We’ve all been there: getting home from work just to realize there are still tasks to be completed. As an entrepreneur, it is often times difficult to leave work at the office because you are your company. Therefore, chances are you will have to work into late hours of the night trying to get the tasks you missed completed. This can conflict with family time because instead of sitting at the dinner table you may be in the living room on the computer typing away or making phone calls to clients. The key to balancing work and family time is to leave work at the office. Yes, work is important but family time is valuable. Compromise in leaving work troubles at the door once you step into your house. Leave computers, tablets, and/or iPads outside of the bedroom. This will prevent the urge to check emails and other apps such as Twitter, Facebook, etc. If possible shut off your phone or just place it on silent. When you are at the office, manage your agenda placing urgent tasks at the top of your list. This will help because you will be getting to the tasks that are most important therefore, leaving time for your family when you get home. Balancing time will seem difficult in the beginning if you are one of those people that like getting everything done at all costs. Slow down and realize that family time should also be a priority in your agenda.
