It used to be simple: Stay late, turn in flawless work, catch up on sleep later. You needed that mindset to get where you are, but that's not going to cut it anymore. You need to make different choices to succeed at work, as a parent, and as a family member.

Getting It All Done can't teach you how to be in two places at once, but it provides you with expert advice as you manage the challenge of succeeding at work while making sure your family is housed, fed, healthy, safe, and educated.

You'll learn to: set up schedules and routines that work; spend your time and energy on the most valuable activities; set reasonable expectations and limits in the always-on culture; keep exercising your management skills once you've left the office; move on with resilience when you occasionally drop the ball; and embody the work and life values you believe in for your children.
