Most marriages are successful when couples draw the fine lines between work and home. Some would even say that the key to a successful marriage and family is never ever bringing your work at home. Unfortunately, for many, in their desire to provide their family with a good life, would often be sucked into the black hole called ‘work’ and would often sacrifice their personal life, family life, and their marriage.
A pilot at 18, aerospace engineer at 21, business leader at 31, business owner at 36, and with 16 years of experience living and working in Asia, while supporting a young family, Karen Pierce, who has been married for 36 years to her A-type personality and equally dynamic husband, is already considered as ‘expert’ in marriage.
For Karen, a speaker, work-life balance coach, and author of the upcoming book, It’s My Time: Perfecting Balance in Your Priorities, Passions, & Purpose, marriage can be enhanced by bringing your work home. Sounds ridiculous?
Not to her.
In an interview with Between the Lines with Corine La Font, Karen enlightened the audience and explained on how bringing work at home will make marriage work.
Between the Lines with Corine La Font opened the doors for persons or businesses interested in sharing air space to help educate and empower its audience to live the life they were meant to live, have the successful business they were meant to have, and generate the visibility and credibility they were meant to achieve.
In the engaging interview, Karen shared that marriage will work by bringing our work into it and applying the same principles and practices we usually do at work, such as:
- Putting up together a winning team (husband and wife team) to achieve success.
- Taking charge of our personal life the way we take charge of our career.
- Just like company policies are set and observed at work, setting non-negotiable rules in marriage also apply.
- And just as ‘we begin with the end in mind’ principles at work, we should also begin our marriage with the ‘end’ in mind that being married is forever, no talk of the D-word (divorce).
Additionally, Karen shared that, “People nowadays have been working around work 90% of their time, and the res,t they are trying to fit life in which put more priorities on their work rather than their personal life. By turning our mindset to making our work ‘work’ around and make it only a part of our life, we can all live a life we desired.”
And thus, in her book, It’s My Time, Karen laid out a powerful system for creating and living the life you desire, the one you’re designed to live — a rich, loving, personal life, a dynamic and rewarding career, and enjoyable time.
