People with good working habits can ensure one's productivity, but what if they cause family discord?
The key is balance. How? Mix work and play! ;)
Here are 3 rules that might work:
- If you have a scheduled business call while on a vacation with your loved ones, don't give reasons to go away to get your glasses, or leaving the pool, or use a bathroom etc... Honesty is the key.
- The more engaging the fun for your family, the lesser your absence will be noticed. So, be sure to give them one sure fun filled with engaging activities and focus.
- Let your family know a vested interest in your success such as by saying; - "If I get this chance, I'll take everybody out to a vacation. Take note, the office is just close to a theme park!" :)
Obviously, family occasions such as kids' birthdays, religious holidays, etc... should be left work-free.
