Most of us have probably heard the phrase that forms the title of this book at one time or another. Regardless of the source, it’s a term that’s used to suggest that not all is where it should be in our lives.

Sort Your Sh!t Out is a practical guide to help you survive and thrive when times are tough.

A transformational change specialist, the author admits at the outset he wished he had a “no-nonsense” book like this when he first realised “how badly my shit was impacting my life and those who loved me”.

“My own search for the holy grail of contentment had taken over 35 years and along the way, I had tried all sorts of possible solutions.”

As Gary Waldon states: this book is the culmination of many years of research trying to help himself, combined with professional experience to help people and organisations to break away from habits that negatively impact us all.

Everyone experiences life’s ups and downs, but Waldon focuses on what you can do to maintain a healthy mental balance “while life happens”. Using his experiences to help companies transform, along with rescuing himself from his own darkness, Waldon presents his unique Self-Help Improvement Toolkit (SH!T). It’s all about knowing, owning, dealing and managing “your shit”.

This plain-speaking paperback takes a no-nonsense approach to life and how to manage the ups and downs it brings, without losing oneself. The strategies used and insights into the working of the mind could be of benefit. It’s a perceptive, realistic journey of self-discovery.

We have two copies of Sort Your Sh!t Out to give away. To be a winner, tell us the unique name given by Gary Waldon to the toolkit that helps to maintain a healthy mental balance. Entries should be sent to [email protected] by Monday, 16 August 2021. Names of the winners will be announced in Frank Cassidy’s PS-sssst…! column on 17 August 2021.
