I was feeling very overwhelmed and finding it hard to get it all done. At times, helpless and depressed that I couldn’t seem to get it together. I can’t remember what I searched for exactly, but I’m so glad I came across a book that changed my life, How to Get Sh*t Done.
It’s one of those books, you will remember forever. I have a list of those here. At least in my experience, it was a hard wake-up and one I hope I don’t forget. The book shows you how to develop a schedule, but not in the traditional sense. It’s more about why we don’t need to do all the extra stuff we subconsciously and literally put onto ourselves. Obvious answer to how am I going to do it all? Don’t do it.
The author, Erin Falconer, is not suggesting you be careless with responsibility and blatantly not do what’s needed of you. She craft-fully explains to women readers (or listeners in my case) that we put too much on our to-do list and unconsciously try to carry out what society has projected onto us as women. The more we do, the more we can get done.
This is a must read!! I have listened to it several times and refer back to it often. I respect it immensely and the author for being transparent and the approach to stop doing everything so we as women can achieve anything.
