No wonder we have overwhelming to-do lists that leave us feeling exhausted and powerless! But in andlt;Iandgt;I Used to Have a Handle on Life but It Broke,andlt;/Iandgt; Mary LoVerde has a better idea. andlt;BRandgt; Showing us that the opposite of control is not chaos but contentment, LoVerde demonstrates how to counter the natural urge to assume responsibility for andlt;Iandgt;everything.andlt;/Iandgt; In place of frustrating and futile controlling strategies, she gives readers straightforward techniques for maintaining their energy and keeping their balance no matter what life throws their way. Recognizing that we often confuse control with power, LoVerde delineates six solutions that will help women change from striving for control to thriving with true power: andlt;BRandgt; 1. Pose good questions andlt;BRandgt; 2. Pay attentionandlt;BRandgt; 3. Predict your Achilles' heelandlt;BRandgt; 4. Partner with womenandlt;BRandgt; 5. Pause before judgingandlt;BRandgt; 6. Position yourself andlt;BRandgt; With her trademark sense of humor and the compassionate voice that has earned her such a strong national following, Mary LoVerde shows us that the result of letting go is not a black hole of dirty laundry and unpaid bills, but a life that is light, free, and joyful.
