Issue: I'm working at home, but still don't seem to have the time for my family, career, and social responsibilities.
Call to Action: Working at home is still "working." While it does provide an opportunity for you to spend time on the activities you value in life, there is still a need for balance and organization--just like in an office.

Now rank these according to importance in your life. Choose which you will keep and which you will toss out.
