About this item

What do you do when your life feels as busy as a three-ring circus?

Juggling Elephants tells a simple but profound story about one man with a universal problem. Mark has too much to do, too many priorities, too much stress, and too little time.

As he struggles to balance his many responsibilities without cracking under the pressure, Mark takes a break to attend the circus with his family. There he has a surprising conversation with a wise ringmaster. He leaves with a simple but powerful lesson: Trying to get everything done is like juggling elephants -- impossible.

So Mark begins to think about his work, family, and personal life the way a ringmaster thinks about the many acts in a three-ring circus. He discovers that managing his various acts can be fun and easy once he changes his attitude and follows his new friend? s ongoing guidance. Mark soon realizes:

? If you keep trying to juggle elephants, no one, including you, will be thrilled with your performance.

? A ringmaster cannot be in all three rings at once.

? The key to the success of a circus is having quality acts in all three rings.

? Intermission is an essential part of any good circus.

Juggling Elephants is a wonderfully lighthearted guide for everyone who feels like they? re about to be squashed. It will help you better focus your time and energy, so you? ll be able to enjoy more of the things that are important to you. Above all, it will teach you how to run your circus, instead of letting the circus run you.

The book was perfect for me as someone who is always trying to get it all done. The book gave me a framework to better focus my time and energy, and it's easy to recall the key points because of the circus metaphor.
