Work hours have begun steadily creeping into our home lives with more and more people taking care of job issues on weekends and during the evening. The result is an environment in which it is even more difficult than ever to balance our personal life and careers.
Achieving a happy work/life balance becomes much more difficult without the setting of clear boundaries. Fortunately there are things you can do to ease the situation. One good tip is to set priorities. If you have twenty five things that need to be done on a certain day, narrow that list down to the ones that are absolutely essential. Not only will you be less stressed from not trying to do everything at once but the quality of your work on the ones you do take on will also be demonstrably superior.
It is also a good idea to choose the tasks that need your personal attention. Any tasks that can be done by anyone should be delegated wherever possible. Nobody can do everything; we can only do our best.
