What is the one thing you give your child that you can never replace? Time. You cannot buy it, sell it, rent it or change it. All you can do is use it!
You cannot change the quantity of time you have, but you can change the quality of your time.
- Write down the things that are most important in your life. Chances are that your family will be at the top of the list.
- Try to remember how you have spent your time during the past few days, hour by hour. Does the way you spend your time reflect your priorities? How much time was spent with your children? How important were the things that you cannot remember?
- Make a plan for how you will use your time in the week ahead. Write it down. Include time with children in your plan. Check to see how you did at the end of the week.
We do what we think is important. Deciding what we think is important can be the first step in making time count.
