How to avoid having a Napoleon Dynamite summer

That’s the headline on The Organized Parent’s write-up of 168 Hours. Organization guru Stephanie Vozza talks about figuring out how she and her family will spend the 2016 hours of summer vacation (a great article idea, by the way — that’s 12 x 168). She writes that 168 Hours has helped her think about that question. And she gives what I think is one of the better summaries of the book out there:

Laura, gently but firmly, lets us know that in the amount of time the average American spends watching television, others train for a marathon, build a business or nurture relationships with their family. The bottom line, as Laura says, is that we all have exactly the same amount of hours in a week. How do you choose to spend yours?

  1. Hi Laura

    I’ve enjoyed everything I read about on your blog so far :)

    I’m a time management expert and wondered if you’d like me to review your book?

    Let me know – I think we’re kindred spirits.
