You obsess over working to provide for your family
It’s easy to get turned around in life—to forget what you’re really working for. You love your partner and, if you have kids, you love your family. When you work hard, stay for that late meeting, and take on that extra project, it’s with your loved ones in mind. You want to provide for them—a nice house, vacations, and everything they want. But while you’re doing that, you aren’t providing the thing they really need, right now, which is your time and attention. In the pursuit of building a good life for your loved ones, you can fail to nurture those relationships today.
