Australian Prime Minister Shares Advice on Balancing Work and Life

Work life balance is a "hot" topic these days in the lands down under. In Australia, Prime Minister John Howard is expecting a grandchild later this year. He told reporters he fully intends to take time out to "babysit" as needed when visiting Sydney. The Prime Minister also shared that he often gave this advice to new members of parliament who had families and faced work/life challenges: "It is possible in your busy life, in public life, to spend time with your family and friends . . . the first rule is you ring your wife or husband twice a day, and when you are at home, you spend your time with your kids, you don't spend all your time on the phone or your head buried in papers."
