I believe love and respect is at the core of every relationship either personal or professional. Sometimes one might take precedence over another but I remember that it is situational and make sure I am always available to both. It is important to be present and to make the most of the time I have and be honest about what is going on. Personally my wife and I have worked for a long time together so she understands my work and how I operate, so that helps. Also I have a team I have worked with for quite some time and they too understand my work priorities and that I always do anything to the best of my abilities to do justice to it. Balance works best when you are not the only one fighting for it and I try to maintain people around me who can help me. I always seek quality over quantity. Saturdays are for family and I make sure during my leisure time before and after work I make time to be with my daughter, Dia. We take frequent vacations too.
