One of my favorite quotes comes from Winnie the Pooh. Years ago, one of my girls gave it to me in a note. My girl is not so little anymore, but the quote still resonates.
In Pooh’s own words, “If you live to be a hundred, I hope I live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live a day without you.”
Do you have someone you feel that way about? I hope so.
The truth is, the most important relationships you have are the ones you have at home.
Pooh also once said, “Promise me you’ll never forget me because if I thought you would I’d never leave.”
The words of the little bear might appear soft at first glance, but at the end of your days they will determine the quality of your life.
Focus on your family. You will never reach your full leadership potential in public if you are unable to love in private.
What is your favorite thing about your family?
