purchase Viagra buy plavix When working with executives and businesses to optimise their time and make them more productive I often ask them what individually their biggest asset is? Most answer their car or their house. Some their share portfolio. Very few their family and even less their kids?
My next question is buying Viagra ‘how much time do you invest in researching the purchase of those assets and once purchased the care and maintenance of each to maintain their performance?’ Most spend large amounts of time preparing to buy the asset and maintaining it afterward.
When I ask the same question about the time they invest in the family and their kids. The time invested reduces significantly.
Let me ask you – as an executive and business professional would you undertake a merge or acquisition, start a new division, add a new piece of technology or even undertake business annually without a plan? We spend so much time each year working on business strategy, technical integration plans and merger or acquisition transition planning, but so little time planning for success in the family.
In business we would never leave the success or profitability of the organisation to chance, so why do we leave the family, the developmental growth and/or the future of our children to chance? I am not talking decisions like which schools they should attend, what sports they should play and which area you should live in, in order for them to have the best networks growing up. All very important, but what I am talking about is the ‘time’ you invest in helping them understand your family values, your personal beliefs, aspirations and why you do what it is you do.
If you were to die tomorrow, what would your children say about you? ‘He spent a lot of the time at the office?’ ‘Thanks for being such a good provider, even though you weren’t there.’ Or something else, equally as profound?
What about your legacy? If the truth be known, unless you have done some amazing things for the world to know about or had a profound impact on the world, your legacy will die with your children. You may get lucky and spend a lot of time with your grandchildren. They may talk about you from time to time to their children, but two generations is really the best you can hope for. If you are not investing time in your children, trying to be a big part of their lives then one generation is probably your legacy lot.
It is not too late to up the investment and start planning for family success – right here, right now is the opportunity to invest, be a hero to your children, reconnect and build a better relationship with your kids.
