I recently read about Sean Payton, the New Orleans Saints coach, after he won the NFC championship. According to the AP article, Payton said, “It was just good to hug them (his kids) and be around the family and enjoy the time. There never seems to be enough of it.” I’m sure he’ll be even busier as he gets ready for the Super Bowl on Sunday.
So you see, if you sometimes feel like you’re too busy to stop and hug your kids and spend time with your family, you’re not that different from a pro football coach.
The lesson: You don’t find time for hugs, you make time for them.
