–Do use a calendar to stay organized with business and family commitments. The Mac iCal and Google Calendar are great tools for sharing events with family / friends and helping everyone stay on track.

–Do ask for help when needed whether that is family pitching in to help or hiring part time help for your home and/or business.

–Do stay flexible. Just as your children grow and your marriage matures, your individual, career, family and marriage needs will also grow, change and develop. Stay open to changes and grow with them.

–Do what’s best for you and your family. Don’t allow others to dictate what the best option is for you, your family or your business.

do's and don'ts–Do review your business services / products and look for ways to improve and/or add on new services.

–Don’t try to do everything yourself. It may be worth it to contract out certain tasks to save time and allow you to focus on what you do best.

–Don’t miss out on treasured moments with your children and your spouse and become a workaholic. Remind yourself to check in occasionally on where you are spending your time…. and where you are not.

–Don’t allow constant interruptions to prevent you from being productive. Allow the answering machine to answer if needed and close your email if you need to focus on a certain task.

–Don’t waste time running errands every day. Consolidate your errands and to-dos to one day of the week if possible.

–Don’t live with regrets. Take time to enjoy the blessings your have every day. Focus on the positives.
