Have you ever fantasized about stepping off the ever-accelerating treadmill of work to gain some kind of balance in your life? This practical, hands-on guide will show you how you can stop fantasizing and actually move from the fast track to a more satisfying, healthier, less work-focused lifestyle.

John Drake, himself a former high-level executive who chose to downshift, offers realistic, doable alternatives to a work-dominated life. He'll guide you through all you need to do to make a good living, yet find more free time for yourself and those you care about most. He examines numerous alternatives, including:
- Flextime;
- Lateral and downward moves;
- Shortened work weeks, and more.

This book is the first to show how to put specific downshifting options into action. Real-life stories of people who have successfully downshifted show how you too can stop dreaming and take decisive steps to implement real change. Drake guides you through all the stages of preparation, from examining personal fears and psychological readiness to analyzing the impact on loved ones and personal finances. Once you're ready to initiate changes, he provides practical strategies and specific guidelines for selling downshifting plans to your company.

Whether you're just beginning to contemplate a work-life change or are eager to downshift, Downshifting provides the guidance, tools, encouragement, and proof you need to create a more balanced, relaxed, and fulfilling life.
