Today I’m asking the question: “what matters most… To your kids?”

It’s something I’ve been thinking about since speaking with Jonathan Fields, this past Tuesday’s guest.

Through his Good Life Project podcast, Jonathan has been a HUGE mentor of mine. Tuesday we found out who some of Jonathan’s mentors are; one turns out to be Milton Glaser, a man who helped Jonathan realize the value of structuring your life so that you prioritize the things that matter most.

What mattered most to Jonathan: time with his wife and their daughter.

This dovetails nicely with what matters most to our kids: it’s the time we spend with them.

I get to re-share a favorite expression of mine today:

Kids spell love T-I-M-E.

Even in this crazy-busy season (if you’re listening in real time), this is the thing that matters most.

I leave you with a question this week: how can you carve out some time to just be with your kids?
