I’m so excited to share this little idea I have with you, I’m sure its not new but I can’t think of anywhere I’ve heard it specifically so I’ll take credit for it. 😉 But first I want to remind you about the giveaway I’ve got going on. Check it out for a simple way to keep yourself safe while running/biking/climbing or any other activity, just wear a Road Id.
OK back to our regularly scheduled program.
Mac and I have been noticing that many of our communication frustrations are from a lack of communication. We are around each other alot and talk a fair amount but not about those silly little things like budget, schedule, goals and so on. You know just silly things right? Humm guess not. Lately we have made a specific effort to talk about money more. So we both know where we are at and there aren’t any assumptions being made. Its helped our budget out quite a bit and I can’t help but think the same would work in other parts of our live.
So what if we took a specific 5 minutes each day to talk about ‘the important things.’ Review your schedule for the next day if anything is out of the ordinary. Talk about where you stand with your budget, any big $$ things coming up (wanting to pay off a bill or a large bill coming.) Talk about what you hope to do this week, or next week so you can check in with each other. Just spend 5 min talking to each other, I bet it turns in to more.
