Assume Love (TM): How to have a happier marriage without waiting for your spouse to change (daisy logo)

Is Yours a Great Marriage?

Here's a great quote from Jim Collins' book Good to Great that applies even more to marriages than to the businesses he writes about:

"Get involved in something that you care so much about that you want to make it the greatest it can possibly be, not because of what you will get, but just because it can be done."

Most of us start out this way, vowing to keep at it through richer or poorer, in sickness or in health, forsaking all others. We lose our way when we pay attention to what we are getting at this point in our shared history.

What's your picture of greatness for your marriage?
