Parenting Hack: Pick Your Kids Up From School
One simple hack that can help you balance your work with your family is to take on the primary responsibility for picking up your kids from daycare/aftercare.
I’ve always picked up the kids before 6 PM, which forces me to leave the office.
Anyone who wants me to stay later, I simply tell them, “I get charged $4/minute for every minute I’m late.”
Erecting a hard, consistent boundary trains the other people in your company to respect your schedule.
