I'd like to start out with a couple of quotes pertaining to time:
"You will never "find" time for anything. If you want time, you must make it."
~ Charles Bruxton
"Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein."
~ H. Jackson Brown
Although we all have the same number of days in a week, the same number of hours in a day and the same number of minutes in an hour, we don't all use them the same. Some people are able to use their time wisely, making every minute work for them. They seem to successfully balance family life and all that work entails. Others struggle with their time, not accomplishing all they set out to do. Sadly, I admit, I fall into the latter category.
My goal is to find a balance between my family life and my writing life. Perhaps in my trying to find more balance for myself and my family, I can help someone else who is dealing with similar challenges.
I'm reaching out to all fellow writers and readers. How do you balance family life and work? Do you wing it like I do or do you have a schedule you stick to? How flexible is your schedule?
How do you make time work for you?
