Overview

24/7: Twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Not long ago, the phrase might have been used to describe the challenges of being a working mother. But now, in the wired world of the new millennium, men as well as women struggle with a new way of life. More and more, work invades our home lives, and leisure time is often so regimented that it begins to seem like work. Our relationship to time is transformed by technologies that operate at a speed beyond conscious thought. And as the stages of our lives become less and less predictable, it becomes increasingly difficult to prepare for the future.

Sally Helgesen's lucid new book will help readers restore their equilibrium. She both describes the 24/7 phenomenon and offer six strategies for dealing with it--strategies that anyone can master. She focuses especially on the ability to improvise, to be partners in change with our employers, to be open to innovation, and to "customize our lives." And based upon hundreds of interviews with men and women adept at navigating the 24/7 world, as well as personal experience, she weaves in anecdotes that illustrate the strategies in action.

THRIVING IN 24/7 is an indispensable handbook for anyone who wants not merely to survive but to thrive in the new world of work.
