Quality vs Quantity of Time

It's a common fallacy in our modern society that it suffices to spend quality time with our families while spending a vast quantity of time on our jobs.

The fact is that a small amount of "quality" time simply cannot replace a huge "quantity" of time when it comes to maintaining relationships; spending 10 minutes of "quality" time with your kids while you are burying yourself in work for the rest of the 7,000 minutes of your waking moments of the week isn't gonna bond you with them.

Quality time isn't quality time if there's insufficient quantity of it!

What then is sufficient? There is no easy answer but if you find it increasingly difficult to communicate with your family members, perhaps it's time to make more time for them...
