One of the common regrets for many busy executives is that work demands and career opportunities peak exactly when their kids are growing up and need their attention. The traditional concept of work-life balance advises separating work and personal time completely, but is often impossible to achieve. A more modern and practical school of thought advises work-life integration, which implies becoming comfortable with the fact that you will need to answer some emails and calls while attending to your personal needs. Setting some boundaries is important though, so you are not constantly wallowing in multi-tasking anxiety. Some ideas here from the co-founder of WeWork.
