About the Book

With more than 2 million copies sold, Elaine St. James's Simplify series has taught the world how to start doing less and enjoying it more. In her first bestseller, she showed us how to reduce the clutter in our lives, from cleaning out our closets to cleaning up our relationships. Since then she has helped readers simplify their inner lives, their lives with their kids, and their holidays. Now Elaine helps us cut back in one of life's most difficult arenas-the world of work. With tremendously helpful advice-and easy yet profoundly smart suggestions-she shows us big and small ways to scale down and simplify life on the job, such as:• Break the habit of bringing work home from the office• Always estimate the time it will take to complete a project, then double the estimate• Cut back on the amount of time you spend working• How to make the right decisions quickly• How to minimize paper glut• Let your callers know what your work hours are and stick to them• How to make it easier to return to work after your vacation• Ways to enhance your energy so you can get more done in less time and leave work early, and much, much, moreHighlighting such high-tech "conveniences" as the cell phone, e-mail, fax machine, and time management systems, she helps readers understand the difference between making work easier and making it easier to do more work. Elaine explains not only how to change the way we work, but how to change the way we think about work. Written in the same upbeat, relaxed, and matter-of-fact tone that won millions of readers to the simplicity movement, Simplify Your Work Life is certain to attract even more followers as it shows how work can be fulfilling and challenging without taking over one's life.
