Looking at the balanced whole -- the work needs, the family needs, the other needs that may be involved, and the possible implications of the various alternatives -- you'll try to come up with the best solution taking all factors into consideration.
To succeed, you need to take that gut feeling in what you believe and act on it with all of your heart.

Nature abhors a vacuum, and if I can only walk with sufficient carelessness I am sure to be filled.
Henry David Thoreau
This life is a hard fact, work your way through it boldly, though it may be adamantine, no matter, the soul is stronger.
