Time Poor Soul Rich

What is the biggest casualty of your busy life? Is it Creativity? Serenity? Intimacy? Time Poor Soul Rich explores 16 casualties of a busy life that can be soul enriching if not ignored. Author Anne Winckel appreciates many women have little if any discretionary time, and in this book she assists time-poor women to move back into a habit of caring for themselves – rather assuming they need to take time off from work to elevate their well-being out of survival mode.

Time Poor Soul Rich provides sixty-second solutions for a busy professional woman to maintain a rich soul when she is inescapably time-poor. The book suggests quick ways to re-engage with different casualties of a busy life – such as generosity, creativity, spirituality and serenity – and it explores obstacles to soul enrichment such as guilt and self-sabotage.

This book is collated wisdom from Anne’s family, friends and acquaintances, and from her own life’s journey. For over 25 years, Anne has been fascinated by the journey that women travel in business and in the professions. These women often have multiple university qualifications; multiple skills, gifts and talents (and often multiple children); and they negotiate challenging and time-consuming paid work, much of it taking place in a traditionally male dominated environment.

They are also frequently managing numerous home duties with minimal if any discretionary time. The juggling act can be at circus-level proficiency. Anne tells the stories of a number of these women – sharing both their successes and their struggles. Anne combines a light-hearted and whimsical tone with a serious look at the issues that challenge the well-being of professional women.
