Overview

In these times of 24-hour on-call duty, 60-plus hour workweeks, cell phones, and BlackBerrys, it often seems as if we've have traded living a good, balanced life in favor of being more efficient, wealthier, and more technologically dependent. As a result, we are becoming more stressed, sad, lonely, isolated, and depressed. Isn't work supposed to be just one aspect of life? Whatever happened to fun and leisure?

Burnout and stress and a general feeling of dissatisfaction with our life are the result of imbalance, explains Dianna Booher. In this book, she offers detailed, practical guidance on how to regain control of your time and rethink your priorities in order to restore balance and give meaning to your daily activities. Free of the usual platitudes and generalities, the book contains 113 concrete strategies for handling the complexities of life and organizing your time. Learn to protect yourself from nuisance callers and visitors, cut unnecessary expenses, and loosen the constricting bonds of obligation. Each suggestion is designed to liberate your time, not to add more activities to an already packed schedule.

Filled with acute psychological observations and practical wisdom, Get a Life without Sacrificing Your Career is a lucid and useful handbook for the busy professional struggling to convert success into happiness. \ \
