Synopsis

Imbalance is natural.

The key is to make it purposeful.

In Life on the Wire, New York Times best-selling author Todd Duncan challenges the status quo in search of a better, smarter way to work and live. He profiles several people striking out to find "balance." You'll meet an entrepreneur, a bartender, and an accountant, among others. You'll hear their stories, their challenges, their insights, and the critical lessons they learned.

Duncan contends the last thing we need amid life's inherent imbalance is another attempt at a how-to formula for perfect balance―equal parts work and life. In fact, he argues that such a holy grail does not exist. Instead, he has issued a more pragmatic formula he calls purposeful imbalance: the process of purposefully leaning toward work without sacrificing life and purposefully leaning toward life without damaging your career. It is precisely the way a tight-rope walker makes his way across a one-inch rope without falling.

“I’ve always believed that when you’re at work, you should work hard, and when you’re at home, you should play hard. That’s easy to say, but for a lot of people it’s hard to do.  In Life on the Wire, Todd Duncan clears up the myth about the ‘balanced’ life and shows you how to rejoice in the purposeful—and planned— imbalanced life.”

—Dave Ramsey, Best-Selling author and host of The Dave Ramsey Show

“This book quickly shows you how to get more done, of greater importance, and less time, and dramatically increase the quality of your entire life.”

—Brian Tracy, Best-Selling author of Eat That Frog!EO and founder of Todd

“Open these pages and discover practical yet potent advice for pursuing your dreams and living your life well!” 

—Glenna Salsbury, CSP, CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame, author of The Art of the Fresh Start and Professional Speaker

“Todd has really touched on an important perspective regarding ‘Life Balance.’  Timely and relevant . . . reading this book will give you a nice bit of personal peace.”

—Terri Sjodin, principle and founder, Sjodin Communications
