I have the cover story in the January issue of Real Simple. I read a dozen or so self-help books about work-life balance and tried to follow their advice. (So the piece is funny-serious.) It’s not online.

    What a great article! Thanks for showing me I am not alone in my challenges of time and life. I too have bought several books and also took come classes/courses on how to relieve yourself from the upset you cause yourself in life. It’s amazing when we take responsibility for our lives/time/decisions what we find. Things fall into place.
    Thank you, just thank you. Great writing and your sense of humor is stellar.
