One Thing After Another

Reviewed: Overwhelmed: Work Love, and Play When No One Has the Time by Brigid Schulte

I started reading Overwhelmed at my desk with my phone, laptop, desktop and iPad propped within reach. Each device was dedicated to a different project: my laptop had over 20 tabs open as I attempted to complete research for an upcoming writing project. The iPad ran Hootsuite, a social media coordination app, and I occasionally broke from reading to update new scheduled tweet or Facebook post for one of the managed pages I run. I checked email on my phone every so often and on the desktop sat my Google Drive with three open shared docs I was editing for a third job.

And this was just a 30-minute lunch break from my full-time day job.
