When’s the last time you turned off the cellphone and focused 100 % on the people you’re with? 

Challenge yourself and your loved ones to turn off the digital interruptions. The email will be there when you turn your phone back on.

There’s no prize for working the most hours per week or making the most money.

The question is how much joy you’ve brought into people’s lives and how much have you made the world a better place.
