A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove…but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.
I know we are all busy with our careers becoming successful. But if you have children, what drives you to succeed? Is it not them? Who inspires you? Is it not your children? So why let work drive you away from them.
So, today, leave work at a reasonable hour. Turn off your blackberry. Go home and have dinner with you kids and enjoy some quality time we don’t all take advantage of because The National Center on Addictions and Substance Abuse (CASA) has declared the fourth Monday of September as Family Day, a day to eat dinner with your kids!
