Drop the Ball: Achieving More by Doing Less

By Tiffany Dufu

"We won't reach equality in the workplace without equality in the home. Drop the Ball shows how our relationships and our lives are richer when we lean in together." -- Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook

This program is read by the author.

A bold and inspiring memoir and manifesto from a renowned voice in the women's leadership movement who shows women how to cultivate the single skill they really need in order to thrive: the ability to let go.

Once the poster girl for doing it all, after she had her first child, Tiffany Dufu struggled to accomplish everything she thought she needed to in order to succeed. Like so many driven and talented women who have been brought up to believe that to have it all, they must do it all, Dufu began to feel that achieving her career and personal goals was an impossibility. Eventually, she discovered the solution: letting go. In Drop the Ball, Dufu recounts how she learned to reevaluate expectations, shrink her to-do list, and meaningfully engage the assistance of others--freeing the space she needed to flourish at work and to develop deeper, more meaningful relationships at home.

Even though women are half the workforce, they still represent only eighteen per cent of the highest level leaders. The reasons are obvious: just as women reach middle management they are also starting families. Mounting responsibilities at work and home leave them with no bandwidth to do what will most lead to their success. Offering new perspective on why the women's leadership movement has stalled, and packed with actionable advice, Tiffany Dufu's Drop the Ball urges women to embrace imperfection, to expect less of themselves and more from others--only then can they focus on what they truly care about, devote the necessary energy to achieving their real goals, and create the type of rich, rewarding life we all desire.

More praise for Drop the Ball:

"If you could follow a path to a stronger marriage, a happier family, and greater economic and emotional security, would you be interested? I thought so. Tiffany Dufu's Drop the Ball is that path. And she's awfully good company along the way." -- Susan Cain, co-founder of Quiet Revolution and New York Times bestselling author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking


"Drop the Ball is a must-read for all women and girls. Tiffany Dufu reminds us that we must focus on what truly matters and let go of the rest. She gives us specific tools and techniques to help us achieve our goals and live authentic lives free of guilt and regret." -- Reshma Saujani, Founder & CEO, Girls Who Code
