Applying Job Lessons to Family

What do you take away from your stress-filled job to apply to your own family?

Our Daddy MD Guide’s reply: It is because I see life-changing events daily that it actually inspires me to cherish every moment with my family. People take things for granted, but I’ve seen time and again lives change in an instant, and too frequently I hear people say, “If I only had another chance, I’d say and do things differently.” We’ve learned to live life at its fullest and enjoy the small things in life, whether it’s a favorite meal, a drive, or just running around doing errands together; we try to get in as much family time as possible.
