What is quality time?

A hundred years from now

it will not matter what my bank account was,

the sort of house I lived in,

or the kind of car I drove.

But the world may be different,

because I was important in the life of a child (Forest Witcraft)


Quality Time is a phrase most people associate with time they spend with children and family, or enjoying the things they like to do such as hobby’s and sports. Their job may be important but if you look deep into their heart, these are their true (and sometimes hidden) priorities.

While defining the priorities for Quality Time is relatively easy, the persons or activities you are passionate about, finding the time to spend that Quality Time is not (at least for most of us). Why is that? Are we too busy in life: too much to do,  too little time? Have we ever thought about our real priorities? And could it be that our current priorities do not match the things we are passionate about? Why not spend some time contemplating around these questions? Below are a couple of suggestions that can help you with this:

  • What are the things you are passionate about? Make a list, and match it with your current activities and priorities. Do they match?  Can you make the necessary changes?
  • Can you make your life less complicated? Take a look at your daily schedule. Are you trying to squeeze to much activities into your daily routine? How many of those are really important?
  • Do you have to put a “Quality Time” entry in your calendar to set aside some time to play with your children? I guess this is a red flag something is wrong with your priorities.
  • Are you passionate about your current job?
