Fantastic Friday - Balancing Home and Work When Priorities Change

Fantastic Friday - it is fantastic to be able to continue to balance home and work when priorities change.

Each Fantastic Friday throughout the month of November has been dedicated to the work//home balancing act.

This Fanastic Firday is all about balancing home and work when priorities change.

Most families in America have at least one parent who works for pay either inside or outside the home. This means their are obligations that shift in priority. For example, when you have a major project deadline on Monday and major changes happened on Friday morning, your job will have a major priority over the weekend, which is normally family time. Simillarly, if your ten year old starts throwing up on Wednesday night and Thursday morning has a fever, is still vomitting and in pain, your sick baby is your priority. This example is not unusual, it is part of life as usual for working parents.

 

In the world of changing priorities between home and work, preparation is key to success. When at home, it is important to make your spouse and children feel that they are important, special and one of the reasons why you work. When you have established a reputation as a person who loves family, appreciates family and believes family is one of the most important things in the world your family will be understanding when you have to put in exta time at work.  At the same time, when you have established a reputation at work as someone who comes to work and works, doesn't spend the work day on personal matters and gets the job done, when you have to take time off for some personal emergency, it will be more easily accepted.

The bottom line is that your reputation at home and at work influences how those around you look at you. You must take care to create a good reputation as a person who is trustworthy, honest and cares about home and cares about work if you want to have each side be understanding when you must temporarily  give a priority position to the other side. So the question for you this Fantastic Friday is have you prepared your home and work for changing priorities?
