Work less and spend more time with your loved ones

Today is the second anniversary of my dad's passing. My dad passed away suddenly two years ago just weeks before my wedding. What really broke my heart though, was that both Father's Day and Mother's Day fall in August and I had made plans earlier with my parents to go out and spend two whole days together, but then my server had a hard drive problem, so I moved the date to the end of the month and spent the long weekend working.

Time is never enough for a sysadmin, but now I try to spend as much time as possible with my family. If you are reading this, take a moment to call up your loved ones, take the weekend off and spend time with them, buy a book on time management and read it. Do something, before it's too late.

P.S. Takuya Kimura is not my dad.
