Drop the Ball Read & Download º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Tiffany Dufu ↠ 4 Free read Er and personal goals was an impossibility Eventually she discovered the solution letting go In Drop the Ball Dufu recounts how she learned to reevaluate expectations shrink her to do list and meaningfully engage the assistance of others freeing the space she needed to flourish at work and to develop deeper meaningful relationships at homeEven though women are half the workforce they still represent only eighteen per cent of the highest level leaders The reasons are obvious just as women reach middle management they are. I picked up this book because a colleague of mine said most career books for women didn t have useful information for her as a person of color So I went actively looking for a book by an author of color that had high ratings and sadly it took some doing to find one However I m not sure that this book will meet my colleague s need as it ended up primarily about giving up on being a perfectionist homemakermother and learning to focus on what s most important with your limited time for career marriage motherhood and home With that said I do think you can take some of the principles of the book and apply them to work Especially as stereotypically women can be assignedvolunteer for so many projects that are not seen as career advancing but that benefit the company See As someone who does juggle two teenage boyshome with a full time career and long commute this book made me even grateful for my husband and also made me recognize so many traps that I had fallen into in the past For example thinking that you re the only one who can be the key contact for all things to do with the kids We ve now happily divided up our areas when it comes to the boys And my husband is also currently the owner of our social calendar for our family and we ve trained our friends to contact him with dinner and trip invites In previous years and a different role that my was in my areaSome of the things I ended up talking about with my husband The differences in how men and women think Men are described as having brains that are full of boxes For example one box for the car one box for work one box for kids The male brain s unofficial rule is that none of the boxes ever touch Women have brains full of connected wires The topics intertwine so it s really hard for a woman to switch off from all the things that need to be done and often a conversation will veer uickly from one topic to another While I m not at all convinced at this being very scientific it was funny how true both of us found this Expressing gratitude What Dufu thought was meaningful was very different from what her husband liked Finally Dufu has established four practices that allow her to flourish1 Going to exercise builds your stamina2 Going to lunch can also be coffee breakfast etc builds your network with sponsors sage mentors peer mentors promoters and mentees3 Going to events building your visibility this also includes volunteering to make presentations and serve on panels4 Going to sleep she did an eight hoursnight for eight weeks experiment and was astounded at the differenceIt s a chatty share my experience kind of book but also a uick read I laughed out loud at some of Dufu s misguided attempts to get her husband to do and her astonishment to learn about all the other tasks he did and she took for granted Worth reading if you feel like you are taking on too much at home and want to figure out how to change things up

Thank you Call Your Girlfriend for getting this book into my life A lot of this book centers around helping working moms find balance between home and work and I wish this book had existed for me to read before coming back from maternity leave I was already recommending this book to people before I d even finished itI related to a lot of the challenges she describes and I liked that her answers went deeper than just hire a housekeeper providing exercises to identify what s really meaningful to you and how to align your day to day activities with your values I found some of those exercises very enlightening and would have even before having a kid I also appreciated hearing the perspective of a high achieving woman of color on work life balance and the personal stories the author shared of the extra pressures that come into play for people from underrepresented backgrounds I also appreciated that she talked about her attempts to achieve balance throughout her career including when she was building her career and didn t have as many financial resources Too many books on achieving balance assume a reader of privilege and this book made fewer assumptions along those lines with the exception of one big one having a partner although she does make some recommendations on how to achieve the same support system through shared living arrangements etc

Drop the Ball Read & Download º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Tiffany Dufu ↠ 4 Free read A bold and inspiring memoir and manifesto from a renowned voice in the women's leadership movement who shows women how to cultivate the single skill they really need in order to thrive the ability to let go Once the poster girl for doing it all after she had her first child Tiffany Dufu struggled to accomplish everything she thought she needed to in order to succeed Like so many driven and talented women who have been brought up to believe that to have it all they must do it all Dufu began to feel that achieving her care. This was an eye opener about some of my own habits in my marriage and I m glad I read this At heart it s a book about how women wanting it all put unnecessary stress on themselves and others to do so because that s what they ve been shown needs to be done Men on the other hand have been shown that they don t need to pick up the pieces or the slack Social conditioning So when a woman finally says that some of the things that don t take her to her highest and best self remembering to pick up the dry cleaning and tightening screws in the closet she can delegate those tasks and accept the fact that her partner will do them they want he knows how to best do them That doesn t mean they make best use of his highest and best self but it does in the sense it gives him ownership of household maintenance too The takeaway for me on this one was accepting that the way my husband does things I ask of him is okay I don t need to micromanage since it s not done the way I would do it It got done that s good enough By praising the work getting done that positive reinforcement ensures happens in the future By not micromanaging I m not nagging and I m also accepting the fact that my husband might be teaching me something about a task or himself The breaking down of gender stuff was interesting I d be really fascinated to see this looked at from a same sex couple perspective too I suspect tactics and suggestions are the same but the science and research behind it would be interesting I ll let the dishes sit in the sink now and instead read another book
