Title: Life on the Wire: Avoid Burnout and Succeed in Work and Life
Author(s): Todd Duncan
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Imbalance is natural.
The key is to make it purposeful.
In Life on the Wire, New York Times best-selling author Todd Duncan challenges the status quo in search of a better, smarter way to work and live. He profiles several people striking out to find “balance.” You’ll meet an entrepreneur, a bartender, and an accountant, among others. You’ll hear their stories, their challenges, their insights, and the critical lessons they learned.
Duncan contends the last thing we need amid life’s inherent imbalance is another attempt at a how-to formula for perfect balance?equal parts work and life. In fact, he argues that such a holy grail does not exist. Instead, he has issued a more pragmatic formula he calls purposeful imbalance: the process of purposefully leaning toward work without sacrificing life and purposefully leaning toward life without damaging your career. It is precisely the way a tight-rope walker makes his way across a one-inch rope without falling.
“I’ve always believed that when you’re at work, you should work hard, and when you’re at home, you should play hard. That’s easy to say, but for a lot of people it’s hard to do. In Life on the Wire, Todd Duncan clears up the myth about the ‘balanced’ life and shows you how to rejoice in the purposeful—and planned— imbalanced life.”

Title: Do No Work: Beat Burnout, Find Inner Peace, and Strengthen Your Faith
Author(s): Andrew Gilmore
Publisher: Sequoyah Trails Press
“The Sabbath doesn’t apply to me. That Old Testament stuff isn’t relevant anymore.”
If you’ve ever said that, you could not be more wrong.
The first Sabbath occurred before there was Jew or gentile; after six days of creation God rested. And don’t forget that Jesus said, “The Sabbath was made for man” (Mark 2:27). Not, “The Sabbath was made for the Jew.”
But even if you do believe the fourth commandment applies to you, how do you apply it to your life?
It’s hard to stop and rest for an hour let alone an entire day. Besides that, busyness is a badge—if you’re not busy, you’re not trying. Sure, you might make it to church every Sunday, but while there all you can think about is the to do list you need to work on.
Andrew Gilmore was in the same boat: distracted at church, stressed out by his to do list, and unsure if the fourth commandment even applied to him.
Title: 10 Smart Strategies to Avoid Time Traps and Invest Yourself Where It Matters
Author(s): Carolyn Castleberry
Publisher: Howard Books
Award-winning reporter Carolyn Castleberry brings workable solutions to help women discover and apply the right strategies for time management in their lives, freeing them to invest themselves in what really matters.
American women are in a time crisis. There’s just not enough time. They are doing more but enjoying it less. Fueled by both internal and external pressures, they run from task to task without pausing to ask themselves, “Do I really want to do all this stuff? Why can’t I get a handle on managing my time?” How can they find true time balance in their supercharged, over-scheduled lives?
Carolyn Castleberry, anchor and co-host of Living the Life on ABC’s Family Channel, has not only asked herself these questions, but she has interviewed countless accomplished newsmakers over the years. Determined to bring workable solutions to women, she commissioned a national survey on women and time. Roughly half of those surveyed feel busier than they did five years ago (50%), don’t feel there’s enough time to get everything done (45%), and say they don’t have enough time for themselves (43%). One in three women (34%) described themselves as overwhelmed.
This book delivers proven, effective strategies for time management. First, it offers women a chance to take a self-test to see where they fall on the “time-balance scale,” a tool to assist the reader in diagnosing her time management style in order to apply the right strategies and biblical principles to fit her needs. Castleberry describes five major groups of women when it comes to time management: the Overwhelmed, the Procrastinators, the Pressured, the Self-Stressed, and the Balanced. Once diagnosed, readers discover the unique factors standing in their way of effectiveness. They explore the time traps that need to be avoided — those habits, decisions, and disempowering thoughts and words that literally steal time. Then with smart biblical strategies in place, readers will discover how to select their true priorities and invest their talents, careers, and selves in living to do what really matters.
