Flip the Switch Between Work and Home

"Make a mental switch on the way home. If that's not possible, give your family a signal when you've shaken off the day and are home at last. Take a shower, change your clothes, or even wait to drop the tie until you're ready to be mentally present with your family."

- Marshall Shelley, from the article "Winning the War for Family Time," in the Building Church Leaders Assessment Pack, "Time Management."
