The first thing to know about quality time is that you cannot create it. I recently heard someone say “I have to be home early to get some quality time with my kids”,  this is a noble intention but…

Quality time springs out of leisure time, so if you create space and the time to do something pleasureable, ‘quality time’ can arise from that.

Put ‘Create Quality Time’ on your to-do list and it becomes just another item in the schedule, whereas building the schedule around leisure time will more likely to create the effects you want.

I was talking to a friend of mine, John Henden, a few years ago and he explained this to me. Thank you John.
