What made the experience of listening to I Know How She Does It the most enjoyable?
I love books on time management but more so when the time management deals with the mindset piece.
I am not the target market actually as I'm not in the 4% of top earning women, and the definition of Big Job rankled a lot because I think many of the tips are applicable to most women.
What other book might you compare I Know How She Does It to and why?
Overwhelmed - Brigid Schulte - same conundrum on working women and fitting it all in
What insight do you think you’ll apply from I Know How She Does It?
I loved the mindset shifts. That while we tend to focus on one narrative (we're missing softball games so we need to give up work), there is another narrative too (we don't tell ourselves when we miss one game due to another kid's activities that we need to get rid of the kid :)). And if we have affluence, then use it to make your life easier - don't be a martyr.
I also loved the clever tips. Like if your organisation values a facetime culture, then choose one night a week (mon - thurs) and work very late but be very visible, and other days stick to normal hours. You're playing their game but being smart about it.
$50 000 workers work about 33 - 40 hours a week; "big career" workers work on average 10 hours more. Wow - is that all?

Reads a lot like "the millionaire next door" only with a different subject. I enjoyed hearing the basic principles of time management and not caring laid out in a book. It's a little irritating hearing her use cliches and pop culture references as much as she does, but the point is still a good one. And she did a very good job driving the points home with tips and tricks.
