Guiding Principle, Quote or Mantra

Decide what are the two to three most important things in your life and move towards them every day.

When You Tripped Up

It took a while for Mike to realize this, but his biggest trip up was that he was more interested in providing solutions to his partner instead of listening to her.

The “DUH” moment that changed your partnerships forever

Mike was at a point in his life that he was in relationship mode. He was single, but very interested in being in a relationship and settling down.

He met a woman and pursued her hard. And it was really hard to pin her down.

His “DUH” moment was recognizing that she was not in relationship mode. She was in career building mode.

Finally, Mike realized that she was not available to focus on a relationship and moved on.

Proudest moment in partnership

Mike met his girlfriend Kelly while he was in “go have fun” mode and had plans to move to San Diego in a month and a half.

Her boundaries and her openness about what made her happy that had Mike change all his plans to move and stay in New Jersey. And he couldn’t be happier about that decision.

What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received?

Listen to your woman. Don’t solve her problem.

Boundaries give your partner a roadmap to your heart.
