Most designers are extremely passionate about their craft. Unfortunately, that means they also find themselves wedged between their love of work and responsibility to their family. How can you find a good balance between the two? Frankly, you really can't.
Fortunately, designers tend to go through cycles of high creativity followed by a calmer period of rejuvenation. Just let things unfold naturally and see where the flow takes you. Mix up the project work whenever you can so that natural cycles don't disrupt projects that require a higher degree of creative vision.
Of course, most business situations don't come in "waves of creativity" so designers must learn to work within the constraints of time. Use those constraints to your advantage— learn to use chunks of time effectively and give you focus, whether you're at work or spending time with your family.
