We started out with very little. We had low paying jobs and one old used car, and rental house that had seen its better days. We were young, in love and all that mattered to us was being together. We spent summer afternoons at the lake. Our idea of a great Sunday was taking a long car ride. Life continued and we found better-paying jobs. Then we discovered credit. We soon had a nicer house, a couple of nice cars and two pretty cool kids. And we were struggling. We wanted to look successful, but we were barely paying the bills. Minor issues, like a sick child causing one of us to miss a day's pay, were a catastrophe! Working as much as possible became our only focus. We used one credit card to pay the bill on another and it was an unending circle. We looked at our friends and found most of them in the same situation. One couple we knew had an amazing house in the best of neighborhoods, but except for a couch and an air mattress, had no furniture. Another couple we knew drove very nice cars but each worked two jobs and they rarely saw each other. We were miserable. However, we still didn't know why. We thought we needed more "stuff". We bought (financed) two ATV's. We loved to ride. We began taking our children riding on our off days, which were rare. After a while it got to be too stressful, so we decided, we needed to go to the mountains to ride. So we invested in all new camping gear, which we bought with our new Sears credit card. (That we applied for in case of an emergency) We began camping and riding every chance we got, but the chances were fewer and fewer since we could not afford to turn down any extra hours to earn money. As it always does, it began to crumble around us. We had everything we thought we needed to be happy, but we were miserable. We looked at our children and realized they were miserable too. They just wanted time with us. It didn't matter how fine their rooms looked. We had put happiness behind possessions. We had ignored the look of sadness in their eyes when we waved at them on our way to work another "off day". The credit cards were to their limits. There was no more paying one with another. The house payment was due, the ATV payments were due. We had no more money. The interest and late fees were mounting. We soon sold the nice house, the ATV's and the other toys we had bought. We moved into a rental house that was in very poor condition so we could start paying down the mountain of debt we had accumulated. In that shabby little rental, we found ourselves. We discovered the fun of playing with our children. We found the rest of actually taking an off day. We rediscovered afternoons at the lake and long Sunday drives. We were broke, but somehow we were finding happiness. Our journey had begun.

Als Ehemann und Vater von vier Söhnen weiß Unternehmensberater Patrick Lencioni aus eigener leidvoller Erfahrung, wie ein stressiges Familienleben aussieht - doch viel wichtiger noch: Er weiß, wie man effektiv damit umgeht. In Lencionis neuer Leadership-Fabel gibt es ein Wiedersehen mit Jude Cousins, dem jungen, aufstrebenden Consultant aus dem Buch Silos, Politik und Grabenkämpfe. An seinem Beispiel erfahren wir, wie schon einige einfache und praktische Werkzeuge ohne großen zeitlichen Aufwand helfen, weniger Stress und dafür mehr Übersichtlichkeit und Freude in das Familienleben zu bringen. Ein ernsthaftes Strategie-Meeting zwischen Windeln und Abwasch? Es mag etwas seltsam erscheinen, Management-Tools und Geschäftslösungen auf das Privatleben zu übertragen. Doch es lohnt sich! Schließlich ist die Familie auch nichts anderes als eine Organisation, und zwar die wichtigste in unserem Leben!

Anleitung zum Müßiggang

Tom Hodgkinson weiß, warum selbstvergessene Angler die größten Karpfen fangen. Er weiß, wie sich die Bürotoilette umfunktionieren läßt, um einen kurzen Mittagsschlaf zu ermöglichen. Und er weiß, dass René Descartes sein »cogito ergo sum« nicht am Schreibtisch, sondern im Bett erdacht hat. Hodgkinson ist nämlich Chefredakteur der Zeitschrift »The Idler« und damit Experte für alles, was mit dem Schlaraffenleben zu tun hat. »Anleitung zum Müßiggang« ist gleichzeitig eine liebevoll recherchierte Kulturgeschichte und eine praktische Anleitung zum Müßiggang. Und natürlich ist ein Buch, das zur Faulheit aufruft, unweigerlich politisch: Eine Gesellschaftskritik, die, obgleich amüsant und ironisch überspitzt, durchaus ernstgenommen werden will. Hodgkinson tritt für mehr Produktivität durch entspanntere Arbeit ein und plädiert für einen gelassenen Umgang mit der Arbeitslosigkeit. Er hat ein Herz für Streiks, für Träumer, Absinth und Walter Benjamin. Von Konsumkapitalismus, Weckern und protestantischer Pflichtethik á la Thomas Edison hingegen hält er nichts. Hodgkinsons Buch ist eine Fundgrube für kuriose Zitate und Anekdoten aus der Geistesgeschichte. Er führt Lessing und Dr. Johnson ebenso ins Feld wie vergessene viktorianische Humoristen und obskure Punkmusiker, und das alles, ohne je die chronologische Struktur des Buchs aus den Augen zu verlieren. Die folgt nämlich den Stunden des Tages, die, eine jede für sich, besondere Herausforderungen an den Faulenzer stellen: Das morgendliche Aufstehen (oder Nicht-Aufstehen), die Frühstückspause, das lange Mittagessen, das Pfeiferauchen, das Trinken - sogar Mond und Sternen ist ein eigenes Kapitel gewidmet, bis dann im Morgengrauen der letzten Kapitel wieder die Vögel zwitschern.
