I really like some of his quotes and find that many apply to all we go through in regards to our kids. So the next time your kids are really talking to you please keep this quote in mind. (and put your phone down..)
"People do not listen with the intent of understanding. They listen with the intent to reply."
I have shared a link to more of his quotes and list some below that I feel are helpful to "us".
The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.
Live out of your imagination, not your history.
Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.
I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.
You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside. The enemy of the “best” is often the “good."
I teach people how to treat me by what I will allow.
