    This sentence is used in different ways. Eg my boyfriend has a bit of a temper so I told him “get your **** together or I’m done”. I meant ‘stop being temperamental or I’m done’. It just depends on context

    No, it means being a competent, self regulating adult, looking after yourself, your finances, your home/living space, etc. and to stop being a foolish immature person making stupid choices. 

    Hopefully the other stuff doesn't happen until you do.

    Just ask them why they say that, I would think it means to be a responsible adult, a good member to society.

    It depends on the situation. For some people it might mean that, for others it might mean get a job and be a productive member of society, for others it might mean step up and help support and raise the children you’ve already created, for some it may mean mentally get yourself into a different headspace where you can be productive.

    The next time you hear it, ask the person what they mean exactly.

    It means 'Get off my couch and get a job because you're too old to be mooching off of your parents'. You don't gotta be the best, you just got to be better.

    Usually it means to act like a responsible adult. It might include any of those things, or none of them.
