How Can Your Relationship Survive Your Business – Part 3
In the early days, when I started running this course, I would have a lot of women come but nearly no men. So the first thing I want you to know is that this is not a beat up on men that work too hard and are away from their wife and kids a lot. It is exactly the opposite.
I have met many people in business whose catch cry for hard work, long hours, and many sacrifices has been, “I am doing all of this for a better life!”
Then when life comes tumbling down around their family they can’t understand why.
You actually can Plan a life you want to live in through a Business on Purpose - it is not a myth.
If however, we are constantly BUSY (Buried Under Saying Yes), the simple answer is we may be saying too many yes’s to the wrong things. Saying Yes and No to the right thing is a simple adjustment when you know your values as a family and not just your business values.
For many years when my Uncle would travel to the Blue Mountains to visit my sister and her family, he would tell me of the route he would take and the rest stops that he had planned out. He had his picnic basket and thermos and paced his journey. It would take about 3 ½ hours to do a 2 hour trip.
I would explain how, if he just stuck to the highway and the main roads how much time he would save. One day when I was traveling up the Mid North Coast, I stopped to refuel and was speaking to a tourist in a camper van.
I asked how his trip was going and he answered, “There is not much to see on this road. Everyone was telling me how beautiful all the beaches are in Australia and I haven't seen a single one!”
I mentioned to him that all the beaches are not on this main road, they are on the “Tourist Drives” off the expressway. I recommended some turnoffs they should take and some tourist drives they should follow. I gave then inside information about side roads worthy of a drive and some must-see lookouts.
Getting back into my car, I realised how much of life is missed on the highway; the faster way, the busy way. Yes it is faster, but is the quality of life you want truly measured by ‘faster?’
When Donna and I travel to our family holiday house at Bonny Hills on the Mid North Coast, my kids always brag about how they beat me there and how fast they made it. Donna and I stop nowadays for our cups of tea, hot chips with gravy. We have our rest stops, some now compulsory due to our age and some simply because we want to stop and stretch.
Our course, “How can your relationship survive your business” is a stop and stretch break in your busy schedule of life. It's time to have some hot chips and gravy and learn how to enjoy the journey and not just reach the destination faster.
A successful relationship should be an equal goal to a successful business. So, it may take a little longer on the scenic route but your success will also last a lot longer and be a whole lot more fun. You wont be sick and tired of being sick and tired. You wont grow rich enough to afford your own divorce - ending up with half of what you killed yourself for. Success in both relationship and business is true success anyway.
We will discuss the four keys of any relational success:
- Connectedness - How can we keep it?
- Communication - How can we constantly improve this?
- Compromise - What is healthy and unhealthy compromise?
- Conflict - What's my conflict style and how can I keep away from conflict or deal with it in healthy ways?
