It’s a big balancing act when it comes to love, work, family, friends, and private life. The trick is getting what you need when you need it and making sure others get what they need from you. Prioritizing and flexibility. With those two tools, you can make almost anything work. Yes, at some moments a few of your major priorities will have to fall by the wayside, but as long as you’re aware of what you’re doing, you’ll be able to pick them up again in no time.
