entertainment industry coach question 606: How do I juggle family life and the 3 things I do in the industry?

You, like everyone else, in every industry, can only do one thing at a time. I mean literally, not that you have to focus on one area. So, it all comes down to scheduling. I don't know what three areas you are focused on, but in 2005, I was juggling a personal life, an 8:30-5:30 job, executive producing a tv show, writing the scripts, and starring in it.

It all comes down to time management. I was just watching Sex and The City 2, and a big theme was not how much time you spend with the ones you love, but the quality of the time you spend. You have to decide what works for you and your family time-wise, and then give time to each of your passions as they "call" to you.

If feels overwhelming because you haven't scheduled the time into a calendar to see how manageable it can be.
