Sex is more than just, well, sex.
As married couples, it’s easy for us to prioritize marketing, budgeting and attracting new clients while letting your marriage quietly drift out to sea with an occasional fresh wind of going for dinner only after a long week.
It seems as if the more successful we are within our business the more excited we are about keeping that high going.
This is not good. In fact, success as entrepreneurs brings with it many “gotchas” if we don’t get a grip.
Chasing the euphoric high we can all get from a great business meeting or serving another customer is a sure fire way to let your marriage go by the wayside.
2 REASONS GREAT ENTREPRENEURS MAKE POOR LOVERS:
- They never shut their creative minds off when it comes to business and so much of what they talk is about is business centered. Therefore, they don’t flirt and when they finally do it sounds like an obligation or canned speech.
- Often times the rush they get from doing business eventually seeks to replace the rush they should get from romance and intimacy with their spouse.
TWO WAYS GREAT ENTREPRENEURS MAKE GREAT LOVERS:
- They set up clearly defined borders around working time and spending time with their spouse. They prioritize by establishing a pre-planned stopping time in order to devote quality time and quality energy to the marriage.
- They invest in their spouse spiritually, emotionally and physically by giving no less energy and effort to meeting the needs their spouse.
Any of us can fall into this the trap of putting our ideas and businesses before our marriages.
All of us can prevent it or fix it by making the needs of our spouse a priority.
