DE­FINE YOUR OWN BAL­ANCE —

Eric has a lot on his plate. He’s wise to split his sched­ule in half, work­ing less when he has the kids and work­ing a lot when they’re else­where. Peo­ple who need to travel for work can do the same thing. Work long hours when you’re gone, be­cause there’s no op­por­tu­nity cost. When you get home, work fewer hours so you can be fo­cused on your fam­ily. It all evens out in the end.

SE­DUCED BY THE SNOOZE BUT­TON —

The snooze but­ton is evil. Nine-minute chunks of sleep don’t give you the deep restora­tive slum­ber you need, and you’re not get­ting out of bed and start­ing your day ei­ther. It’s the worst of all worlds! De­cide the night be­fore when, re­al­is­ti­cally, you in­tend to get out of bed, and set your alarm for that time. Then en­joy every last minute of sleep right un­til that mo­ment.

ASK FOR HELP —

Eric in­vests wisely in fam­ily sup­port. One per­son can’t be in three places at once, but you’d be sur­prised how many peo­ple try, and then won­der why they’re al­ways late for kid pickup.
