Season 2/Episode 10: Do as I Do
In All Seriousness
Compromising May be the Answer
In this week’s episode, Tony used an entire episode to try to convince Jill to get up earlier each day.
She put up a good fight, but in the end, she told Tony and listeners that she would try it for 21 days, the length it takes to form a habit. After that, she told Tony that he cannot say anything more to her about it.
And he agreed.
Jill and Tony have more suggestions about what to do when your partner says, “Do as I do.”
You can probably guess who gave which tip:
- Don’t view your partner’s suggestion to emulate them as an order
- Consider whether their suggestion is something that will help you
- If you say no, be truthful, but polite, about the reason why
Has your partner ever told you to try something different that they are already doing? How did you respond? Let us know in the comments section.
Keep telling us what you’re doing differently this year. We love hearing from you.
