How do you do it? Balance eludes me. Giving my family the time it needs and deserves and being out of the house to connect people and opportunity can be a challenge. Many events and opportunities occur first thing in the morning or in the evening. These days I try to make sure I consider schedule as far in advance as possible. I schedule time for myself and time for family as an appointment – just like I do for anyone else. It’s an exercise in learning what works and what doesn’t as well as making priorities based on my mission. Connecting to my mission and my roles on a weekly basis helps, but I still feel as though one or the other gets slighted.
