There is no such thing as too much success. This becomes especially true when speaking of financial gains and developments in careers.
However, there is such a thing as spending too much time working in order to reach this success., even more so when a person has a family.
It’s important to make sure we have time for our families. At times this can be difficult, especially when there are tight deadlines and hardly enough hours in the day.
I understand it can be easy to become a workaholic. After all, the more we work the more money we will make. However, family is more important than money. Believe it or not, your family would likely prefer your time over your money.

• If You Don’t Already Have A Family, Are Your Ready For One?
This is a highly important question to ask yourself. Some people are at a point in their life where work is too important to put on the back burner. If this is the case and you haven’t already started a family, it might be best to hold off until you are at a point where you have more free time.
• Create A Schedule
One way to ensure that you always have time for your family is to create a schedule. Make sure you stick to this schedule and also be sure to design it so that there is a healthy balance between work and time with loved ones.
• Talk With Your Family
Instead of sitting alone trying to figure out a problem you may be having, try talking to your family about it. Believe it or not, even though they may not be familiar with your expertise, they can likely offer you helpful advice.
• Discussions Before Decisions
Being offered a promotion or an increase in hours is a great thing. However, just because it’s a good thing doesn’t mean it’s something you don’t need to speak with your family about first. Take their input on the situation to heart and respect what they have to say about it. They may prefer more time with you over more money!
