Live a balanced life

“I’ve always had trouble establishing the boundary between work and family. If I didn’t have the kids I would just keep working at night and over the weekends and I would end up getting staler and staler. But I don’t have to force myself to be with the kids; I look forward to it, and I prefer it. It’s just that I’m not strong enough to stop working. It has been great for me because I go back to work refreshed, so work benefits a lot from my fathering.” – Peter Newman, environmental scientist, author and educator.

  • Having a family forces you to stop work and spend some time focusing on other things.
  • When you work for a more balanced life you do better in all areas.
  • Knowing that you have truly tried your best to be a good employee, father, spouse and member of the community is a great way to end your day.
