Surprising ways we limit ourselves and our happiness, and how to challenge the internalized wisdom and circular thinking that holds us back
As women, many of us are stuck in feedback loops about how to be successful and happy: striving to “have it all” at work and at home, letting ourselves be pressured into giving every part of our lives 100% until we’re completely burnt-out, imagining only a strictly linear life path (college, job, marriage, kids), and accepting limitations without question. Yet the truth is, this book argues, most of the conventional wisdom about driving our life choices is total baloney.
Chock full of strategies for where and when to give our limited energy, what to demand from our careers, and how to make better choices, Everything Is Negotiable is for women ready to seize the lives they really want.
