When you hustle it is easy to put the most important priority you have to the side, your family. The song “Cat’s in the Cradle” is a 1974 folk rock song by Harry Chapin and laments a father’s perspective of his focus on the hustle and losing out on his son. He sings:
“And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon, Little boy blue and the man on the moon. “When you comin’ home ?” “Son, I don’t know when.We’ll get together then.You know we’ll have a good time then.”
