    I would have to take some time off in the midst of an important project due to my cousinís wedding

    I am working in a software company. I am in the midst of a very important project and donít want to compromise it for anything. But now my cousinís wedding is coming and I would be forced to take some time off for the same. I donít want to upset my boss. What to do in such a situation?

    Hello,
    Your problem has a great solution.As your work comes first ,simply give it more importance.
    You can courier a very nice gift for the couple and send a card garlands of flower for them.
    You can apologize your inconvenience in attending the ceremony and you can promise to arrange a short party after wards in your presence.
    I am sure ,this will really work and they will be happy.

    Hi,
    If you decided to go in your cousin's wedding then in this case just prior information to your boss is required. Because its your duty to inform your boss, so that any urgent project not suffer in your absence.
    Also you can do 1 thing, as you mention that you are in midst of very important project so if it possible for you to "come in week ends" and try to complete these urgent project. You can also do this and ask your boss about this matter. And i am pretty sure that your boss will agree on this option.
    So do hard either you want to stay more in office hours or week ends, because this show your dedication of work to management team/boss.
    Thanks..

    Hi Dear,

    I totally agree with you that work comes first and work should never be ignored. I can even understand that your cousin's wedding is also important for you but my dear friend, I have seen people who have sacrificed their happiness by not attending their real brother's and sister's wedding because of some important project and trust me I feel a similar kind of sincerity in you.

    Moreover, success demands sacrifice and if a situation demands we should be prepared to give such sacrifices. So, in my opinion, if you feel that even a day's loss in your project could pull you down and hamper your growth in future, avoid going to your cousin's wedding as of now and focus on your work. Once your project is over, you can enjoy with them and I am sure you would feel more satisfied at that time.

    Hence, talk to your friends and family and be open about your work and its crucial phase. I am sure they would be supportive and stand by your side at this time.

    Wish you luck!
    Ritz

    AS you are telling that it is very important project for you.You can't give up your work and attend for your cousin's wedding.So,work hard for your project.try to compromise your cousin and tell her that you will give good gifts for her wedding try to convince her.But make your work suffer.
    all the best
