The Book

What People Are Saying

In a world that has gone from 9-5 to 24/7 in a generation, our ability to lead a professionally productive yet reflective life is increasingly challenged. A time of professional disengagement offered by a sabbatical is invaluable. The chance to cultivate personal interests and family and friends free of the demands of the office and Blackberry leads to a richer life and thereby a refreshed perspective when returning to work. These four writers understand this and offer wise counsel. Take their advice and take a sabbatical. –Peter H. Darrow, Senior Counsel, Cleary Gottlieb Steen and Hamilton
No one can live their life at a nonstop pace. "Reboot Your Life: Energize Your Career & Life by Taking a Break" is an advisory read for those who want to set their life on a more thoughtful path, by taking a step back away from it – all to better assess one's hopes and dreams and where one is going on their current path. "Reboot Your Life" is thoughtful and insightful read for anyone who wants to live at their best productivity. –James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Midwest Book Review

Did you recharge your cell phone yesterday? What about your laptop? Have you taken your car in for a check up lately? And when was the last time you took the time to recharge yourself? Not just for a day, a week or even a month—but for an extended period of time. When is the last time you took a real break?

The book includes real-life stories and exercises to help the reader figure out how to plan for and take a sabbatical, or how to use unexpected time off.

More Americans are choosing to take time off from work to relax or re-examine their priorities, so they can return to work energized. Many companies offer formal sabbatical programs, but how can the average person take time off to evaluate their direction, explore their passions, and make time for the things that are really important? Whether you’re disillusioned with your career, yearning to follow a dream, or taking time out after a layoff, now is the time to step back and reboot. This book will show you how you can give yourself the best gift ever–the gift of time. People who take sabbaticals report feeling happier, and they return to their jobs refreshed, reinvigorated, and ready to tackle new challenges.
Reboot Your Life draws upon the experiences of the four authors and their interview subjects: 200 people who have taken sabbaticals and 150 organizations offering sabbatical programs. The book includes real-life stories and exercises to help the reader figure out how to plan for and take a sabbatical, or how to use unexpected time off caused by job loss.

The Sabbatical Sistersare four successful executives from diverse fields. After meeting, they discovered that they were all sabbatical veterans, and dubbed themselves the Sabbatical Sisters. They wanted to share the concept of “rebooting your life” with others, so they wrote this book. They hold retreats and workshops to help people plan and create support systems for taking a sabbatical, and offer consulting services to businesses and organizations looking to build or invigorate their own sabbatical programs.

Reboot Your Life was awarded a 2012 Nautilus Book Award, joining the ranks of other accomplished authors such as Deepak Chopra, Barbara Kingsolver, Eckhart Tolle, Christiane Northrup, Julia Cameron, and Gary Zukav. Nautilus Book Awards recognize books that ”promote spiritual growth, conscious living, and positive social change, while at the same time they stimulate the imagination and offer the reader new possibilities for a better life and a better world.”

We are happy to announce that this past August 2013, in response to overwhelming requests from our readers and retreat participants, we published A Journal for Inspiration: Reboot Your Life.  With one specially chosen quote from our personal collection on each page, the journal offers a place for readers to both reflect on their journeys and find inspiration along the way, and perfectly complements the process of reading Reboot Your Life, the book.
