Elizabeth Emens was a working mother with two young children, swamped like so many of us, when she realized that mental labor was consuming her.She planned to conduct interviews and focus groups to find out how people cope with it all--and then the project became even more personal as she faced divorce and two relocations.Desperate to survive and to help others along the way, she gathered favorite tips and tricks, admin confessions, and the secrets of admin-happy households. Here is the one book you need in order to get past the invisible quicksand that is holding you back from the joys of living.Which type of "admin personality" are you?Do you know any Strategic Ball-Droppers?Do you suffer from Madmin Mind? Life Adminis the book that will teach us all how to do less of it, and to do it better"-- Provided by publisher.
