I do not spend all day trying to make money without giving time to the family. Even though money is important with the new school season in Malaysia fast approaching, I try to spend some quality time with my family. Thia is one of the major ways to keep family bonds strong. Otherwise by the time realisation sets in it would be too late to repair any breaks in the bonds. Having money without family destroys sanity. I do not want to mention names but I think many of us know at least a brief life history of famous and rich people. all the best, rosdimy

Well I dont think that it is possible for any human being to just make money, unless they are super greedy and have no family and friends. You need to find inspiration from the outside world ie rest your brain from information overload. I must admit it can be hard finding that balance between needing to make money and to see to the family. However obsession with making money can lead you to make rash decisions. Its all about striking the right balance.

I think you need to have balance in your life. it is hared to be able to just give to one thing or another without balancing things out. I think that you have to balance work, money leisure and family. They are all very important and things to strive for.

Family is always at the first place. Nobody will satisfy with the current earning. Make money enough for your living is good enough. Family and heslth shall be at the first place since they are the most important properties for us. That's why i dont relly spend much time on money making.

Sometimes one just goes out of his or her way, in trying to make extra money. That way, forgeting every thing else, and considering nothing but money. Though it's done to better the future of those neglected while in tring to make it. But the truth is, if you die becos you never cared about your health, how can u then spend the money? I dont one is ever buried with money. So it's adviced that, you neglect ur health, or friends or family, while tyring to make money, and when u've made it.

i really like making money but actually im still a student, a full time student so even though i want to spend more time facing my computer and go here, i can't. because of course i have and i know my responsibilities and i think we should not spend too much time for money although we know that money is a means for surviving but dont let the money takes over you, you should be the master of your own money.. and oh yeah the most important thing is to take care of your health so dont take for granted those things.

I'm a stay at home mom, so the only work I do is bits on the computer. I have set times mostly. I work until 10am on the computer, then I get up and do my chores around the house. Usually I'll spend a couple hours in the afternoon just playing and hanging out with my 2 littlest boys. Then I get online a bit longer until my older kids get home. I take a bit of a break to talk to them about their day, and I may either hang out with them, or get back online until it's time to cook dinner. After dinner their in bed and I stay online until hubby gets home, at which point I turn the computer off for the night and hang out with him. On his days off I'm only online for an hour or so and spend the rest of the day with him and the kids. Hubby does work a lot, at least 50 hours a week, and he usually doesn't get to see the kids except for his days off, because they're in bed before he gets home. But Sundays are our scheduled family day where we spend the whole day hanging out as a family. We'll go places or rent movies to watch together.

I really do believe in devoting my time equally amongst coming to myLot and doing some things here as well as spending time with my family. I do make sure that I take time to give my young five year old the attention that he needs. I make sure that he is eating and playing and that he knows that I am there for him. I do think it is important that we spend time with our loved ones and not forget how important they are to us. It is healthy and beneficial for everyone in the family to be together and do things together. The technology of today can render some people to forget other duties and obligations in their lives that really need their attention. Sometimes the new ways of modern technology can make us lazy and not want to do much else. If we don't treat our family in a respectful manner we will sooner or later not receive respect from them and then we can end up pretty lonely in the end. I know that we as adults don't want this to happen. So I would think that we should all dedicate equally a lot of the things that we do especially where the making money is concerned. Money is important but not as important as our health and happiness. Thanks for posting. Take care friend.
