Do Better

November 8, 2010

in the generous life

Seth Godin is such an interesting blogger.  He’s a business-y type guy, but most of his themes are easy to apply to marriage.  His recent post – Do more vs. do better – really got me to thinkin’.  His basic premise is that workers are much more productive when they think “do better” rather than “do more” or “do faster.”

I would say the same of marriage.  You don’t have to do more or faster, just think about how you can improve what you are already doing.  If you already spend time talking, make it a priority to listen for things to share that makes your conversation more interesting.  If you are already doing the laundry, why not pray over your husband while you fold his clothes.  If you are already making love, why not tell him what feels good or relax a bit and move more.

I don’t believe the old statement, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” If that’s the case, then Cadillacs and Jaguars and Mercedes would never make a change. I’ve always looked for ways to make things better.  Vic Bubas
