Achieving Balance

A family's schedule will stay organized when everyone in the family is committed to it. And that commitment will develop if everyone in the family has a sense that the schedule is fair. This sense of fairness will exist when

  • You've assigned everyone in the family an appropriate share of the work.

  • You've given everyone's interests an equal amount of attention.

  • Your expectations of how much the family will accomplish are not impossible or unreasonable.

    tip

    Here are four quick ways to free up time:

    • Stop watching daytime television.

    • Take advantage of free services such as in-store gift wrapping and automatic payroll depositing.

    • Establish a separate email address to use for non-personal contacts.

    • Concentrate on what you're doing instead of talking on your cell phone at the same time.


  • Everyone knows that you've planned the schedule carefully, you update the schedule regularly, and you'll adjust the schedule if there's a good reason to do it.
