#19 – Jamie Brasseur – Time Management

Ryan interviews Jamie Brasseur. Jamie was the first guest on the podcast when it launched earlier this year. I wanted to have Jamie back on for a couple of reasons; firstly, because of how he immediately jumped in to help me out when I was having a hard time a few months ago. I was in a rut and still trying to understand what my role was as the father of a newborn. I posted about it on social media and without hesitation, Jamie called me to check in and chat. That conversation meant the world to me because I know that a lot of dads struggle with the same issues but it is seldom discussed. The other reason is the main topic of the conversation. I asked Jamie what the hardest part of being a dad has been for him. His answer? Time management and balance.


  • Kids growing up immersed in technology
  • How the most difficult part of parenting can shift depending on the development stage
  • Covid exacerbating time management
  • How communicating a plan as a couple came about
  • Typical day’s priorities
  • Not being transactional with your time
  • How Jamie’s days are different now that he’s back at work
  • Typical afternoon routine with his son
  • How things are different today versus last year
  • Difficulty juggling working from home
  • Incorporating children into chores
  • What does being a good parent mean to Jamie?
  • How do you want to describe the pandemic to your child in 10-15 years?

About the
Day by Day Dad

I’ve spent 15 years working with people and companies to solve their issues. My penchant for problem solving and research led me to search high and low for more information on becoming a dad. The idea for the Day by Day Dad came about from the lack of information on what to expect when you’re going to be a dad. I also wanted to make sure that the information being given is positive and optimistic!

Along with expecting my first child with my beautiful wife, I have two incredible dogs and love Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, ice hockey, exercising, food and much more. So follow along on this journey of a lifetime!
