Tenerife - 01.08.2011 - Due to my job I help people pass away often… On their deathbed, no one ever mentioned any work issues - salaries, promotions, business meetings or trips, unpleasant in-laws, picky neighbours, nasty clients, goals, missed assignments … Most mentioned family issues though.


Most of us are going to take some days off during the summer. Let’s try for the next two weeks to find ways to plan that time off, so that we can find ways to strengthen our family bond. I often observed highly professional individuals when it comes to work oriented activities but not so when it comes to planning family rest and family leisure. Remember failing to plan is planning to fail. And failing in family issues is the last thing you want. By the way, feel free to add me as friend on Facebook (Manuel De La Flor or Talk to you in a couple of weeks.
