    PDF Drop the Ball free read Drop the Ball I found this book disappointing probably due to the marketing as much as anything else I had seen this advertised as a measured response to Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In but it merely turned out to be Tiffany Dufu's version of the same story The endorsement by uiet author Susan Cain had me hopeful but while Dufu does spend a great deal of time discussing household communication the tales of her networking activities were than enough to make a

Drop the Ball

review Drop the Ball Ñ 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

review Drop the Ball Ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB Also starting families Mounting responsibilities at work and home leave them with no bandwidth to do what will most lead to their success Offering new perspective on why the women's leadership movement has stalled and packed with actionable advice Tiffany Dufu's Drop the Ball urges women to embrace imperfection to expect less of themselves and from others only then can they focus on what they truly care about devote the necessary energy to achieving their real goals and create the type of rich rewarding life we all desir. Drop the Ball is a how to guide on having it all based on Tiffany Dufu s experience with her husband I found myself as a modernyoungish woman nodding along with so many of her perspectives and experiences She explores how despite how far we have come as a gender many of the household responsibilities still fall to women Even if men help out their contribution statistically is not 50% and this is not always their fault sometimes women take on than they need to andor don t ask for help The applications of this book are really just towards working women in a committed relationship with a man she acknowledges that the dynamics are different in same sex couples where both partners work outside the home One of the biggest issues facing the couple is the ingrained sexism we inherit from watching our parents generation and media which harms both men and womenShe suggests that not everything must be done perfectly as this is sometimes why women would rather do the tasks themselves that we should trust our partners to do housework and do it well and that we can drop the ball by giving up some of these responsibilities to our partners or sometimes to noone if it doesn t help with your andor your partner s missions in life She uses many anecdotes from her own life and those of people she knows to explain these situations and show how they might be aided by a different approachI am not usually a lover of self help books but this was really incredible It flows so beautifully and with such clarityrelatableness that I felt like it could have come from my own life experiences Although this book may not resonate with everyone s situations I found it to be really poignant and highly applicable to my own life I see a lot of myself in the situations Dufu describes and I have been trying to get better about this especially regarding standards of perfection at home it really made me feel less alone with my own struggles and offers up some great strategies for how to allow yourself to let things go as well as how to approach your partner for help if this is an issue For me I found the passages about letting perfection go most critical Dufu tells us to ask for our massive to do lists and see what actually needs to be done what can be done in an easier way and what can be done by someone else If we prioritize based on our and our family s goals there are many things we think we need to do that we really do not I am not saying this as well as she does but it s a really fantastic book and I would highly suggest this for women who are struggling to have it all and who have a male partner as this is where most of the advice would be applicable less so for single parents or same sex couples There are a few examples of these other situations but by and large this book is for a fairly specific demographic but for people in this situation I think it would be incredibly usefulPlease note that I received this book through a goodreads giveaway All opinions are my own

review Drop the Ball Ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB Er and personal goals was an impossibility Eventually she discovered the solution letting go In Drop the Ball Dufu recounts how she learned to reevaluate expectations shrink her to do list and meaningfully engage the assistance of others freeing the space she needed to flourish at work and to develop deeper meaningful relationships at homeEven though women are half the workforce they still represent only eighteen per cent of the highest level leaders The reasons are obvious just as women reach middle management they are. I really wanted this book to be a life changer much like The Japanese Art of Tidying Up was to me Alas this book was 90% straight up disconnect and 10% tantalizing and thought provoking In some ways I adopted many of the tactics the author recommends from the very start when I had my first child because I had no desire to be the perfect mother I just wanted to retain some semblance of myself while being a mother This meant dropping a lot of expectations that I didn t fully believe in to start The disconnect showed up in various ways I was astounded that the author who meticulously plans meal preparation for a week didn t plan on how to take pumping breaks at work Five minutes of Googling will provide copious amounts of information on how to do this Even incredulous though was that she actually let the mail pile up for four months and let bills go to collections because she delegated with joy to her husband and was not going to undermine her own decision Of all of the hills to die on this one affects your credit rating I m still dumbfounded by it The tantalizing portions were few and far between but usually consisted of holding up a mirror to our society and reflecting back how it portrays mothers and fathers and neatly sorts them into gender roles Things I wish she had added practical tips on how to delegate I would pay real money for someone to explain to me how to delegate with joy the full on management of the household not just individual chores so that reminders and prompts are no longer reuired I know she had MEL the spreadsheet extraordinaire but what happens when in the division of labor the husband takes the male gendered tasks anyway How do you navigate the division of labor when one spouse significantly out earns the other These would have been a lot helpful than hearing about her work in the glittery non profit world of New York and all of the famous people she gets to meet
