    Why do women find work-life balance so hard? Why is having it all such an elusive quest? Why haven’t women achieved equality yet in the leadership ranks? Authors Jodi Ecker Detjen, Michelle A. Waters, and Kelly Watson probe these questions and more in this highly anticipated new book, The Orange Line—A Woman’s Guide to Integrating Career Family & Life. Through interviews with 118 college-educated women, they document the varied career stories and day-to-day anecdotes in the ongoing work-life struggle. They also uncover a revolutionary new line of thinking: Women are holding themselves back with outdated ideals and rigid rules for how to act. Naming this limiting belief system The Feminine Filter, the authors call on women to reframe their assumptions, shed their guilt, and pursue their vocation with passion. The authors provide tools to help women remove this Filter so they can see more clearly to a new career path that includes work, family, and themselves. It is the most radical call to arms for women in decades, but instead of asking governments and organizations to change, the authors inspire women to look inward to claim their power.

    In today’s world of exponentially increased communication and responsibility, yesterday’s methods for staying on top just don’t work. Veteran management consultant and trainer David Allen recognizes that “time management” is useless the minute your schedule is interrupted; “setting priorities” isn’t relevant when your email is down; “procrastination solutions” won’t help if your goals aren’t clear. Allen’s premise is simple: our ability to be productive is directly proportional to our ability to relax. Only when our minds are clear and our thoughts are organized can we achieve stress-free productivity and unleash our creative potential. He teaches us how to: Apply the “do it, delegate it, defer it, drop it” rule to get your inbox empty Reassess goals and stay focused in changing situations Overcome feelings of confusion, anxiety, and being overwhelmed Feel fine about what you’re not doing From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done has the potential to transform the way you work—and the way you experience work. At any level of implementation, David Allen’s entertaining and thought-provoking advice shows you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.

    For readers who made David Allen’s Getting Things Done a perennial bestseller, a fresh and entertaining exploration of a topic that concerns just about everyone over the course of their careers: how to be more productive at work, and in every facet of our lives. After earning his business degree, Chris Bailey turned down several lucrative job offers to pursue a lifelong dream—to spend a year performing a deep dive experiment into the subject of productivity. Bailey had been fascinated with productivity since he was a young teenager, when he began researching every paper and every book available on the topic. After graduating college, he created a blog to chronicle his year long series of productivity experiments on himself, and well as his continuing research and interviews with some of the world’s foremost experts, from Charles Duhigg to David Allen. Among the experiments that he attempted: Bailey went several weeks with getting by on little to no sleep; he cut out caffeine and sugar; he lived in total isolation for ten days; he stretched his work week to ninety hours; a late riser, he got up at 5:30 every morning for a month, all the while monitoring the impact of his experiments on the quality and quantity of his work. This book, The Productivity Project—and the lessons Chris learned—are the result of that year-long journey. Among the many counterintuitive insights Chris discovered that had the biggest impact on his productivity: shrinking or eliminating the unimportant; the rule of three; striving for imperfection; scheduling less time for important tasks; the twenty second rule to distract yourself from distractions; and the concept of productive procrastination. Bailey offers over thirty best practices that will help every one of us to accomplish more.

    One of the most valuable skills in our economy is becoming increasingly rare. If you master this skill, you’ll achieve extraordinary results. Deep work is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It’s a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time. Deep work will make you better at what you do and provide the sense of true fulfillment that comes from craftsmanship. In short, deep work is like a super power in our increasingly competitive twenty-first century economy. And yet, most people have lost the ability to go deep—spending their days instead in a frantic blur of e-mail and social media, not even realizing there’s a better way. In Deep Work, author and professor Cal Newport flips the narrative on impact in a connected age. Instead of arguing distraction is bad, he instead celebrates the power of its opposite. Dividing this book into two parts, he first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits. He then presents a rigorous training regimen, presented as a series of four rules, for transforming your mind and habits to support this skill. A mix of cultural criticism and actionable advice, Deep Work takes the reader on a journey through memorable stories—from Carl Jung building a stone tower in the woods to focus his mind, to a social media pioneer buying a round-trip business class ticket to Tokyo to write a book free from distraction in the air—and no-nonsense advice, such as the claim that most serious professionals should quit social media and that you should practice being bored. Deep Work is an indispensable guide to anyone seeking focused success in a distracted world.

    Business psychologist Tony Crabbe outlines a unique four-step approach to combating one of modern life’s great problems: being too busy. BUSY is divided into four digestible sections—Mastery, Differentiation, Engagement, and Momentum—that will teach readers how to switch from managing time to managing attention; how to transition toward a career strategy that doesn’t hinge on productivity; how to think differently about success by re-engaging with what matters; and how to create the impetus, energy, and clarity to put all these changes into effect. Crabbe draws on entertaining psychological studies to show why we’re getting it wrong at the moment and to develop a fresh new approach to taking back one’s life from chaotic outside forces. Rarely has a book been more timely in both its scope and in its immediate impact.

    From the bestselling author of What the Most Successful People Do before Breakfast, powerful insights from 1001 actual days in the lives of high-achieving women.Balancing work and family life is a constant struggle, especially for women with children and ambitious career goals. It’s been the subject of countless books, articles, blog posts and tweets in the last few years, and passions run high in all directions.Now Laura Vanderkam, the acclaimed time management expert, comes at the “having it all” debate by asking a very practical question. Given that we all have the same 168 hours every week, how do people who do have it all—women with thriving careers and families—use those hours? When you study how such women fit together the pieces of their lives, like tiles in a mosaic, the results are surprising.If you work 40 hours and sleep 56 (i.e. 8 times 7) that leaves 72 hours for everything else. Vanderkam explains how her subjects use those “everything else” hours; why we work less and have more free time than we think; why it’s a myth that successful women get too little sleep; and how women can have demanding jobs, spouses, and kids, and still enjoy a healthy amount of downtime.She shares the time-logs from 1001 days in the lives of women who make at least $100,000 a year and still make time for their families and friends, for sleep and exercise, and for leisure activities they love. Based on what she learned from the patterns in those time-logs, she provides a framework for anyone who wants to thrive at both work and life.

    When you stop trying to do so much, you get so much more done. According to Shaa Wasmund, “You can do anything … but you can’t do everything. At least not at the same time. Many (if not most) of the things that will create your best life are perfectly attainable when you are willing to stop doing what’s not important and start prioritizing what is.” Our culture has made it a badge of honor to be stressed, frazzled, and running on empty—but Wasmund is on a mission to change that. Her book is for everyone who runs from task to task, trying to be all things to all people, never feeling like they have the time or energy to give anything their full attention. She shows that when we embrace a less-is-more attitude, we can appreciate all the good things we already have and find the courage to prune the nonessentials. Only then we can find the space in which to pursue exciting new opportunities. It is often fear that keeps us stuck in our patterns. If we’re super busy, then no one can say we’re not working hard. But there’s another way that’s both more enjoyable and more productive, if only we can break those patterns. Wasmund teaches us how to become experts in the things we’re truly passionate about, rather than mediocre jacks of all trades. Her productivity tools include some strange sounding ideas like using a digital sundown, eating frogs, and batch tasking. Above all, she can help us say “no” to the wrong things so that we’ll have time to say “yes” to the things that really matter—for our careers and personal lives.
