There are reveral heated discussions and arguments on work-life and how to maintain a balance. Should we work longer than necessary and make the family suffer out absence or spend more time with the family and ignor out desires and aspiration?

A story is told of “a hardworking man who delivered bread as a living to support his wife and children. He spent all his evenings after work attending classes, hoping to improve himself so that he cuild one day find a better paying job. Except for Sundays, Father hardly ate a meal together with his family. Whenever the family complained of not spending enough time with them, he reasoned that he was doing all this for them.

His examination result were announced and to his joy, Father passed, and with distinctions too! Soon after, he was offered a job as a senior supervisor. Like a dream come true, he could now afford to provide his family with life’s lttle luxuries. However, he continued to work very hard, hoping to be promoted to the position of manafger; and on order to make himself a worthy candidate, he enrolled for another couse. The family complaned that e was not spending enough time with them, he reasoned that he was doing for them. But he often yearned to spend more time with his family.

Father’s hard work paid off again and he was promoted. Jubilantly, he decided to hire a maid to relieve his wife from her domestic tasks. He also felt that their three-room flat was no longer big enough, it would be nice at being promoted again.

How would this man maintain work-life balance? Should he spend time with the family and ignore other aspirations? Or should the family aspiration continue to take him away? If you’re the man, what would you do? If you’re the wife or the children, what advice would you give your father?
