As a father, once a year I get to relish in the accolades I receive from my children (and, sometimes my wife) on what an exceptional dad I am. I love it. I definitely eat it up. Who doesn’t bask in (at least for a day) the joy of being the beloved one? I even love the multi-colored, animal tie that doesn’t seem to match anything I own.
The day can also make me nostalgic for the time gone by. As the saying goes, “with children, the days can proceed painfully slow, but the years fly by.” If you are paying attention, there is a wealth of knowledge we all gain upon indoctrinating ourselves into parenthood that we can apply to our business lives.

• time management is a necessity, not a class we were required to take.
• patience truly is a virtue - how many different ways can I answer the question “why”?
• sharing is highly recommended…for anything and everything.
• instituting the golden rule really does solve most person-to-person conflicts. Who knew?
