Principles For Life #4

#4 > I will continually work at developing love, happiness and loyalty in my family and acknowledge that no other success can compensate for failure in the home.
I've lost count of the number of people I've known who have sacrificed priceless time with their loved ones to make money or build a career. And the whole time they are neglecting their family... they say they are doing it for their family. I have seen men become extremely successful at their jobs, but in the process, become complete failures as husbands & fathers. This is not right. And further more, it is not necessary. Nor is it worth it in the long run.
What about you? Is your work life & family life out of balance? Do you put your career or your bosses happiness, vision & goals before your family? If so... STOP NOW! You will regret it later. Find ways to work smarter. Look for times to put in any extra work after you have taken care of your loved ones personal (non financial) needs.
Remember this... if you want love, happiness & loyalty from your family, you need to give it to them first.
Best of success, Chuck Norris
