What Are People Saying about this Title?
I recently finished reading 'When Work & Family Collide' by Andy Stanley. If you find it hard to balance family and work life, you should pick this up and read it now. It is a great resource with practical steps to help you to find a good and healthy work/family balance. You can read chapter one here. The book is split into two parts. The first part describes the problem. When work demands more time and energy, often you family is the one who suffers from the lack of your time and energy. Andy states it very simply, "someone is going to get cheated." The question is will you cheat your family or will you cheat your job. The second part offers a strategy for making changes to your work/family balance. It all begins with the decision to make a change followed by a strategy using wisdom and tact to follow through on those changes. Once the strategy is in place, it will need to be tested to see if it is going to work. Whatever you do, you have to act. You cannot wait for a different job or another season to come along to make things better.
