Synopsis

Tweak It Make What Matters to You Happen Every Day by Cali Williams Yost

TWEAK IT helps negotiate the seemingly endless, everyday micro-tradeoffs that determine the fundamental sense of well-being on and off the job. TWEAK IT shows you how to have a week where you can work and sit down with your spouse for dinner; work and go to your daughter's soccer game; work and shop for your sister's birthday present; work and meet a friend for lunch; work and have a potluck supper with the neighbors. As the CEO of Work+Life Fit, Inc. and Flex+Strategy Group, Yost has 15 years of experience and research in the work+life field. Her research has shown a number of key categories for tweaking that most directly influence day-to-day success, areas in which a small tweak here and there can allow time for everything that matters. TWEAK IT presents an easy to implement 52 week program that can be individually tailored and focuses on tweaking relationships, wellness, life maintenance, financial planning, networking and social media, for example: *Friends and Family TWEAKS - make time every week for your people *Self Care TWEAKS - bring physical and spiritual well-being to work and everyday life *Life Maintenance TWEAKS - keeping up with daily maintenance that allows life to run more smoothlyIn TWEAK IT, Yost will feature examples of senior executives, athletes, politicians and celebrities who use her program to tweak the way their lives fit into their demanding jobs. These case histories will motivate and inspire the reader to tweak for success and happiness. Cali Williams Yost knows we consistently struggle to fit it all in. TWEAK IT will end the fight.Cali Williams Yost has been shaping the global dialogue on work+life flexibility for nearly two decades.

Reviews

I'm grateful to TWEAK IT for helping me make meaningful tweaks to my hectic work+life fit. In just the first week, I made a date to see my mom for dinner, set a schedule to walk with my husband a few times a week, and remembered to prioritize spending 10 minutes a day with each of my kids. Cali's mindful approach, and her stories about work+life fit naturals, offer up the possibility that we can all, in her words, make what matters happen every day. Julie Burstein, author of Spark: How Creativity Works Organizational culture, management support, and human resource policies are important, but, ultimately, it is the individual who must determine their fit, and manage the process of achieving it. Cali Yost's latest contribution to the field, TWEAK IT, provides individuals with a simple yet elegant way to take hold of their lives and, in doing so, achieve their personal and professional goals. Filled with real-life cases and easy to execute tips and how to's, TWEAK IT illustrates vividly how small changes can have a big impact on the quality of our lives and our relationships with those who matter most. Professor Brad Harrington, Executive Director, Boston College Center for Work & Family Cali Yost is one of our wisest and staunchest thought leaders. In TWEAK IT, she delivers a brilliant mix of deeply researched and deeply practical advice that will improve the life of anyone who acts on it. A must-read book for anyone who is overextended, overworked--and passionate about their lives. Susan Cain, bestselling author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts
