Re: The Toolkit of the Confident Man
While we await the "Mules in Mexico" world tour, I thought I'd provide a short update.
Many of us hear the same lament about "no connection". It's often used to "explain" many things. Lack of romance, etc.
When serial codependent losers hear such a phrase, the tendency is to panic. Start explaining. Start with the probing questions about "what can I do to fix this," etc.
I heard that phrase the other night. We're running a business and my wife is now finding out what I've known for 30 years. Working every day is difficult. Some days, you simply drop dead of being tired. You encounter the personal issues of your employees and try to move the ball forward. There's a high degree of stress involved.
To maintain a romantic connection, you need quality time.
So, I suggested a motorcycle ride on Sunday (our day off). I start hearing about how one of her kids needs her and they do things on Sunday. I suggest we go early - she starts talking about sleeping in.
"So, when we do try to schedule time, we're going to have to fight through bull**** excuses. I'm not ok with that"
I went downstairs.
Within 20 minutes, the text floated in:
"I'll be ready to ride at 11am"
