I always was a person who just went with the flow of things. As an adolescent and towards becoming an adult, I realized if I wanted to make a true impact on my life, I needed to learn the power of time management.

The reason is simple, I wanted to be able to make use of the time I had in a day. When I was young, this was easy because I only needed to focus on myself. But, when I became a parent, well sh*T, my way of doing things seem to cause more stress than help.

When you have kids, it’s a lot harder to stay on top of things. You not only need to show up for yourself but for the likes of others – in this case your kids. And that sh*t is hard. Not doing so, can result in you being a bum as a parent — No-one wants that label.

So you have to create a game plan that really dedicates time around them and their development.

It took me a while to get here. To be frank, I have more than one child, all under the age of 6.

What Motivated me to change?

It was my oldest son. He was actually the reason for this shift. It didn’t truly occur until he went to school…
