Do you and your partner in business or at home have the same arguments over and over? Do you wish they’d just pay attention at least once in a while? Why do you have to keep getting yelled at or keep yelling at them over the same things again and again? Why can’t they just understand you?

Well, you know what? They might be thinking the same thing about you. Why don’t you take steps to change that? Here’s how:

Set aside a time to really talk with your partner, your spouse, your significant other, your children, your parents, whoever is close to you. Ask the questions below that are appropriate:

*On a scale of 1 to 10, how is our relationship?*

How is our business relationship?
How is our sex relationship?
How is our parent/child relationship?
How is our working relationship?

Are the answers under 10? Then ask this question:

*What would it take to make it a 10?*

Keep the discussion flowing. Listen and participate. Don’t be satisfied with an 8 or under. If you settle for less than a 9, be prepared for some jolts along the way.

Ask weekly. Have fun with it. Get to know your partner, your spouse, your significant other, your children, your parents, or anyone who is close to you, all over again.

If you’re in a relationship, why not make the most of it? Life is meant to be learned about, lived, loved.
