Ep. 102 – Sarah Knight – Bestselling Anti-Guru on Not Giving a F*ck

Share

  

Sarah Knight is the internationally bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, which has been translated into more than twenty languages and has hit bestseller lists all over the world, including in the US, Canada, England, Germany, Italy, and Poland. The sequel, Get Your Sh*t Together—a continuation of her crusade to promote “mental decluttering”—was on the New York Times bestseller list for twelve weeks and is also being published worldwide.

In 2017, she delivered a TEDx talk called “The Magic of Not Giving a F*ck” at TEDxCoconutGrove in Miami, Florida, which has now been viewed more than 3 million times.


And in November 2017, the third book in the “No F*cks Given Guides” series—You Do You: How to Be Who You Are and Use What You’ve Got to Get What You Want—was published in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, with other countries to follow.

As a senior editor with several major publishing houses in New York, for fifteen years Knight worked with authors such as Jessica Knoll, Gillian Flynn, Chris Cleave, Jen Kirkman, Emily Nagoski (future guest on the show), Jay Rayner, James Lee Burke, and many more. In 2015, she left corporate life behind and moved with her husband from Brooklyn to the Dominican Republic. She no longer gives a f*ck about winter.

I invited Sarah to be on the podcast after listening to her three books on Audible. Not only does Sarah have her books available on Audible she also narrated them. Her style drew me right in. While at times listening I found myself getting annoyed at her message. Ultimately, I realized my annoyance was because she was completely right and it was something I needed to examine in my own life.

I was honored when she said yes to being on the podcast and hope you enjoy our conversation and honestly, if you need a life kick in the ass this book series will help you get on track and give you permission to be your authentic self, without losing all the people you love and totally messing up your life in the process. Enjoy our episode.

    • When in doubt... frittata.
::
Got up tired and figured why not just make a frittata the family can munch on all day. Then I don’t have to worry about lunch or dinner.
::
Gathered our eggs, collected some spinach and collards, cut some onion scapes, minced some garlic from last season and cut up come sweet potatoes.
::
Even when I am tired making a meal from food gathered on the backyard always gives me the boost to finish the meal.
::
Now back to lazing around, reading, napping, and vitamin d on the body.

    • Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same... Robert Frost

Whatever road you take is the right road for you. I often think about what would have happened if I took a different road. Where would my life path be?
::
But ultimately realize life has a way of moving you to your purpose. ultimately it didn’t matter which road you took because life has a way of bringing us to the same place.

    • What do you know about curcumin? I was recently sent a sample from @vitacost
::
I wrote up a blog detailing some of the benefits that have been seen from curcumin for people in terms of inflammation and joint issues.
::
Like any supplement it’s good to do research and luckily I dig through a few scientific papers to help you make a decision if curcumin is a supplement you want to add to your diet.

    • Before the rain clouds rolled in... now that it’s springtime/nearly summer I try to work outside as much as possible.
::
I am super fortunate to be able to work from home. While it can be lonely at times and even isolating it also is a gift to make my workspace my own wherever I want it to be.
::
It’s so easy to forget the gifts we have when they become our norm. Sometimes I have to step back and realize how fortunate I am for the freedom.
