Do you find that your mind wanders like this chart when you’re trying to work? A quick check to Facebook can lead to a 45-minute break! This chart has some great suggestions to manage our work so we can be productive without getting sidetracked. My favorite is working in 50 minutes bursts then taking a short break! What’s yours?

This is a great response when people ask what you do to get something done. To be successful in anything we do, we have to be willing to do whatever it takes to get there. Nothing worth having comes easy.

The 9 Most Obnoxious Things You Can Say To Your Husband

A few weeks ago, I shared the most obnoxious things you could say to your wife. Here is the other side - find out what myself and some other therapists had to share about the things men hate to hear from their wives.

See anything that's missing? What's the worst thing you've heard said?

Facing a Midlife Crisis Divorce

If you're contemplating a midlife crisis divorce, pause. Regardless of whether you're the person making the choice to end it or the one that's being forced upon, take a couple of minutes to read this article and see if you can see yourself somewhere in it.

Does a midlife crisis mean divorce? It's certainly easy to think so. After all, when your partner checks out, often moves out, and shows no interest in coming back, what else are you supposed to think?

Click the article below and find out why even though a midlife crisis and divorce often go together, they don't have to.

How Couples Can Talk Money Without a Blowup

Disagreements are a part of every relationship — especially financial ones. In fact, discussions about money are among the most common communication struggles for couples, as they can easily unravel into money fights. Learning how to properly navigate these discussions is an important component of any healthy relationship.

Because money is such a divisive subject, you must remember first and foremost that you’re on the same team as your partner when approaching a money discussion. If you’re in a committed relationship, you shouldn’t think of money as “my money” and “your money,” but rather “our money.” View any disagreements with the partnership in mind.

Click the article below to learn how to talk about money without a blowup.

6 Ways to Bring Fireworks Back Into Your Relationship

The beginning of a relationship can be full of butterflies in our stomachs and fireworks in the sky. We experience first kisses, fun new dates and morning text messages that make our hearts sing.

As we come to know our partner more, our love grows and the bond deepens, but the butterfly feelings and the colorful fireworks often fade away. If we aren’t careful, we can drift apart and possibly become another split couple.

Click the article below and learn 6 things to keep the fireworks alive in your relationship.

Is this true for you, too? If so, either add a memo app to your phone or carry a paper and pen with you so you can write things down. It’s such a simple thing, but it can really impact how some things in our life can work!

Sometimes we worry so much about what others think of us! But the truth is, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks of us – we only have to like ourselves.

It’s really important to not make a child feel guilty for loving their other parent – no matter how crappy they may be. That will only make your kid feel bad about him- or herself. Put your child’s feelings first, and keep yours to yourself.

We’re so busy comparing how our lives measure up to someone else’s or some ideal we have stuck in our heads, that we don’t realize if we just concentrated more on what we’ve already got, our grass could probably be greener than those we’re comparing ourselves to.

Specialist in Counseling Men and the women who love them
Introduction

I want to have conversations on Google+ that make me think, learn, and laugh. If you do too, then please engage with me.

Men, Women, Relationships, Love and Health . . . aren't these topics we all have in common . . . ones we all need to understand better . . . things we all could learn more about from each other??? So join the conversation and think, learn, and laugh along with us.

My Promise To You: Five days a week on Google+ I'll start a conversation about one of the above topics and I guarantee you'll have an opinion about it! You may like it, hate it, think I'm crazy or an idiot, possibly even brilliant, but I guarantee you'll have something to say about it.

Want to Connect on Google+? This page is one of the best places to do it. As one of the Top 50 Profiles on Google+ for engagement, my posts get +1, commented on, and shared . . . a lot (source: +CircleCount). Join in and get connected. If you want to get your stream rockin' and rollin', try sharing some of these posts and ask your followers to comment.

I get asked this a lot - "so what makes you such an expert?"
