In Protect the Primary: Part 1, I discussed my main goal through the Covid-19 crisis. Right now, keeping my kids happy, healthy, growing, and engaged is priority number one. Using David Goggin’s definition from “Living With a SEAL“, my kids are my “primary”. And I’m going to protect them through this situation. The thing is, […]
