Deal with Dinner, Manage Your Email, Make a Graceful Exit, and 152 Other Expert Tricks
The Little Book of Life Skills is full of a lot of great information on things that you’ll need to know how to do in life. The book is broken down into several chapters and each chapter has various things related you should now how to do – Waking Up, Getting Places, Working Smarter, Being Productive, Getting Organized (A big one that I need help with and am actively working on!), Making Chores Easier (another one I need to work on!), Cleaning, Being Handy, Dinner, Hosting, Self-Care, Personal and Interpersonal Game, and Finishing your day strong.
Each skill subsection starts out with stating what the skill is. Some also start with a quote related to it. Then it lists the steps of what you need to do in order to achieve this skill. There’s also sections called ‘The Expert’ and ‘The Explanation’ which explains why this should be something you are actively trying to achieve in your life. There is also a “Bonus” section that has various additional tips or resources to help you out.
This seems to have a LOT of information packed into a relatively quick read. It is broken down in such a way you can do a skill a night before bed, or maybe a chapter if you want to read for a bit longer. In the end, there will at least be a couple things that you aren’t doing that you realize you can easily start actively doing them in your day-to-day life!
