Would you like more support from your husband with your projects and goals? This week on the podcast, I share the principles that help Andrew and me effectively communicate and support each other in making priorities happen.
Before I sit down to plan with Andrew, I go through an entire planning session by myself. Then we sit down and map out the schedule together – who needs to be where, when, and taken by whom.
But we don’t stop there. I share my big 3 for the week that come directly from my vision, and he shares his priorities. Then we figure out how to make our most important tasks happen together.
As a couple, we are aiming for interdependence, not independence. Steven Covey explains that when you are in an interdependent relationship, 1+1=3. You can do more together than you can by yourself.
Instead of working in two separate domains, we get on the same page every week. We discuss our priorities and how we can best support one another in accomplishing them. Sometimes it is creating time for independent work, and other times, it is rolling up our sleeves to get something done together.
The important thing is that we keep an open mind and work collaboratively to figure out the best way to puzzle our week together.
