WHY You Should GYST

  So I’ve (obviously) spoken about how you can get your shit together, but I haven’t yet said WHY you should do it. I’m sure a lot of it is self-evident, but some of the reasons may surprise you. You already know that I’m a big advocate of starting small, but it’s hard to start anything, no matter how minor, if you don’t really know why you’re doing it.   Naturally, you will have some reasons that are personal to you, and are particular to your specific situation.

The GYST Top Tip For A Productive Day — How To GYST As Early As TOMORROW

  Just like the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step, so too does getting your shit together. You take it one step and one day at a time.

  One of my biggest struggles with trying to improve my life relates to diet and exercise. I mean, I think everyone WANTS to be fit and healthy, but actually wanting it badly enough to put down the bar of chocolate and pull on the running shoes? Nah. But I have a child now; I HAVE to make it a priority. I can’t be the mother huffing and puffing around the place when she brings her daughter for a kick-about in the park.

How to Get Your Shit Together: The Beginning

You’re here because you want to know how to get your shit together. Or because you randomly stumbled across this website. (But I’m guessing you want to know how to get your shit together too because, frankly, who doesn’t?) It’s all too easy to want to make changes in your life, but not so easy to implement them. Or to even know where to start. Luckily for you, I’ve taken the guesswork out of that particular problem. You start here. Buckle up.
