I frequently get questions about how to raise six kids while still being productive, accomplishing objectives, and changing behaviors. What I actually do, though, is all the productivity-related activities because of my children. My lifelong goal is to be the best father I can be, and although while there are many areas in which I can still grow, I believe that, overall, I’m currently doing a fairly good job.
