For anyone who is, or wants to be, successful in business, it can be tempting to put in too many hours and work too hard. When you’re working to make something of yourself at your job, it may be easy to forget to make your family a priority.
Even if it seems like you’re trying to succeed so that your family can have nice things, they would most likely rather have you be present. Being present doesn’t always just mean being around, but also can mean listening, playing, and otherwise interacting with your family.
If you’re coming home late and feeling beat down every day, it’s not likely that you’re doing all that you need to for your spouse and children, if you have any. And if you have children, you’ll probably start to notice how much you’ve been missing, but don’t wait until it’s too late to change.
Keeping a proper life-work balance can be hard to do, but it is well worth it in the end. After it’s all said and done, your family should mean more to you than your career, and you should try to be there for your family a reasonable amount, while still taking responsibility for your job.
