The key to getting to do whatever you want is to outwork your wife… or at least try.
Clean the house, bathe the kids, do the dishes and the floors… then go play video games and see if she says anything. I have discovered this great power recently and I want to share it with you. It’s not easy to do because it actually feels at first like you’ll never get another free moment again in your life… but I believe that very feeling is what most of our wives feel every moment. Once they know we feel it too we become unified. The goal isn’t to equalize the work… but to be willing to do even more. So quit keeping score… and you will find that there is more time for the things you love to do than you ever thought possible. Guilt-free time… which is precious and rare.
Do you like bullet lists? I do:
- Become completely selfless.
- Set a goal to outwork your spouse.
- Commit at least three days to this goal before cashing in.
- Make it a part of your daily schedule… not just a one time thing.
- Game on!
You’ll also find other benefits… like a cleaner home, a calmer wife, happier kids, more enjoyment of your free time. The list goes on. Try it today!
