082 – Shut Yer Tater Trap (and you might learn something)

082 – Shut Yer Tater Trap (and you might learn something)

Today’s a day that started with Tiff and I heading to the gym on our Friday morning.

Friday has always been “date day” but we’re mixing it up a little. Our Lover Palooza begins tonight at 6pm and runs through the entire weekend. 

I normally do the business part of our coaching business (no clients) mostly on Wednesday and Saturdays but we’re getting a little crazy and changing things up (nothing like a little variety in life), so here I sit typing away in a new Starbucks. 

God, I love Starbucks!

People quietly chatting nearby.

MacBooks everywhere you look. Nothing quite like Apple products to make your life brighter.

The sound of Ice cubes falling into a cup, espressos being made, “what are you doing this weekend,” coming out of the mouth of the sweetest human ever from behind the counter.

I sit here on a comfy bench seat, sipping on my grande iced americano, and feeling totally impressed with how fast the internet speed is. Nice!

Wait a second, I just realize I left my cell phone out in the car. Never a good idea.

The guy next to me looks trustworthy, I’m going to ask him to keep an eye on my computer for me while I grab my phone.

Ok, I’m back.

Nice people are so nice. It feels good to trust another person, even if you don’t know them. 

Yesterday we got up, went to the gym, came home and each made our own breakfast (because we eat different things sometimes), recorded our podcast, washed our “stink” off and then went to work and coached the world’s best clients. 

The podcast is about being a good listener, because being a good listener is the single greatest skill a person can have (right after being a good lover ?).

Have you ever had a time when you thought you knew what someone was going to say and jumped in to finish their sentence and you were 100% off base and felt like a fool? I have. Not my favorite thing.

I’ve been working on my listening skills and I would like to publicly thank the Gottman’s for writing the book, “The Man’s Guide to Women.” 

This book has quite literally made my listening and therefore my relationship, even better.  Our intimacy has jumped by at least half again, and that’s a big deal to me because I love our love and the more we can both feel that for-and-from each other, the better life feels all the way around.

Hence episode 082 was birthed and it was a quick and enjoyable delivery. 😉

We talked about good listening and good questions to ask to spark more connective conversation and we also talked about the things NOT to say when being a good listener.

Have you had the experience of sharing your frustration over something you’re going through in life and the person you’re talking to says, “I’m sure they didn’t mean it…” How did that make you feel? Like your feelings just don’t matter? 

Listening is an art, and requires patience and lots of practice.

Now I’ve gotta run and finish editing our podcast and adding the music to it so you have it in your inbox bright and early Sunday morning.

Have a wonderful, beautiful and delicious day.

058 – Relationship Show & Tell

058 – Relationship Show & Tell

“Show me yours and I’ll show you mine….”

Did you love show-and-tell days in grade school? You’d bring one of your favorite things to school with you, all wrapped up in a bag so no one would see what it was.  When you finally got to pull it out and share it with the whole class… oh the thrill of it!

Today is “Relationship Show & Tell” day.

Our relationship is freaking awesome! People want what we have. And with all the good, comes some bad. So it goes.

We’d be leading you astray if we didn’t allow you to peek into both sides of the equation–the smiles AND the swearing. ?

Each of us came up with 7 questions to ask the other, without knowing what they were. Our answers are completely off-the-cuff and unrehearsed. The reason we did this was to give you some powerful insight into the DIFFERENCES between the masculine and the feminine.

It take a balance between the masculine and the feminine in every love relationship to enjoy hot passion and intimacy.  We know this can be a touchy subject. We are NOT putting anyone into a box, in fact we’re ripping the box to shreds so that you get a much clearer picture of what’s possible.

This episode starts out with a bang because earlier this morning before recording it, we got into a massive “retrograde” blow out (and it wasn’t pretty) and it came up as a topic of conversation LIVE on the air while recording this show. 

Being life and relationship coaches we KNOW what goes on behind closed doors (including our own) and we make it very clear to you what “typical” is so you don’t feel like you’re the only one that has some serious blowouts. And we help you get a good grip on what the masculine/feminine dance looks like.
