Recovering Workaholic Dads Podcast
Brad shares his thoughts about creating a life plan and vision statement, and does a deep dive into friendships that matter.
Brad’s vision for friends includes people he would walk 1000 miles for and who would walk 1000 miles for him. These are the deep, meaningful friendships he is trying to create in his life.

Brad talks about the time-focus concept. In your life, you will get more of what you focus on. So, if you focus on work, your life will become all about work. If you focus on health and fitness, your life will become all about health and fitness.
The goal is to give bits of focus to important areas of your life on purpose, rather than allowing any one area to rule your life.
