In their groundbreaking book Life Matters, Roger and Rebecca Merrill affirm that the key is proactively creating a dynamic, synergistic life balance between work, family, time, and money. Many believe that you can either have a balanced life at home or you can be highly productive at work, but you can’t do both. The Merrills disagree. The say the answer does not lie in some mechanical “balance the scale” approach to work and family or in trying to run between the bases fast enough to touch them all in one day. The answer lies in creating a dynamic equilibrium in which work, family, time, and money are all vital, richly rewarding, and highly interrelated parts.
From confronting life’s tough questions to offering practical ways to implement your answers, the Merrills guide you through the crucial steps toward effective living. From their decades of professional and personal experience, the authors identify the essential “Gotta Dos” that serve as the framework for creating positive change.
