The brilliance of your ideas might not be recognized right away, but that shouldn’t prevent you from sharing them with people. If they respond to your proposals with silence or blank stares, it’s just because they don’t understand what you’re saying, not because they think you’re wrong. There will be enough collaborative energy to encourage them to give you the benefit of the doubt, which is all you need right now.
Whatever you’re excited about is contagious now. The right people will love hearing about it, witnessing your enthusiasm, and sharing it with you. If you’re feeling it, don’t hold back!
Admit it. Sometimes you get a little bit lazy about doing some of the things your partner asks you to do. If it’s important to them, you’re going to have to be a bit more disciplined. You can’t just do things that please you!
Go in with your eyes open. Shopping for bargains is like being thrown into a whole new culture. Don’t bring your personal issues along in your handbag.
