This book is an easy and engaging read for any woman who is currently managing a family and a career, and any woman who is considering doing so.  Beginning with the shrewd observation that balance does not mean that “everything is always operating at equilibrium and the scales are perfectly in line at every moment,” author Christine Brown-Quinn goes on to discuss how everyone benefits when a woman chooses career and family, how important it is to know yourself and your values to be able to successfully negotiate this life choice, and how it is crucial to develop and maintain the important relationships in your life (spouse, kids, business partners and team members . . .) to keep things balanced and moving forward.  For my specific purposes, there is a chapter called “Organized Chaos” that highlights three major features of time management: planning, prioritization, and delegation.
