They say that it is impossible to achieve success in both career and family. You always have to choose one over the other. But wouldn’t it be great if you can have both? With the fast pacing world, we live in today, we often choose career over family basically because we need our job to feed our family, to provide them with a decent home, to send the children to quality schools, to provide the family with the comfort that they need, so forth and so on. The list seems to be endless. And in our effort to provide our family with all the material things and comfort, we have forgotten to give them the most important and that is our Time.
Sad but true. Countless families are breaking up each day, not because of financial reasons but because parents just don’t have the time to become parents. Husbands and wives grew apart since they no longer have time to spend on each other. These are realities that people today are facing. What to do?
If we are to carefully analyze things the real root of the problem is TIME. So this should be your focus. How you can have enough time for both your family and your career. It may not be easy because there would always come that point when your time for your job would complicate with the time for your family. And often the career is chosen over the family.
What you need to do is to balance your life and a great part of it will entail balancing your time.
