According to Pew Research center, in nearly half of two-parent households in Vietnam, both parents work full-time or one of them has to stay apart from home for work. We all know that frequent absences from home due to urgent commitments at work cause the disintegration of a family, fatigue and even they failed in their career or family happiness. Lately, young generation believes that a good financial basis for a good family in the future is an early establishment of career, hence, they strive more to achieve a successful career than to create a family. This makes the situation worse. However, it is possible to have the best of both worlds. Below are 2 small tips that help you own a business along with having your family work alongside you.
1. Maximize your time with your family members
If you strive for success in your career, you must find time for everything and refocus on your priorities. Let’s face it, many industries now require their employee to stay connected to work continuously, thus your work remainder is infinite. Coming home after a long day of work to a sink full of dishes and see your child smiling happily are the greatest things in life. Love is not interested in money. Spend some time unwinding with your family, changing diapers for your babies, join parent meetings, and then tackling some of the not-so-fun household tasks with your beloved wife.
Those are not obstacles that you will never overcome by setting up a consistent routine to keep things in order. Work with your family to exchange each other’s expectations and responsibilities, make sure that everyone all knows what daily chores they need to accomplish and by when and what family members can do to help the others.
Additionally, we know that pressures in offices make you depressed and drive you angry easily. Keep calm and have rational manner whenever you see unexpected curveballs in your family. For instance, one of you two forgot to remind your child that they had a big assignment which is due tomorrow. Rather than blaming on each other or giving punishment, order a pizza, gather members and roll up your sleeves to dig into that big homework assignment.
2. Make time for yourself
Take care of your mental health, ask yourself, what do you want, what do you desire in your life. This is easier said than done but it is a huge necessity. Focusing on earning money to maintain a roof over your family’s head, making sure homework is done, completing all the household chore etc account for a huge portion of your time. Thus, you gradually lose sight of yourself and deplete your energy. Remember that you have your own needs and only when you satisfy these, you will really fulfill the needs of your family and employer. Rewarding yourself a lovely scarf after a busy week is a suggestion.
