Balancing Work and Family

As a work at home dad, I can appreciate trying to balance life and work and failing miserably.  But, I have learned to be present when my daughter is around.  No staring at the laptop to check emails or Facebook. I work in spurts when she is napping or a night after she has gone to bed.

At times it is hard not to want to check in, but…  She will only be little once, and work will always be there.

Check out these tips for balancing parenthood and a career –

Back in your grandpa’s time, a man was just expected to bring home the bacon and was excused from being too hands on in the child rearing department.

Change Your Language, Change Your Life

Check in with yourself: throughout the day, periodically stop and note how you’re feeling and what you’re thinking. If you’re being negative, change the channel in your mind to something positive. I love to listen to the radio in the car. When a song comes on that I don’t care for, I don’t suffer through it, I change the channel to something I like. Do the same with your random 50,000 thoughts. When a negative thought pops up, change the channel to a good thought. #lifecoaching

Is your life hard? Perhaps a change in your language can help turn things around. It did for me. I used to be very negative all the time. I mean like darkly, depressively, existentially negative. Until I learned that changing my language could change my life. My wake-up call started decades ago with a conversation with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. She asked me how I was doing, and I replied, “Well, I’ve been having a hard time lately.”
