Tiffany Dufu Ú 6 review read & download È PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ú Tiffany Dufu Drop the Ball free read È PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB 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

I received this ARC through a Goodreads giveawayI think this is a book that will help a lot of people I realize that there is nothing wrong with asking for help or delegating I never really entertained the idea that allowing or asking other to do things for me will help me succeed Yes I know that sounds so obvious but just like the author in the past I am always afraid that if I other people won t do it right or I feel guilty for not doing something myselfThere is so much potential in have a true domestic partnership I would recommended this to anyone who wants to learn how they can have it all without doing it all

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
