My family is my why. My wife and my four children, soon to be five are a dream come true. Making memories will always be far more important than making money. Your children will never remember the balance in your bank account, but they’ll always remember the TIME you took to create memorable moments with them. Take the time to leave the imprints on their hearts that will last a lifetime. You’ll NEVER regret it. With all of that said it’s also essential that you show up in life in ways that will give you the ability to have options of how to make those memories happen. Never forget that it is our RESPONSIBILITY to show up in life in ways that provide us and our families the best life offers.
Children LOVE when they get your time and will always greatly admire your example. Being with them uninterrupted gives them an up close look at both. Always remember, that view they get of your example will turn into the example they are to their children. How do I know that? I have lived it and created it by watching my own parents. As my life continues to unfold, I appreciate the special undocumented moments that happen during times like this week more and more. I will continue to work as hard as I possibly can to give our family and all the families around us in our businesses and communities every opportunity possible to create those moments as often as possible.
