I have often thought that the sky was the limit for my business life as long as my home life was in order. On occasion, over the 37 years of my marriage, I have experienced how hard it can be if things are not right at home. It is hard to concentrate on business when you are facing issues with the wife or children on the home front. The majority of the time, the heart of the issue was a misunderstanding through the communication process. We assume everyone should act or react the way we would act or react.
For example: The way I normally act in a situation is that I want to get results, so I am too quick to make a decision because I want to solve the problem. I focus on the end goal. My wife, on the other hand, wants security so she will support me in hopes to maintain the status quo. She wants everyone to be comfortable, so she tends to focus on what is accepted.
The problem: When I think she is on board, she is really just being agreeable to keep the peace but there has been no real decision on her part to actually change anything.
The solution: I need to slow down and give my wife the time she needs to make her decision without a lot of pressure.
