BEAR VALLEY, Idaho -- I learned all about hard work from my father who accomplished more before the sun came up than most folks did all day. 

It was rough watching my father work as hard as he did to provide for his family. I could tell he was struggling to find the balance between his professional and personal life.

Flash forward thirty years. Here I am, a clone of my father, as my mother would say. I struggle with the same things he tussled with for so many years.

How did I get here? Its simple, my priorities were all messed up!

I started to realize this was happening to me a few years ago. So I made a decision to change my priorities. From that point forward my work would never come before my family. And when I made the decision, something fantastic started to happen. It all became clear, the time I was spending with the people I love was providing me with the much-needed physical and mental rest to be a better father, husband and professional.

What’s the moral of the story? Become more efficient with your time. I’ve come to learn that I can get much more accomplished with a clear and rested mind than I can by forging through my workload when I am exhausted and frustrated.

It may sound like a cliché but I have found a way to work smarter rather than harder and it has improved both my family and profession life.

Enjoy your weekends and vacations and leave work behind. Walk in the office Monday morning revived and ready to conquer the week in front of you.

Meet Our Most Valuable Player Alex Pieters Pieters Insurance - Minden, Nevada MINDEN, Nevada — A small community of just more than 3,000 residents east of the southern tip of Lake Tahoe, Minden, Nevada, is a quiet little town in the heart of the Carson Valley.

For just about a quarter of a century, Alex Pieters was one of a handful of police officers in the county seat of Douglas County.

Knowing the community as he does, it made sense that Alex would hang his shingle in this community that once boasted it was a getaway destination for some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Clark Gable and Jean Harlow.

Alex understands that to succeed in a small town, being competitive with price is important.
