Roles. I had to list them all today for a training exercise at work. Balancing Family and Work, it was entitled. What roles do you have and what responsibilities do each carry, it inquired. The worksheet I was given had half the required slots that I needed to list them all. Sure some of them don’t have daily responsibilities and others need hourly attention while still others, might only need monthly attention. But still, I’m balancing a lot of roles. The training suggested I also list my values and priorities and what I’m doing to show that the things I say are priorities really are. I’ll tell you, as I sat in my gray cubicle 35 miles away from my home where my girls were playing all their after-school activities, the task was daunting. If there haven’t been enough occassions lately that have made me want to throw my laptop in the nearest trash can and run straight home to my babies, I’ll tell you that topped them all.
