The Life and Work Balance – Great Read

I just read a great post by Allan Branch of Less Everything titled “Life over Work” in which Allan discusses balancing your work and family time. Reading through some of Allan’s thoughts on the subject, I kept thinking to myself how simple some of it sounded. But then immediately it hit me that Im guilty of almost every infraction mentioned!
Working from home is a blessing on many fronts. However, there are many drawbacks as well. For instance, its so easy to just walk into my office and sit down at the computer for a second and then the next thing I know, 2 hours have passed while Im working on “just one more thing”. Then its time for the kids to go to bed and I havent spent nearly as much time with them as I would have liked.
So, I created several sticky notes in Dashboard on my Mac and paraphrased each of Allan’s suggestions onto a new sticky note. So every time I hit my dashboard key, there they are, staring me in the face. Hopefully, inflicting some form of guilt to remind me to get off the computer for a while and go enjoy the longer days outside with my kids!
