Have you ever hired someone, and then puzzled over what you saw in him or her in the first place?
And then you fired them, and wondered what took you so long?
I hope you’re not thinking of your husband, wife, or partner! The truth is so obvious after the fact. How can you interrupt a failure cycle sooner or avoid the failure in the first place?
Here are the eight rules I use to move from failure to success in relationships and goals.
1. The Rule Of Correlation. When someone has annoying habits, don’t overlook them. How they communicate now is connected to how they’re going to communicate later. If they blow up over incidental details that’s how they’re going to be with any change no matter how small. OK I know you really need someone. Wait and find the right one. No desperate hires or relationships!
