Then it hit me...
Too often when my wife or kids approach me to talk I use the "too busy" excuse. Too often, I am telling them that I do not have time for our family, that I do not have time to listen to their occurrences, expectations and hopes.
Next time, when I want to play with Lupe, the dog, she will look at me thinking, “stay away, I am tired... you had your chance.”
So here is the lesson for me:
No matter how busy you are, always take time to listen, to be attentive to your wife, to your kids, to your friends; they all are counting on you!
Learn from the past, plan for the future but be crazy about the present… Enjoy life in the moment! - Mauricio Fraga-Rosenfeld
