You see, I’m a normal guy with a family, 3 kids, have my own professional career. I’m currently doing my Ph.D studies in semester 2. Yes, it’s still early as Ph.D normally requires 6 semesters. At the same time, I have to settle a consultancy project them I’m in charge off before I started my studies. My research requires me to write technical papers and publish them a lot. Not only in international indexed journal, but also write in book chapters and in magazine as well. That’s seriously not easy, but that’s a challenge I need to overcome.

At the same time, I was elected as the president of Post Graduate Society at my faculty. Wow…another big task and responsibility for me. In my research group, I’m responsible for a few things as well. I run a homestay business with my wife and colleague, which is quite profitable.

My task as a researcher/students occasionally demands me to continue my job at home. That’s the problem!!!

I always bring back my work to home but the problem is I CANNOT do them at home.

Why?

Because, no matter how… I can’t focus on those job at home because my mind and heart will only drive me to my blogs and internet / online activities. For instance, I have to correct and improve my ph.d proposal that I need to submit tomorrow, but I can’t find the strength and the will power to do it. I’ll lose the battle at home… I’ll lose to the desire of creating and establishing my online empire.

Are you facing the same thing? Same problem? Please help me…

Share and Enjoy

  1. Home is a great place to relax. And a nice place to work too. But too nice is a problem. It happens to me too. Enjoy too much movie and TV series at home and did not blog.

    Motivation helps me to concentrate. The goal that I set drive me go further. Take a rest in a while is okay but not too much. ;)

  2. Haha… no lah…

    Seriouslah, my blogging and online activity is the main reason i cannot focus at all at home… huhuhuhu

  3. my lecturer penah cite bout herself.
    dia kate, anak kecik dia terkilan bila tengok dia busy buat keje kat uma.
    sebab, sepatutnya, bila kat uma, itu adalah masa untuk bersama keluarga.
    dan bukannya masa utk bekerja.
    yang pasal blogging tuh, maybe you could just take only a few hours to settle it down.
    ‘berat mata memandang, berat lagi bahu memikul’.
    it’s true.
    but, that’s how life should be.
    fair and square.
    =)

  4. Yes, that is right Hajar. I agree with you. I accept that as a reminder for me. I need to balance myself not to be selfish. I need to allocate some time with my kids as well. Yes, I need to be fair and square… :)

  5. Oh…please…don’t mixed up your blogging with work… I don’t do that… The most is I only answer comments.

  6. “with great power comes with great responsibilities”
    a muslim, a son, a father, a husband, a student, a professional.
    yup, i understand, it really-really-really hard to juggle all the responsibilities at one time.
    good luck on your time management. ;D

  7. I’m having the same problem too bro..keeping up with work, family and blogging really worn me down.. But guess what? I’m always excited to come home to be with my kids…especially my youngest son.(although he could be so hyper at times)..and best of all, I can browse through my favourite blogs (including this one) when they are asleep.. We can do it bro!!!

  8. Wah….thanks for the understanding. I really appreciate that. Time management is indeed a very important element in my life now… huh…

  9. Wow…we are in almost in the same situation. That’s cool. I mean we can share things and we understand each other’s situation.

    How many kids do you have?

    I’m so touch when you say cyza sector is one of your favourite blog…huhu… thanks bro…I really appreciate it very much… :)

  10. takdelah fokus sangat. Kerja aku takdelah susah sangat. Cuma kena banyak berjalan ajelah. Masa rehat, sempatlah gak aku siapkan job-job yang dah nak dekat expired tuh. Haha..tapi kerja aku, mesti siap tip top. Kalau tak, boss pecat aku. haha..setakat ni, boss aku sangat kamcheng dengan haku..

    lagipun, kerja aku takde kaitan dengan internet. so, memang tak ganggu sangat. kalau kerja aku memang pakai internet, memang haru biru dibuatnya..susah nak wat keje camtu..kejap2 fikir nak memblog aje..

  11. It’s ok… no need to advice…we just give the priority to our family… That’s the most important thing…
