Publisher Description

The prescriptive follow-up to the New York Times bestseller The Dream Manager

One of the major issues in our lives today is work-life balance. Everyone wants it; no one has it. But Matthew Kelly believes that work-life balance was a mistake from the start—because we don’t really want balance; we want satisfaction. Kelly lays out the system he uses with his clients, his team, and himself to find deep, long-term satisfaction both personally and professionally. He introduces us to the three philosophies of our age that are dragging us down. He shows us how to cultivate the energy that will give us enough battery power for everything we need and want to do. And finally, in five clear steps, he shows us how to use his Personal & Professional Satisfaction System to establish and honor our biggest priorities, even if we spend a lot more time on some of the lesser ones.

"Lots of sound ideas that built in a logical manner. Mike Chamberlain is an excellent narrator."

— Carol (5 out of 5 stars)


  • “There is nothing more difficult, as working mothers and fathers both know, than juggling personal and professional demands without sacrificing their own happiness. We’re so happy to hear a male perspective shared by Matthew Kelly, who shows us how to align our priorities to get what we are really looking for—life satisfaction. Everyone with a job (inside or outside the home) should read this book.”

    — Cathy L. Greenberg and Barrett S. Avigdor, New York Times bestselling authors of What Happy Working Mothers Know
  • “So many people today aspire to be the best version of themselves but slowly sacrifice that vision to the demands of full and busy lives. How helpful to read a work that takes us beyond that constant tug-of-war to a place where balance with grace, rather than imbalance with regret, is the outcome.”

    — Andy Lorenzen, director of talent strategy, Chick-fil-A, Inc.
  • “Matthew Kelly’s Off Balance properly reframes the question of work-life balance into a question of personal satisfaction. I personally believe that living a life driven by a purpose is more meaningful and rewarding than meandering through life without direction. We find that employees, who live their purpose in everything they do, have higher personal satisfaction.”

    — Robert A. McDonald, chairman, president, and CEO of the Procter & Gamble Company
  • “Off Balance is not for everyone—only those who are interested in finding more energy and satisfaction in life. But if you’re one of those, then this short, compelling, and well-organized book might just rock your world.”

    — Patrick Lencioni, president of the Table Group and author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
