Family is the most important thing in the world. – Princess Diana
Why do you go to work? For the thrills and chills, the hustle and bustle? Maybe. But you really go to work to support your family and enjoy a lifestyle with said family. Most of the world goes to work to earn money so that we can spend that money on the people they love. At some point, work became the end result of our living and that’s why we have an ongoing debate about work-life balance. At some point, work became the end result of our living and that’s why we have an ongoing debate about work-life balance.
We find balance when we adjust our priorities and put family back in its rightful position as our top priority. After all, these are the people you will be with for the rest of your life so you might as well put some effort into building those relationships.
So how do you put in a solid day’s work and still have something left in the tank to get home, make dinner, help with homework, play with the kids, tuck them in and spend time with your spouse? By making some intentional choices.
Raise your right hand and repeat after me…
I Will: Put my family first.
I Will: Be present with my family
I Will: Make Awesome Memories
I Will: Be [Parent, Spouse, or Sibling] of the year (or go for D All of the above)
