I ask for what I want and no longer make assumptions of what expectations are. Family does come first for me, and I am clear about how and when I can travel and work on off hours. It took years for me to be comfortable knowing that results, not clocked hours, are what matter. When I am home, unless there is a true work emergency (which are hard to really justify) I am paying attention to my family. When I am at work, I am focused and 100 percent dedicated to the day and goals of my team. Balance is now.
