self-help self-care real talk


6. Just F*cking Focus! (The Must-Do List Will Change Your Life)

This week’s episode begins with a story about the time Sarah Knight filled a cat litter box with sand and hid it under her desk at a fancy Manhattan office building so she could stick her feet in it and pretend she was at the beach. What the f*ck does that have to do with anything? Good question! This week’s focus is on prioritizing­—not only the sh*t you have to do, but also the sh*t you want to do, including “me-time” and recreational activities. Sarah’s Must-Do Method is a life hack that will help you manage your day-to-day tasks much better, get your self-care in, still be able to procrastinate (responsibly!), and ultimately avoid the overwhelming burnout that caused her to turn to a litter box for comfort.   Today’s topics:   •Prioritizing by urgency •Responsible procrastination •How your to-do list is is hurting you •Turning your to-do list into a MUST-do list •The importance of “me-time” •Weekly NFG tip: “You’ve got to lobby for your hobby!”   Visit for more information and to sign up for the No F*cks Given Newsletter.
