Very stereotypical self help nonsense book. One minute saying figure out what you want and figure out how to get it. The next talking about how you should just tell the universe what you want and wait for it to appear. Then literally encouraging you to go into debt following your "passions" knowing if you want it bad enough it WILL happen.

When she first started talking and ideas being living creatures talking to you, I almost turned it off and refunded my money to get a better book. I like books that state facts and give statistics for these kinds of things rather than tired out phrases that make you feel good for a moment but don't actually work. However I did find most of the stories funny and we she isn't spouting nonsense she does make good points about how to stay inspired.

At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

Loved the overall theme, but some of the stories weren't very good to me and seemed to drag on. I knew they had a point to make so I stuck them out, but found myself yelling in my head "just get to the point already! I don't care about these people". But others were very engaging/inspiring and the end gives you a kind of guideline on the to implement everything he's talked about.

Finally, a housekeeping and organizational system developed for those of us who'd describe our current living situation as a "f--king mess" that we "really need to get around to fixing one day". Unf--k Your Habitat is for anyone who has been left behind by traditional aspirational systems - the ones that ignore single people with full-time jobs, people without kids but living with roommates, and people with mental illnesses or physical limitations. Most organizational books are aimed at stay-at-home moms and people who seem to have unimaginable amounts of free time.

I had high hopes for this book as she shortly went through all the different reasons why someone doesn't want to or can't clean. Even agreed when she said there is still an existing stigma that it's woman's work, but it didn't need an entire chapter on systematic oppression! I skipped through after it had gone on way longer than most and tried to keep enjoying while I cleaned. But I can sum up the ENTIRE book in 1 sentence. Do bursts of work, break for half the amount, adjust length to personal needs. That is the only advice she ever gives. Everything else is standard "You can do it!" with the word fuck thrown in to sound edgy and ride the coattails of Mark Manson.
