A reader’s review of this book:
Amy Webb of New Jersey wrote that “This was great - get ready for some introspection! I felt that some of it didn’t apply to me as I tend to enjoy staying put at home with my kids - BUT this book still had a lot that got me thinking. Even though I am not an adrenaline junkie, I do sometimes take on more than I should.
What I loved the most in this book was the section on no-stress holidays and the info on goal setting & time management. I got a lot out of her discussion of evaluating your week, and I keep giggling about the image of my pencil being my scepter. The most influential item for me was, as usual, an Ellison zinger: “taking something on” should be more rightly termed “trading off” (my paraphrase). I just keep thinking about it, and I have had the opportunity to share it with several friends lately as we discussed our schedules and lives and areas of ministry. This book is useful for anyone with a busy life, who struggles with “trading off” too much. Worth what it costs, for sure!”
