What's Your Goal?
This question is at the heart of the Ashley and Nathan's marriage.
Two years ago they realized they were headed down a path with their life that included a nice house, fancy cars, a great salary, stressful 9-5 workdays, and a whole lot of other things that sound a lot like the lives of a huge chunk of the world.
They realized that what they really wanted was a life of adventure, travel, and memory-making together as a family.
But was a life like that possible? What would people think? How could they make it happen?
In this episode, they'll tell you all about how they live their goals every single day.
The phrase, "What's your goal?" has developed an even meaning in the Logsdon's marriage.
One night in the middle of some normal marriage conflict, Nathan looked at Ashley and said, "What's your goal right now?"
It dawned on her that what she really wanted was to be right. Or to be in control. Or to make Nathan wrong.
It shocked her to really be honest about her intentions.
When I heard them tell this story, I was shocked as well. I realized that when I have conflict in my marriage, my goals are almost always selfish. I either want to be right, or I want to win an argument.
Admitting you're wrong is never fun.
But when you focus on your goal - in my case it's growth, or partnership, or closeness - you'll find that your conflicts fizzle faster than a birthday candle dropped in a bucket of water.
I hope you enjoy this week's episode, and I REALLY hope you check out the rest of this interview (along with a TON more awesome stuff) over at The 1% Club.
