Last week I said I was quitting something every Monday. By quitting some less important things, I make room in my life for more important things.

This week I’m going to unplug for a few hours every day to spend time with my family. In particular, I’ll go offline from dinner until the kids go to bed. That’s no small thing, because it takes ten hours to put six children to bed.

With an iPhone in my pocket, the temptation to check one of my four email accounts, feedly, Facebook, The Wall Street Journal, LinkedIn, and whatever else seems to ply at my attention is just too great. And, really, do I need to know what you’re having for dinner (thanks, Instagram!) while I’m having mine?

So I’m going to try to be more present to my family in the evenings.

I’ll see you after the kids are in bed.
