Author Ruth Klein understands the unique challenges that time management presents to working women. The demands of home, family and work always compete for their attention, and they get almost no personal time. She divides women into three "Personal Motivational Lifestyle" categories and explains that a woman will feel unbalanced and unfulfilled if her time investment is out of sync with her lifestyle. She encourages women to nurture a clear understanding of their own personalities so their time use aligns with their values and beliefs. Klein offers many useful, practical timesaving tips, strategies and techniques for the home and workplace. The book jumps from subject to subject with little regard to flow, but the advice is solid and actionable once you find it. getAbstract believes Klein can help you organize your time. Just give her a minute.
