17 years since yesterday

Take care not to let time slip by.


No matter how busy life tends to be, and for a self-employed business owner it gets pretty hectic, always place the ones you love at the top of any list and create as many moments as possible with them. Life pulls us in a lot of directions; add to that a business … spare time for what might be classified as “small stuff” is swallowed by the seemingly “more pressing” stuff. Reevaluate the “in the moment/more pressing” vs. “What am I missing?,” “Will I have this chance again?,” and “Is everything I am chasing in balance with all of its costs?”

Take it from a teary-eyed dad: No matter how busy life tends to be, always place the ones you love at the top of any list and create as many moments as possible. Saying, “We can do that tomorrow,” seems harmless enough — it’s only a day away. Just don’t let 17 years pass before you notice!
