We live in an age where we bring a lot of our work home; it’s unavoidable. The lines have blurred between the workday and family life, with duties crisscrossing back and forth day and night. It’s the world we live in. We can probably blame it on increasing competition, never ending demands, limited resources at work, and the desire to be active in our children’s development. We can also probably thank technology for allowing us to get it all done.
One thing I have definitely brought home from work for this back-to-school period is SMART goals. Anyone in human resources or anyone who has filled out a performance review at work has heard of SMART goals.
