How To Balance Family And Work
What is one thing the video does not mention for finding the balance?
In this video, I am going to be talking about how to balance work and family and the thing is there isn't really any balance, it is more about finding a way of working that fits with your family situation and the keyword here is flexibility. So, here are my 5 tips to help you balance work and family. #1 is to work from home. Cut out that commute and see if it is possible for you to do some days or all of your days working from home. If you haven't done this before, then may be try out as a test to prove to your employer that you can be as productive working from home as in work place or why not think about starting a business from home. #2 is to be productive, not busy. You see you can get so much more done in less time without any distractions by focusing on things that you really need to get done. So, think about being productive rather than busy. #3 is to get some help. Why are you doing everything yourself if you are just ending up exhausted. Whether it is help from the domestic front or help with your business, then get that support that you need and don't forget about the kids. Encourage them to do more for themselves to free up your time. #4 is to put systems in place. Anything that you do more than once needs to be systematized so everything from your morning routine throughout your day needs to have a system in place to avoid that chaos where your time just gets sucked away by not having an organized place. #5 is to use your time, don't waste your time. So, all those pockets of time that you may get throughout the day waiting outside the school gates or waiting for a bus or may be watching a bit of TV, this could be little pockets of time where you could be catching up on some E-mails perhaps or making some calls that need to be done so that you are not doing these kinds of little tasks while your children are around so that you can focus on them, help them with their homework, and that kind of thing. So, those are my top tips on how you can balance your work and family life better.
