What is your priority? Make money as much as you can or spend quality time with your family and your job is second or low priority..?

Wisely said...but sometimes it is difficult to meet the demands of work and family. I would be glad to please my family and my boss at the same time..It is difficult to have a good balance..

It actually depends on an individual's status in life. Money used to be my number one priority when I was single. I wanted to get ahead of my co-siblings and peers that I focused my energy then on all money-making possibilities. Money then enable me to get the best in life and all the material needs I desire. Things changed when I got married and give birth to a child. Family matters most to me now. Financial security comes only second.

If your boss wants you to work Overtime frequently and your performance depends on him..but your wife is asking you to spend more time at home??Will that mean you rather go agst your boss and spend time with family?

For me family is of more importance than making money. This is because family is the ultimate and first objetive of all money making programs. Jobs or money making programs are essential but family is more essential by attention. Thanks.

well i am a bread winner so basically i dont spend much time with my family..but i do work not just for me but for my family as well...if you take a closer look..prioritizing work or making money is another way of saying prioritizing your family... :)

if i don't make money how do i feed my family. If i don't look after family what for i make money. so I keep balance between family and making money. Weekends i will be with my family and the rest of days i make money.

my first priority is my family but as of now i needed to earn more for my children needs so i try to balance it by spending quality time with them and not taking home my work. Even if i want to spend my day with them, i cannot because i also work full time so i just alloted 2 days in a week to spend time and go out with them.

Hi, 1qazxsw2! Both are important to me but if I need to choose, I will choose my family. Living in this world nowadays, it is not easy if you don't 'make money' but whatever it takes, the priority will go to family first. If I have a good family bond and spend quality time with my family, there will be no doubt that I will excel in my career too :) Anyway,I am not that career-minded woman. I put my family above all :)

Right now, making money is important than anything else. Maybe 10 years later,I start to plan for family making. In actual fact, both are important.

Family is the most important to me ... nothing to compare with family.. you use money to compare with family. I feel it's so insult family.

I will take family for priority ,and I think my family is the most important in my life.without them,it is meaningless with no matter how much money,so no matter how I am busy,I will spend time with my family.

I think the most important is family, but if you can earn more money,you can bring the whole family more happiness.
