A friend of mine recently wrote “In business, as in marriage …” This jumped out at me because I had just seen someone else give an application of business concepts to marriage – an application that did not work. Don’t get me wrong, I follow several business blogs, and I get a lot of good ideas that I can apply to marriage – but what works in business is not always going to work in marriage.
My bride is my only customer – if she does not like what I offer, I can’t decide she is out of touch with the times and market to others. My bride is also my only supplier for certain things – she has a monopoly, and I had better understand that!
I could go on, but you get the point. If you are business minded, is your marriage suffering from your failure to differentiate between good business practices and good marriage practices?
Details here in the next day or two!
