As we go into this holiday season, many may find themselves thinking, “I just might have had all the family I can handle.”

The holidays are wonderful and provide togetherness and memories.

But if you work with family, it is very easy to get “over-familied” and with that, a growing sentiment of needing space.

You may find yourself looking at going back to work like another opportunity to stick your hand in the garbage disposal.

If this sounds familiar, it is time for you to consider new perspectives that will relieve relationship pressure and potentially reinvigorate your passion for the business and those you work with daily.

“To set the foundation for a new perspective allow me to ask how your feelings of pressure, frustration, stress, resentment, etc. are working for you?”

Caution, do not allow yourself to think you are the victim of the circumstances.

Remember, our mind is our only true possession.

Within the double hierarchy and standard of both family and business, your mind (opinions, conclusions, and feelings) may be the only thing you truly control.
