Having It All
A Practical Guide to Managing a Home and a Career
Gabriel and Baldwin
I would have jumped on any book like this back in the day. Of course my older wiser self recognizes that no one has it all. What is interesting is how this author presents the issues of working and parenting. There is even a quiz to evaluate your readiness to take on this challenge. This quiz focuses on your particular family’s attitude toward working outside the home. The rest is all time management.
You need to take time to budget your time appropriately. Dump stuff on your assistant, nanny, maid, etc. Problem solved! Isn’t being privileged helpful? I wanted everything too. By the time my kids were in school, I considered it a victory if I was clean and dressed and I made it to work on time. I am also disappointed in my younger self for reading stupid books like this. What a waste of time.
