Author Todd Duncan challenges the status quo in search of a better, smarter way to work and live. Rejecting how-to formulas claiming to know the perfect balance between work and life, he argues that such a holy grail does not exist. Instead, he offers readers a solution of purposeful imbalance: the process of purposefully leaning toward work without sacrificing life and purposefully leaning toward life without damaging your career. Like the art of tightrope walking, the key to not falling is taking things one step at a time.You'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. Life on the Wire clears up the myth about the balanced life and shows readers how to rejoice in their imbalance. Featuring profiles of an entrepreneur, a bartender, and an accountant, among others, you'll gain insights from people who struck out to find "balance" and had to overcome innumerable challenges. This book, endorsed by bestselling author and radio host Dave Ramsey, provides lessons that will help you live out a fulfilling career and work toward a satisfying life. Work-life balance may be a myth. But that doesn't have to be a bad thing. Life on the Wire explains that imbalance is natural-the key is to make it purposeful.
