Making 'quality time' count!

November 12, 2008

How often do we hear people say in earnest, "I am going home now -- need to spend some quality time with the family."

And how many of us have managed to do justice to that 'quality' time at the end of a tiring, gruelling work day?

Our hectic work-lives created terms like quality time. Quality time was defined by a working woman from the US who said that quality time was more important than quantity time.

However, many people are now questioning the use of the term. Many in their own ways have redefined this term, putting them in the context of their own life.

TIP #1: Get them involved in your work, take them for a visit to your workplace. This helps your spouse or kids understand what exactly you do at the office, and why it takes up so much of your time and attention.
