A CAREER WITH YOUR FAMILY

Today, we will be looking at one of the most thrilling topics about career and family. And I want you to know that The career and family of an individual occupies a greater part of his or her life. Imagine a man or a woman who has several issues with the family and is literally fed up with the home and then leaves the house early in the morning and come back late at night from a job or career that is also draining him or her. So, it's important to choose a career or job you love doing not minding the pay. The pay is important but your happiness and fulfilment is priceless. But if you have decided to still work on a job you don't like, because of some personal reasons; I encourage you to find a way to love the job, passion can be developed. Give to the job your best, you owe it to yourself to do that! Also make out time to do the things you love, maybe on weekends or holidays. It could be your hobby, talents etc. Just make sure you are giving your life a meaning. Also, I keep encouraging people to get married to someone who will love and appreciate their career or what they do for a living (after proper assessment). Although It's not a guarantee nothing will go wrong in the marriage but I feel it'll bring a balance in your career and family. Personally, as a computer programmer, I'll get married to a woman who loves, knows or at least has a basic idea on computer programming. Else, I'll teach her. "Wow, are you for real?" Yes am for real!😋😋 Well, I have been conceptualizing something lately, regarding blending ones career and family. And I hope it'll make good sense to you. Now, what if as a lawyer you convert your sitting room or an empty room in your house to a family court. Where you settle your family issues. For instance, your son sues your wife for not bringing him back from school on time or your wife files a lawsuit against you for not buying her what you promised. The family court will be where the cases will be judged, in the presence of the whole family members. And the guilty will be penalized or sentenced to not eating dinner for the whole week. Depending on the family constitution. By the same token as a computer programmer, I will develop a family App. That my kids and the whole family must use. When I say must, I mean must. 😀😀 The features of this app will be a customized group chat, profile page (where everyone will update their details including their birthdays should in-case I forget), duty roasters, reminder and more importantly a GPS tracker to track the location of my kids. When they call and tell me "Dad am in school now", I'll check their actual location to verify. Not that I don't trust my children but as computer programmers we are taught to be meticulous, just as we first debug our codes before compiling. I just feel it's good to somehow involve your career in your family and make them blend. But am not saying if you are a solider, you should come back home with your rifle, grenades, jet fighters and become a soldier in your family. 😂😂😂 All am just saying is, our family and career is what we literally live for and it's where we will spend our whole lives in. Have a replica of what your career looks like in your family. Use the concept of your job to make your family exciting. Take your kids and spouse to your workplace, once in a while, if you can. Let them know what your job or career is all about. I visit my dad's workplace during the holidays. Going there alone, makes me appreciate him more, his skills, creativity, efforts and his personality. And I also learnt through observation that hardwork works! You are not perfect, your career may not be perfect, your family may also not be perfect but God who has given them to you has a way of making them your perfection. Use your intuition, imagination, foresight and insight to build a Career With Your Family. And it might become the greatest innovation of our time! Thank you, I am Johnson Crystal Kalu.
