Enjoy an Excerpt:

Don’t Overthink Everything

Don’t spend too much time analyzing or rehashing things in your head.

Overthinking can rob you of the present and create undue stress and anxiety you don’t need. If you find yourself mentally besieged by something stressing you out, go for a walk to help clear your mind.

It’s Okay to Fail

The average young adult goes through five or six career changes before age thirty. It’s okay if something you’ve dreamt about falls through. Perhaps you were meant to walk a different path. It doesn’t mean you’re any less unique or special. It means you’re growing and about to embark on a different journey than you fantasized about as a teen. And that’s okay. It’s a normal part of life experience.

Failure is a good teacher and a powerful motivator. James Cameron started as a truck driver, and Harrison Ford was a blue-collar carpenter. J. K. Rowling was a teacher and single mom on welfare. Adam Driver got turned down when he first auditioned for the Juilliard School; he joined the Marines, and two years later, when he reauditioned for Juilliard, he got in.

Learn from Your Mistakes

Inevitably, everyone messes up. Despite how together or entitled people might act, nobody knows what they’re doing when they first launch into adulthood. Everyone starts as a fish swimming in the same ocean against the same current. As the Alanis Morissette song goes, “No one’s really got it figured out just yet.” Making mistakes is essential to learning and growing, and it’s how we evolve.


My Thoughts:

Adulting: The Ultimate Cheat Sheet is such a great book! I was very pleasantly surprised with all the detail that went into each of the various categories. This book is not only perfect for a young adult starting out on their own but also for grown adults who could use a few tips and tricks to solve some of their issues. 

Full of excellent examples on how to do daily living routines as well as planning for the future. Outside the box ideas for when you are in a pinch, and just overall clever ideas that I am jealous that no one told me about when I was just starting out.  I wish I could give this one more than 5 stars because it is deserving of more.

My rating: 5 out of 5
