That Daniel is an age old question. It reminds me  of a couple of rules of thumb i have remembered, related or not you decide.

1) when i thought during my life, how my children fell into priorities, i used to ask myself , if not for my wife, i wouldn't have kids. I always put her first (kind of what the bible says :) )

2) happiness never was derived from stuff. I have had stuff in my life, and i went without stuff. stuff made me smile at times but never warmed me like my family.

3) above all (except paying homage to the almighty) i have to look in the mirror. and in a man's life, at least it used to be, keeping his word , and doing the best for your customers gives us a feeling that no other can do. finding the balance of doing the JOB , and the pride that it gives us and balancing our family life. is tough. but 300 years ago, the family wouldn't eat if we didn't do our job. literally they could die. While that is no longer the reality of life. It is in our DNA. So that my friend is the struggle, and it said well below, THAT MUST come from within. good luck...sorry to go on. but that is a VERY impostant question.

There are many that talk about it, but the first step begins with you.  No one can help you if you are not 100%committed and willing to do that.  A

I could not help you with that, as this year's business has been absolutely crazy, and probably good thing I DON'T have a family, as they would not have seen me.

 Good Thursday morning Daniel. I got a lot of help when I went through some MAPS coaching that is offered by Keller Williams. I also find that listening to CDs by Anthony Robbins and Zig Ziegler help.

I don't have a dvd or any other media to suggest, but in the 30 years of my business, I have had great success with just bringing the family into the business.

A creative business owner can always find meaningful jobs for the kids and my wife is indispensable.

Great for them, great for the business, and I get to work long hours without guilt.

The One Thing puts it in perspective for me and gets me focused. Family is important and becomes part of the time slots for each day.
