The prescriptive follow-up to the New York Times bestseller The Dream Manager.
One of the major issues in our lives today is work-life balance. Everyone wants it; no one has it. But Matthew Kelly believes that work- life balance was a mistake from the start. Because we don't really want balance. We want satisfaction.

Kelly lays out the system he uses with his clients, his team, and himself to find deep, long-term satisfaction both personally and professionally. He introduces us to the three philosophies of our age that are dragging us down. He shows us how to cultivate the energy that will give us enough battery power for everything we need and want to do. And finally, in five clear steps, he shows us how to use his Personal & Professional Satisfaction System to establish and honor our biggest priorities, even if we spend a lot more time on some of the lesser ones.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 20, 2011 – Why is work-life balance so difficult to achieve? Because, says Kelly (The Dream Manager), the very concept is fatally flawed. The attempt to "balance" life against work necessarily pits the two against each other; in reality, we do not have two lives, one personal and one professional, but one life that contains both aspects. Better to seek satisfaction rather than balance, and Kelly presents the three philosophies (working to become the best version of yourself, practicing virtue, and self-control) that will help you get there. He urges readers to get in touch with their dissatisfaction, to ask the big questions, and to follow his five-step plan to personal and professional satisfaction: assessment, assigning priorities, developing core habits, and performing both a weekly strategy session and a quarterly review. Though the ideas are solid, they're thin on the ground readers looking for a more substantive treatment will be left wanting.
