Every day, ESPN’s SportsCenter shows the top 10 plays for all sports from the previous day. My family and I enjoy watching since some of the plays reflect spectacular feats of athleticism.
Before my kids start one of their own games, we talk about performing well enough to make SportsCenter’s Top 10.
This made me think and evaluate other parts of my life. Do I make top 10 plays as a parent, spouse, business man, writer or even with my health?
What about you? We teach our kids to perform at their best, but are you setting the example. Just know, your kids are watching your every move and making their own judgements.
Which parent are you? The one who comes home, complains about work, expects dinner to be ready, plops on the couch and yells at kids because you can’t hear the TV.
When’s the last time you got up a little earlier and made your special breakfast for everyone? How about that house project that’s been lingering around for months? Maybe it’s time to come home to your kids and play catch, kick a soccer ball or shoot some hoops.
Make a date night with your spouse, and do something you both enjoyed when dating. This will help you remember why you fell in love.
Maybe it’s time to step up your game at work and ask to take on extra projects. Show your bosses that you’re the “go to” employee.
Now, it’s time to embrace your life and make SportsCenter Top 10 plays in every aspect of it. Be the person you want your kids to become. Love your spouse and thank them for all they’ve done for you and family.
I promise, you’ll start loving every minute of every day because you stopped wasting time and have a purpose in life
