Those are not my words, those are John Lennon’s late in his career and in one of his less-known songs where he sings to his son. The song is called Beautiful Boy.
Today I heard that quote and it got stuck in my head. I just heard the quote, not the actual song or what it was about, for a couple of minutes, I wandered in my brain thinking what did he mean. So I found out for you today.
Supposedly, John regretted neglecting his first son Julian and dedicates this song to his second son and this ties up to the line “Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.” I skimmed over the work-life balance when I wrote about The Size Of The Vessel Matters.
At the end of the day regardless of your son, a project, sports, or just time for yourself. Invest your time daily in what adds value to you. Don’t take it from me. Take it from John.
