In going back over this article, it reads sort of negative, doesn't it? (SORT OF???) I don't mean to put you on a downer, I just want to make sure that you keep balance and perspective in your life. I want my reminder to serve as your reminder. It's amazing how quickly 'important' things can become unimportant.
It's easy to work a lot when you own a small business (I'll bet you didn't know that…) which makes it hard to achieve that balance and perspective without some conscious effort. Are your priorities in order? Don't wait for that giant reminder to come and slap you in face. The next time you get angry with a loved one, ask yourself if it really matters that much.
One of my favorite movie quotes is from "Mr. Mom", one of Michael Keaton's first movies. In it, he loses his corporate job, can't find another, and his wife (played by Terri Garr) ends up going back to work for an advertising firm leaving him at home to take care of kids. She ends up working too much, so he says these eight words to her.
Now I'm saying them to you:
"It's easy to forget what's important. So don't."
