider exactly what your goals are, and when you plan to achieve them.

This is problematic because we can’t become winners if we’re constantly holding ourselves to unrealistic standards.

Get your shit together by ditching your unrealistic goals.

  • If you feel as if you don’t have enough time to meet your goals, you probably have bad time-management skills. Combat this problem by gaining a better understanding of how you actually spend your time. You can do this by timing how long it takes you to fulfill routine tasks.
  • Then, use this knowledge to create a realistic weekly schedule that contains all the things you want to do but never seem to have time for, such as learning a new skill.

Maintain your romantic relationship through a strategy of loving competition.

A big part of getting your shit together is maintaining your valued relationships.

Get your professional shit together by exuding confidence and asking the right questions.

  • When it comes to the world of work, appearing confident – even if on the inside you’re anything but – is crucial if you’re going to win the trust and respect of others.
  • Another important way to get your professional shit together is to ask your boss the right questions.

Get your health on track by prioritizing and by harnessing the power of negative thinking.

  • Your physical health goals also don’t need to be radical for them to count toward getting your shit together.

Cope with anxiety by being proactive or by strategically doing nothing.

  • Sometimes the best strategy when dealing with anxiety-inducing situations is to face the situation head-on and rip off that anxiety Band-Aid.
  • The second strategy for coping with anxiety is precisely the opposite of the first. Instead of being proactive, consciously decide to do nothing. In this strategy, you ignore the situation and hope that any problems resolve themselves on their own. This may sound irresponsible, but it’s just sensible hesitation.

Get house proud by dividing chores into 20-minute sessions.

  • The first step is to undertake a one-off decluttering session.
  • Once you’re satisfied with your efforts, the next step is to make a plan for the long-term tidiness.
  • Now that you have divided all your chores into categories, it’s time to commit to getting your shit together by making a pledge to yourself.
