Well, we just launched a new company last week. We have over 50 people at work. There are some issues with some of our raid controllers. We are looking for a bigger office. Blah Blah Blah…
I have all these issues to deal with at work, but you know what I did the last three days? I swam with my kids. I swam on Thursday (With wetsuits even, since the pool hadn’t heated yet) , then on Friday for a couple of hours, and then today for another two hours.
Work is extremely important to me, but my family is infinitely more important. I have tried to structure my life so that work can excel and still leave time for my family. I realize not everyone is lucky enough to have it that way.
When my 3 year old twins call me and say, “Daddy we want to swim, when are you coming home?” What can I say? I have to come home. They are only little once. I want to take advantage of every single chance I get, and you should too!
Next time your kids asks you the best way to make a lego spaceship I hope you can take the time to show them how important their interests are to you, I know I will. I don’t want to be the Dad that says, “Ok, just let me finish ____ first” and then never gets around to it.
Ok, enough preaching, my kids want me to watch survivor with them. I gotta run…
