News & Opinion: Your Brain at Work and inBubbleWrap

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 9:18 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Our resident wordsmith Sally, who in her own words "probably think[s] about life in sports metaphors more often than your average nerdy female bookworm," has posted her second offer over on inBubbleWrap. She asks whether, as is the case with olympic athletes, "every high level of success must be accompanied by an equal amount of sacrifice."

And, by giving away David Rock's Your Brain at Work: Strategies for Overcoming Distraction, Regaining Focus, and Working Smarter all Day Long, she hopes to put a book in your hands that will help you work smarter and find a better work/life balance so you don't have to make Olympian sacrifices to succeed.

She has 20 copies to give away.
