Early mornings became my best friend once I had kids. Managing to put 2 to 3 hrs of work Sat and Sun before they are awake means that I get to spend more time with them during the day.

If I were required to go to the office on Sat, I am 100% sure that I would just quit. My family comes first. I am so grateful for our flexibility of working from home.

I do the same! I am up at 5a working before we get our day started. It’s the only way I manage.

Sorry to hear that EY1. Whenever you have had enough, Crowe and others will probably welcome you with open arms. We hire a lot of experienced employees from B4.

How do you make that work? I tend to stay super late when I can, then my sleep schedule is way off. Just discipline? Make yourself do it?

It takes time, but get yourself to bed earlier and wake up early no matter what. Is just building a habit.

I used this to study for CPA and now with work. Off busy season, I wake up early and clean the house, so by 7 or 8, I feel like I accomplished a lot.

Glad you guys have that option! EY makes family life impossible

well, good night sleep is essential in this formula... take care of yourself to take care of others, go to doctors to make sure you are sleeping well (sleeping doctors), and be smart with your time. As you progress on the career you do more and more stuff, and thats because you learn how to manage better (only one of the reasons) not because you have more time

How late are your kids sleeping? Mine are up by 530 so no early morning working before they get up unfortunately.
