Balancing Networking and Family
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.
