You’ve heard it said of parenting, “The days are long, but the years are short.” You believe it. Yet, when that alluring distraction comes along, you’re sucked right in…. Before you know it, your best attention is spent on the “not urgent / not important.”
And that long day quickly ends in regret.
Beware. This cycle can repeat—will repeat—if you don’t break it. Days become years. Years multiply. Children grow, graduate, and move on to live their lives.
Please don’t miss these precious years.
Technology is a powerful tool, but if you do not master it, it will master you.
You already know this, but that doesn’t make it easy.
What did you get on-line to do? Do it.
And then—do something urgent and important. (It’s a simple message, really.)
Unplug, and go hug.
