One of the biggest challenges we all have is balancing time working, time with family and time doing other activities. This summer I have been working 2-3 days a week with my kids hanging out with me. On occasion for short periods of time I will bring them into the office. Often I work from home with them. Sometimes we will do fun activities and I am not working certain days.
Its a great balancing act. For work I need to spend time following up, and prospecting so my business continues to succeed. With them home and with a lot of working hours around that I also need time doing outside activities. I like sports and in the summer I play softball. This year I have played more then past years. It has been fun and I have met a lot of new people.
One thing I have done pretty well personally is trying to keep this equal as possible. I have not over worked this year. In the past I had minimal recreation time and this seems better this year. I also feel like I have spent more time with my kids then ever. They are well behaved most of the time and fun to be around. I am thankful and feel blessed to have had such a well balanced summer!
