Your immediate family is a small team. A team all trying to survive and thrive together. While most roles within the household have already been clearly defined, thanks to our society and mainstream media, how we operate and what makes us prosper is something that is often ignored. Partners often get into arguments not because they disagree with each other, but because they are misunderstood. Not so much as to what they may have said, but misunderstood in terms of who they are, how they process information, how they react and what drives them. I would say that most heated arguments could be completely eradicated from your relationship if you each had a better understanding of each other’s personality. Oddly enough, the Wealth Dynamics Test is a great way to explore this.
There comes this point in our lives as entrepreneurs that we grow this insatiable need to always be on, to be connected and available. The problem isn’t that we are always ‘available’, it actually stems from allowing ourselves to be available. Checking our phones for a quick sec sets a terrible example for our family and those around us, especially if it’s during some inopportune moments (even to just post something on Instagram.) One more second, one minute, I need 5 minutes, 10 more minutes.... IT ADDS UP! And the people around you, like your kids, start to feel as though they are being ignored.
