A 1 minute habit to be a better parent


Something I started doing after our first son was born that I recommend to all parents I work with:

Daily Family Journaling

You may be thinking "oh no, not another daily journal habit post"

BUT what I'm talking about is different.

This literally takes less than 1 minute of your time per day.

Here's what you do:

-Create a google-doc

-Every day, when you wake up and check your phone (I know you do this...don't lie)...go into your doc and write ONE memory of your kids from the day before

That's it.

Incredibly low commitment.

But after a few months?

You'll have a living, breathing document that holds precious memories of your kids that you otherwise would have forgotten.

I do this ALMOST every day (sometimes we miss days, it happens)

And it is by FAR the highest ROI on my time of anything I do...

Because in less than a minute, I'm creating a document my family will have forever. The little moments, the funny things my kids did, all of it...

Right there in the document.

Give it a try. Not only will you have the memories saved, but you'll find it makes you more present during the day, as well...

Because you're more in tuned with the idea that little moments matter, and you'll start subconsciously logging the moments in your brain as well.

Thanks everyone, talk soon

I saw a great concept the other day on instagram Sit your kids down and ask them to finish this sentence: "I hate it when my dad _________." Make the setting relaxed and comfortable. Maybe even do it while you're out on a walk or something...that usually leads to more free-flowing conversations with kids. Your kids answers will be pretty illuminating. My guess is most of our kids would probably say something like: "I hate it when my dad yells." "I hate it when my dad isn't around." "I hate it...

By now everybody has heard about the hero dad who tragically passed away at the Trump rally on Saturday. When I first heard the news about Corey Comperatore, I went back and forth on whether I should post about him. On the one hand, I didn't want it to seem like I was being opportunistic. I didn't want it to look like I was trying to engagement-farm off of this man's sacrifice. But on the other hand, I know many people look to me to provide my take when fatherhood is presented so starkly in...

I posted this yesterday and people lost their minds: But most of those people misunderstood it. People frequently ask me about my diet.I say I try to stay in a slight caloric deficit, and I try to eat between 150-200g of protein per day. If I do those 2 things consistently, I leave a ton of room for flexibility and stay at my target weight with little effort. If that's what you want to do, that's why this chart is so helpful. It isn't saying "these protein sources are BAD" ... It's saying...
