Family is my priority

Sometime in this life we have to make some sacrifices. That is life. I’m very grateful to have one happy family. I’m blessed with a great job and the opportunity to further my study in the highest level. What else can I ask more?

I realized I have earlier mentioned about arranging my online activities. But then, I also realize that, I need to prioritize my time with my kids, especially to monitor their studies.

Ikhwan, my active eldest son, is in standard one and require serious attention from us (the parents). He likes to play and go to school. But when it comes to doing homework and studying, he needs somebody to motivate him. That’s when we come in. I’m now committed in spending 1-2 hours every night to ensure he can perform in his study, especially in reading Malaysian and English language, jawi and mathematics. I hope we can prepare him well enough before the final examination next month. We want to see him improve his grade in his examination in both his official school and religious school.

Marsya, 5, our expressive first daughter is very diligent and require less attention in terms of her studies. She’s doing very well in her pre-school and we are trying to bring her up to another level. The only thing is her mood which is sometimes unpredictably annoying.

Alya, 3+, our charming third child, is still very small. We don’t really expect her to study seriously for the time being. We want her to have her own sweet and fun time studying at school.

That’s the current sacrifice I have to make. Maybe I cannot call it sacrifice, but rather define it as responsibility. Before this, I have not really paid sufficient attention to their studies. After work, at night, I only focus on my online activities. But, their future is very important and precious to us. We don’t want to gamble their future. We want the best for them. We want them to excel academically and morally and grow up to be good people with great career. We have to do our best to provide them with the best education and support plus motivation + love.

That’s it. I’ll reduce my online time in order to ensure my kids are doing well. I have to re-arrange my strategy because I have to spend more time thinking and running my ph.d research too.

Oh gosh… when can I relax???

My online time will be roughly around 1 hour every night, I’m guessing… And I must proportion it finely to do all the blogging, affiliate, article marketing, SEO, and other making money online duties…

Please, I seek other almost similar parents to share your experiences with me… 😉

Share and Enjoy

    Family is the no. 1 priority. Our kids are best investment. You have the chance watching them almost every night. Watch them growing everyday, listen to them when they cry. Grab the opportunity while you still have the chance… They need you.

    Yep… thanks bro for the advise. I will be there for them…

    ehm..i cannot advice you because i’m still not have a kids.

    So, if for online activities, i guess you need to create target. Like projek A, projek B and others. Create one project and focus to that project. Believe it, you will happy with that and satisfy with your work. Even you might not earn big like you want, but you get both. Your family, your PHD and your online activities.

    Just set around 1 hour for your online activities. Then, you can start focus to your study and family. Focus.

    Ps: Apa aku mengarut nih. Tapi itulah yang aku buat. Kerja kerajaan, nak kena jaga hati ramai orang, nak keje online, nak keje offline, kene jaga hati bos, kawan-kawan perempuan dan macam-macam lagi. Kalau tak kerana fokus, memang aku takkan dapat beli laptop fujitsu dengan black saga aku tu..

  9. Both working husbands and wives should put their family before career. Its not something specific to gender. I gave up promotions for my family before.Both my wife and I work, so we know how much of a juggling act it can be. The best thing to do is support your spouse in their career. We don’t put our career before our children but we put eachothers careers before ourselves. This keeps us going.Thanks for sharing nice post.
