Women and Time Paperback – December 12, 2011
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

About the Author
This book deserves to be read by all women who strive to achieve fulfillment in both their personal and professional lives. The authors deftly examine the reasons behind why so many articulate and well-educated women today feel overwhelmed and underappreciated. It is hardly news that, despite the feminine “revolution” that began in the 1970’s, the majority of women have not found the enjoyment, lifestyle or satisfaction they once imagined. The reason they attribute to their problem is that they have taken on too much! But, that is just the tip of the iceberg. Career women, in particular, have come to believe it is their lot in life to be running on 8 cylinders day in and day out. This has led women to become frustrated by experiencing long days and nightmarish schedules. Women are exhausted. Authors Barb McEwen and John Agno are North American’s top coaches of Executive Women. They not only challenge women to get their supports in place, but to make the right choices so their health, family life, careers and relationships are not undermined.

John and Barbara draw on their extensive executive coaching backgrounds to offer insights and strategies for managing stress and anger and other issues that affect women in the working world, as well as dealing with work / life balance. They also bring nuanced perspective to the issue of the many expectations women create for ourselves (our stories) as well as what we experience within our families, friends and networks, based on our daily choices.
Each segment offers a "Putting it into Practice" set of strategies to help you choose from options in making a change in your life. Developing a vision and clarity for your next steps, including "Mastering the Skill of Focusing" is just one of their many gems.
I recommend this useful book to any woman looking to better "seize the day" to create peacefulness, clarity, healthy energy and more joy in her life. ~ D
There is a lot in here about how women are different in their perceptions of themselves and time, but I found it a little basic and at times obvious.
And 'delegate, even if you have to pay for it' is not a time management tip. If I could pay for things to be done around my house, I wouldn't need a book on time management.
having said that, it's not a bad book, just not as thorough and indepth as I was searching for.
