Juggling work & family’s competing demands

Juggling work & family’s competing demands

As a mother of two young girls, tackling two different roles in my own start-up, and working in a social media marketing agency, I often wonder whether work-life balance is a real thing.  I do experience times when, despite being in high demand, everything seems to run smoothly and I move in and out of my different responsibilities effortlessly.  Other times it just seems like juggling work and family is a complete joke.

Helping your perfectionist child

Helping your perfectionist child

The snapshot of a perfectionist What if you couldn’t tolerate making mistakes?  What if you took a really long time to do things because you had to get it ‘right’?  What if there were things that you avoided doing because you had a belief that you wouldn’t do them ‘good enough’? Perhaps you might feel irritable, frustrated and sad a lot of the time.  As a consequence of feeling this way, your behaviour might be abrupt and grumpy-looking.  Perhaps you might feel stressed at having to always ‘perform’ to a standard that feels very high.  Perhaps you might miss out ...
