 Protect your family time. You’re probably a bit of a workaholic, so be very thoughtful about your evenings. When you get home from work, make it family time: Have dinner as a family, help your kids with their homework. Completely shut down. No phone, no email.
Every family has peak times when they can best interact. If you don’t proactively free up that time, you’ll slip back into work stuff. Either be working or be home with your family. That means no phones at the table, no texts. Don’t just be there; be with your family.
QUESTIONS for thinking it through:
How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
