There is always going to be more work to complete in the office so if it comes down to spending a few extra hours in the office or spending time with your children, set aside time for your family. As you rise in the ranks in your career, it can be especially hard balancing family and work time, but your kid’s childhood is important. You’ll never be able to buy back that time. Also, if you’ve set aside time for your spouse for date nights, don’t compromise these for work either. You will have really overwhelming work days but your family shouldn’t feel like they come second to your career, no matter how busy you are.
