Work and family are both central to our daily lives, now I have studies too. Time Management is very important. Attempting to balance daily challenges is a source of stress for many of us. Finding a good balance between work, studies and home lives is not an easy task, but the benefits to well-being are worth the effort. Prioritizing is central to effective time management. Juggling work and home life and trying to find time for time with friends and family and on your own is not easy.
First, you should decide what your values are for yourself and your family! Specifying your values is key to managing work and family demands. They tell you what is important in your life and what matters to you.
Secondly, set goals! Goals are important in our lives and help us decide how we use our time. But be flexible too, be open to and try to embrace change. Never get too comfortable, because just as soon as things seem to be under control, they can change.
Finally, plan and communicate effective! Create daily routines and a structured plan each day rather than reacting to whatever comes up. Plan ahead and anticipate your needs. Treat your family as if they matter just as much as the most important business person in the world and don’t miss your “scheduled meetings” with them.
This is my plan how to balance everything, let me know how you do it!
