How Important Is It To Spend Time With Your Family

    Every parent knows that children are a huge blessing, and they do tend to keep you young.

    They also keep you from turning into a worthless, sad, and lonely old man (and woman).

    So, if you want to reach that point, you need to take good care of your family and spend time with them.

    Spending Time with your family is different from just having a family.

    It means knowing your family, knowing how to relate to them, knowing how to give love and receive love, and knowing how to have fun and live well.

    Spending time with your family is one of the most important things you can do with your life.

    It’s a good thing to spend time with your family if you have an opportunity to do it.

    But how important is it really to have time with your family?

    It’s easy to say that family time is essential. But most of us don’t do it.

    If you think about it, our jobs require us to work together, be family-friendly, and spend a lot of time with our family.

    So, even if we are doing our jobs well, it’s easy to feel like we don’t have the time to spend with family.

    If we are doing these things, it is easy to feel guilty, guilty, guilty.

    If we are spending a lot of time with family, it’s easy to feel guilty, guilty, guilty.

    The only person I know who is happy and full of gratitude when she works 12 hours and leaves the office by 5:00 PM and has a hard time getting to her family, is me.

    I do my job as well as I can, and I leave the office at 5:00 PM so that I can enjoy the rest of my family’s time.

    It’s not only the children who suffer.

    As a family, it’s easy to feel like you are doing a lot of work when you are working and taking care of your family.

    We say:

    • “We’ve got to go somewhere,” but really we are saying:
    • “We have to go somewhere before we can get home.”
    • “We have to go somewhere,” but really we are saying:
    • “We have to go somewhere before we can spend time with each other.”

    So, even if you love your work, you’ve got to start looking at how much time you spend at work.

    Most people spend 8 hours or more of every day at work. Even with health insurance, people get paid for this.

    So, ask yourself this question:

    If you had the same health insurance as the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company, how much time would it cost to buy a private jet?

    Many people spend $4.00 per hour on their health insurance.

    How much money would it cost to buy a private jet for yourself for a whole year?

    And that’s just the amount you spend on health insurance.

    That doesn’t include the other money you’d spend on health insurance. It doesn’t include your time.

    To spend less time at work, it’s only going to cost you time, money, and energy to find a better job.

    You will spend more time with your family, more time with your friends, and more time with your loved ones.

    Time

    Most people spend about 4 hours a day on their jobs.

    $4.00 is the amount of money it would take to buy a private jet for your family for one whole year.

    4 hours a day is enough time to spend with your family.

    Even if it’s with no interruptions, and you don’t even need to use a computer to do it.

    To spend less time at work, it’s only going to cost you time and money.

    You’re not just spending less time at work, you’re spending less time.

    Even if you go to a job that only takes 2 hours a day, you will still be working.

    That’s 40 hours less a week you’re spending at work.

    So, it’s time, money, and energy.

    It takes a lot of energy to work

    If you’re a doctor, it takes a lot of energy to go to school for an MD, and it takes a lot of energy to be in practice for 20 years.

    Let’s put it all together. If I had 4 hours a day, it would take me less than 7 years to spend $200,000 buying myself a private jet.

    So, even if you spend only 2 hours a day at work, it will take you about 15 years of paying for health insurance to save up enough money to buy a private jet.

    And you are not just paying for your health insurance, you’re paying for your family’s health insurance.

    Of course, a single jet would only be able to fly one person.

    So, at that point, we have two options.

    We can either buy a private jet and fly people on it, or we can do a lot more work and buy our people more benefits.

    To spend less time at work, it’s only going to cost you time, money, and energy to find a better job.
