Time to Catch up with Family

I was fortunate today to have a relaxing morning catching up with a Cousin of mine. We do not see much of each other and it has been forever since I have seen her children. This is my fault as I get caught up in work and projects. I end up being so busy that I neglect the people around me, like extended family and friends. So this morning was a nice change to my busy schedule and spend some time with extended family and friends.

I know, you must be thinking that my life must be quite sad if I do not prioritise time with my extended family and friends. To a point I would agree with you. I think that I should spend more time extended family and friends. The flip side is that I also am chasing down a lot of things in my life and as we know, time is the most limited resource we have. The question is what is the balance that you want in your life?


  • So what is the balance that you want in your life between family & friends and achieving in your professional life?
  • Are you at this level of balance?
  • What can you do to bring your life closer to this balance?

  1. When I think about balance, I ask myself what I will be thinking on my death bed. Will I wish I chased down more opportunities? Worked myself harder to climb the corporate ladder? Told my children I loved them more? Spent more time with family friends?

    The top two responses from people in hospices are: 1. I wish I spent more time with family. 2. I wish I had the courage to follow my dream/calling.
