Kind of funny, kind of disturbing that we can never avoid the battle for balance. Got a new update from Family First- a great organization, from my perspective, helpful information and obviously the result of a lot of effort. They are looking for a new Director of National [Somehting- will have to look it up]. What caught my attention was that this position requires 50% or more travel. Is that really Family First, to be away from home more than 50% of the time?
My job requires some travel, couple days every couple of months. It is no big deal with the family but I would prefer to be home with them. I can’t imagine being away half the time. I would go nuts. As you can gather, I will not be applying for this job (again, great organization and would love to work with them, but not in this capacity- although HQ in Florida is a draw in and of itself).
