time management

posted by .

As I spend more and more time working, I spend less time with family and friends. However, my career and financial success are important to me.

How do I balance the time I spend making money versus time I spend with people?

What are some critical questions I may want to ask myself to "decide" how much time to spend making money versus time I spend with people?

In my honest opinion, spending 100% of my time with either is unhealthy and will not enable me to achieve personal goals.

Thank you!

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. It is important to find "balance" in your life. I'm sure you've heard "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," etc. Here are some ideas that may help you:

    Leo, your "honest opinion" is exactly right.
    The sites that SrMacGin gave you will give you some practical ideas.
    However, there is no one magic answer.
    It is a day by day decision. Keeping a calendar is a good way to begin.
    Put on it those events which are vital. Put on it those business requirements which are "SOP".
    Then put on it those events which will give you enjoyment.
    If you don't have room for the enjoyment, then you need to negotiate some of the SOP.
    Then don't sweat the small stuff. Organization helps, but the main thing is to strive for balance. When you are beginning - sometimes you have to make hard decisions about what can be negotiated and what can't.
    THEN, pray for some 26 hour days. <G>
    Good luck!
