The way we work has changed. We need new tools to help navigate this world of work - not only to achieve career success, but to stay sane while doing so - and this book can be one of them.

Our jobs can become such an important part of our identity that we walk the treacherous line between loving our work and speeding towards burnout. An always-on culture, the cult of busyness and blurred boundaries mean that work and life can become seriously out of balance.

So if you are burnt out, anxious, feel like an imposter or caught in a cycle of procrastination, this life-changing book contains all the advice you need to restore your balance and get back on track.

`The definitive guide for those who want to be more organised, mindful and productive at work - without sacrificing their personal life'

`This is a wonderful idea' Dr Ciara Kelly, Newstalk

`Packed with genuinely workable tips on how to slow down to get ahead.' Sunday Business Post

'McElwain's book reads like a manifesto for the new era, a manual for finding balance between work and productivity and the equally important play and rest.' IMAGE Magazine
