This Entrepreneur Schedules Time to Play With His Kids. Here's Why You Should, Too.

Making a timetable for your personal life might sound cold or uncaring, but it's actually about setting boundaries and defining values.

Every day between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., Entrepreneur Network partner Greg Rollett has reserved a time slot on his phone. During that time, he is home with his family.

It sounds a little cold at first. But, look at it another way. During that three-hour block, Rollett has made it clear that no one can schedule a call or work-related meeting with him. That way, when he's home, he's actually present at the dinner table or when he's playing with his kids. He isn't checking email or trying to set something up for the next day. 

In that way, it isn't as much about blocking off time for his family as it is blocking out distractions that could keep him from doing the things that are important to him.

Click play to learn more about how Rollett likes to schedule the things that are important in his personal and business life, and how it can help you sort through your own priorities.
