Family Planning

Involve your family in your design of an ideal lifestyle. Make this an ongoing part of your relationships. The more people get a chance to discuss a course of action, the more committed they will be to whatever is finally decided.

Some time ago, a good friend of mine sat down with his wife and children to discuss the fact that he was working too much and not spending enough time with the family. They imagined how they would spend their time as a family if they had no limitations. Everyone contributed ideas, including the young children.

As a result of this exercise, they made some decisions about both time and lifestyle. They decided to move out of the city to a larger home with a bigger yard in the country. He reorganized his workweek so that he worked four days per week in the city, 10 to 12

hours per day, and then worked only three or four hours on one day in his office at home in the country. He ended up spending much more time with his family and getting far more satisfaction out of life. The best part was that both his results and his income actually increased with this new plan.
