Sarah Knight is the internationally bestselling author of “The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck,” which has been translated into eighteen languages and counting and has hit bestseller lists all over the world. She has also written “How to Get Your Shit Together” and her latest book “You Do You” was released in November 2017.
A former Senior Editor for Simon & Schuster in New York, Sarah decided to make some big changes in her life. After careful planning, she quit her job and she and her husband built a home in the Dominican Republic where they have lived since 2015.
Upon moving to the DR, she began working as a freelance editor. She was then inspired by Marie Kondo’s famous decluttering book to write a mental decluttering self-help book with her newly uncovered creative energy.
Our episode today is all about how to stop apologizing and explaining yourself by using the not sorry method. Sarah gives advice on how to quit making excuses or justifying why you can’t do something and polite but true ways to say no without elaboration.
Sarah shares how to protect yourself and set boundaries to prevent ending up in a situation that will drain your f*ck budget (time, money, and/or energy.) She discusses using mental decluttering techniques to efficiently have the life you want.
Sarah leaves listeners with the advice, “Everybody dies. Your life is getting shorter every single day. This doesn't last forever, so do what you want now. Make the big life changes.”
