“Where Do I Focus?”http://savethemarriage.com/stmblog/wp-content/themes/corpus/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg 150 150 Lee H. Baucom, Ph.D. Lee H. Baucom, Ph.D. http://0.gravatar.com/avatar/669b7e375d93f77521ddaba08adb8063?s=96&d=blank&r=pg
Whenever I am alone on a long drive, I try to answer all the calls I can. This past weekend gave me another opportunity. I delivered my son to college and had an 8 hour drive home.
I answered a call as I was leaving the mountains. The woman on the call told me she had my System. But in the midst of the crisis, she needed some shortcut. She wanted a simple place to focus.
First, I got her to promise me she would read the whole System and apply ALL of it. She promised she was looking for real guidance. Not just a trick or easy answer.
I told her there are 2 places of focus, as far as I was concerned. If I boiled it all down, this gave her 2 “handles” to hold onto as she put her plan together and moved forward.
Sometimes, when you are under pressure, some pretty good things come out of it. My 2 words of focus for her? “Respect” and “Connect.” It was good enough that I wanted to share this with you.
Listen to the podcast below to learn what I mean (even if you don’t feel respect and aren’t feeling connected). And how to get started!
