How do two-career couples manage in a one-career world?It's about Time examines this mismatch between outdated scripts and the experiences of dual-earner couples. It broadens our understanding of occupational and family career strategies couples use in light of the widening gap between their real lives and the outdated work-hour and career-path roles, rules, and regulations they confront. It's about Time draws on the data from the Cornell Couples and Careers Study to demonstrate that: *Regardless of income, time is a scarce commodity in dual-earner households. With two jobs, two commutes, often long work hours, high job demands, business travel, several cars, children, ailing relatives, and/or pets - time is always an issue.*Time is built into jobs and career paths in ways that make continuous full-time (40 or typically more hours a week) paid work a fact of life in American society. *The multiple strands of life--career, family and personal--unfold over time. Spouses move through their life courses in tandem, with early choices - to have children or not, to work long hours or not, to switch jobs or not, to relocate for his or her career or not--all having long-term consequences for life quality and for gender inequality.The evidence from this book suggests that it is about time for the United States to confront the realities and needs of contemporary working couples and indeed, all members of the new workforce. To do so requires more than Band-Aid, short-term (and often short-sighted) policy remedies. It's about Time argues that it is essential to re-imagine and reconfigure work hours, workweeks, and occupational career paths in ways that address the widening gaps between the time needs and goals of workers and their families, at all ages and stages of the life course.

Award-winning reporter Carolyn Castleberry brings workable solutions to help women discover and apply the right strategies for time management in their lives, freeing them to invest themselves in what really matters. American women are in a time crisis. There's just not enough time. They are doing more but enjoying it less. Fueled by both internal and external pressures, they run from task to task without pausing to ask themselves, "Do I really want to do all this stuff? Why can't I get a handle on managing my time?" How can they find true time balance in their supercharged, over-scheduled lives? Carolyn Castleberry, anchor and co-host of Living the Life on ABC's Family Channel, has not only asked herself these questions, but she has interviewed countless accomplished newsmakers over the years. Determined to bring workable solutions to women, she commissioned a national survey on women and time. Roughly half of those surveyed feel busier than they did five years ago (50%), don't feel there's enough time to get everything done (45%), and say they don't have enough time for themselves (43%). One in three women (34%) described themselves as overwhelmed. This book delivers proven, effective strategies for time management. First, it offers women a chance to take a self-test to see where they fall on the "time-balance scale," a tool to assist the reader in diagnosing her time management style in order to apply the right strategies and biblical principles to fit her needs. Castleberry describes five major groups of women when it comes to time management: the Overwhelmed, the Procrastinators, the Pressured, the Self-Stressed, and the Balanced. Once diagnosed, readers discover the unique factors standing in their way of effectiveness. They explore the time traps that need to be avoided -- those habits, decisions, and disempowering thoughts and words that literally steal time. Then with smart biblical strategies in place, readers will discover how to select their true priorities and invest their talents, careers, and selves in living to do what really matters.

“[An] impressive history of timekeeping.”—Horn Book Bruce Koscielniak, in this Common Core text exemplar, tells the intriguing story of the many years spent tinkering and inventing to perfect the art of telling time. When time itself was undefined, no one knew the difference between a minute, an hour, and a day. Then people started creating tools to measure time. First they used the sun, the moon, and the water, but soon after people began using their knowledge about the natural world to build clocks and to create calendars made up of months and years. Centuries later, we have clocks and calendars all around us! This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 4-5, Informational Texts)
