A new book claims to show that being an active, committed, and healthy person can help you grow in your job as a parent.
The book, by Harvard Business School professor Michael Greger, claims that being a successful person is important not just to a career, but to your life, and that people with more successful families tend to have more fulfilling careers and happier lives.
Greger says that being “good parents” are essential to achieving success.
“If you can be an attentive, caring, and engaged parent, you’re going to have a greater chance of making it as a successful adult,” Greger told Business Insider.
“I’ve seen the benefits of a good family life.”
According to the book, being good at both parenting and work, and being able to prioritize work over children, is a big part of being a “good parent.”
“When you have children, you have to figure out how to spend time with them, to spend quality time with the kids, and to work on your own schedule, to manage your time, to be productive, and get to the right place for the work that you do,” Gregers said.
“When you do this, you can actually grow your skills and your knowledge.”
It’s not the only book to make the claim.
In a 2015 book, The Power of Habit , the author and his colleagues said that having an active lifestyle is a crucial skill for a successful career.
And in the book The Mindful Work Habit , he claims that people who are good at their jobs and good parents tend to outperform people who struggle to do both.
Greger and his co-authors claim that people should try to balance the two, even if it means trying to work less and get more done.
“If there’s no work, if there’s nothing that you’re doing, you shouldn’t try to do work.
If there’s work, there’s a lot of pleasure in doing it, but if you don’t do it, you will get bored, and then you’ll do things that you don
