Barbra Streisand is an award-winning singer, actress, and filmmaker. With a career spanning seven decades, she has achieved success in multiple entertainment fields. She is one of the few entertainers awarded an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award.

She’s a winner.

We all know the names Madonna, Whitney Houston, Earth Wind and Fire, Chicago, Celine Deon, Chaka Khan, Mariah Carey, and Michael Jackson. However, we may not know the name David Foster.

David Foster is a Canadian American musician, composer, arranger, record producer, and music executive. Foster has won 16 Grammy Awards from 47 nominations and has worked with every artist I have mentioned.

He’s a winner.

We respect winners. We honor them, and we talk about their professional accomplishments in a way that validates or solidifies them.

Do you know how much time it takes to accomplish greatness? In a twenty-four-hour day, great lawyers, coaches, pastors, and business owners spend sixteen hours working and six hours sleeping. That does not leave much room for their family.

I don’t know about you, but I want to win at home.

If you could nominate someone for father of the year, who would you nominate?

How much time did you spend with your family this week?

We often treat strangers better than we treat our household members. Sometimes we take our household for granted and assume they know we love them. Often, we find ourselves disconnected and secluded even when we are all in the same house.

What family traditions do you have for a normal weekday? Do you have Taco Tuesday, where your family eats tacos together every Tuesday? What about game night or movie night?

How hard do we work at making everyone happy at work? How hard do we work to make everyone happy at home?

Is our customer service outside the home better than our customer service in the home?

Three ways to Win At Home:

1. Put down our phones for one hour once a week and spend time together.

2. Walk one mile together one day a week—the entire family.

3. Try family game night once a week.

I don’t know about you, but I want to win at home.

I’m praying for your family.
