I recently read a post over at the freelancing blog Freelance Switch that I strongly agreed with and want to share. Being a business owner, husband and father of two, the act of balancing work and family time is very important. This article by Allan Branch highlights some notable points about work and family life.
To add my own thoughts, I cannot stress how important your family is. I love my jobs and all that they offer to my clients. However, I love my family more. I set aside time each day to spend with my family. We sit down to dinner together every day and spend time during the evenings and on the weekends together.
A schedule is key. Setting aside designated time for your family will really help to increase your productivity. Create the boundaries between work and home, and then abide by those rules.
