Drop the Ball: Achieving More by Doing Less by Tiffany DufuI found this book disappointing, probably due to the marketing as much as anything else. I had seen this advertised as a measured response to Sheryl Sandbergs Lean In, but it merely turned out to be Tiffany Dufus version of the same story. The endorsement by Quiet author Susan Cain had me hopeful - but while Dufu does spend a great deal of time discussing household communication, the tales of her networking activities were more than enough to make an introverts head spin. Its an amazing feat that she gets any work done at home or at the office between all the cocktail parties and coffee dates, even if many of these activities are part of her job description (and that of her husband).
Many readers of Lean In complained that it was out of touch with non-executive women. In this regard, Dufu deserves credit for featuring a few stories of more average, lower-income women (a bus driver, for instance) navigating the demands of unforgiving work schedules, child care, and household management. But I wish she would have given them more attention.
Dufu may not be a Google executive, but her personal story had much the same thrust as Sandbergs, with the drive for a trophy career at its root (even if that wasnt one of her explicit personal goals, her story read this way to me). While Dufu pushes the unrealistic dream of having it all to the side, when it comes to dropping the ball, there is only one arena in which that attitude is ever entertained - the home. It is always mail piling up, home projects that settle for good enough - but I didnt recall Dufu ever describing how she passed off organizing a big event to a colleague so she had a more manageable load. Perhaps this was merely the boundaries the book drew for itself. Ironically, while Dufu is hyper-focused on helping her readers break free of the stifling pressure of the invisible homemakers meritocracy, she merely advocates prioritizing one meritocracy (the workplace) over another (the home). I guess I was bound to be disappointed by a book that presumed all of its readers had their priorities in the same order (but not without some obligatory lip-service to diversity in families and social circumstances).
The main problem with this narrative is that it dismisses the many motivations mothers have for working - more often than wed like to admit, it is not primarily for personal development (though that is always a nice bonus), but in order to pay the bills and support their family (and perhaps because they are terrified that taking a few years off will forever eliminate their ability to gain and sustain a professional job in perpetuity, which again, is depressingly realistic. Western society may have accepted that pregnancy doesnt merit a compulsory resignation, but it has not yet accepted that a few years of raising children full-time does not reduce all of a womans education and skill to a worthless heap). Most working mothers already do most of the things Dufu recommends - such as abandoning perfectionism and control, going to bed on time, and delegating with joy. When theres very little room to drop the ball at home, it makes one wonder why it always seems out of the question to consider dropping it anywhere else. The subtle message is that if women dont want high-powered careers, they dont belong in the workplace at all. Where are the options for women who want to support their families, but dont have their heart set on making it to the top? Why are our only choices go for the C-suite or nothing? Why is the trendy solution to the work-life balance have your husband do more around the house, rather than negotiate a flexible schedule than prioritizes the health of a working mom and her family? Why is it working parents that have to drop the ball, rather than their employers? I wish that Dufu would have asked some tougher questions that would have set her story apart from Lean In.
