Can You Be Half Married?

6 replies
Hey guys, I was on a skills call about a week ago, and learned the most amazing lesson. Very simple, yet also very amazing. It was about being "ALL IN"
Ask yourself a couple of questions: can you be half married? can you read half a book? if you only put your toe in the pool are you swimming? Well of coarse the answer to all of these is NO!!
Well now ask yourself can you be half a network markter? NO!!
Ok that was simple, but now sit back and do some serious self analysis. Are you giving your business all you can? Every ounce of energy you can find?
If you answered those last two questions Yes, then congrats! You will do well. But if the answer was no, you need to look in the mirror to see how you can do better.

    I think you need balance. If you give "every ounce of energy" to IM you're neglecting other areas of your life. That's not to say you shouldn't work hard, especially if you're just starting out, but everyone needs time for rest, relaxation, recreation, family, and other interests, otherwise you'll burn out. You have to step back regularly to evaluate where you are from a different perspective other than from in the IM trenches, otherwise all you see is the dirt in front of you.

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

    Try this. Pick a spot across the room. Walk half way there. Then walk half way again, and again, and again. As long as you keep going only half way each time you will never get to your goal. Or as I was told when I was a kid, " Don't be a half-a$$ed half-wit who does every thing half-way.

    I think randomly getting married when you can't see strait while in Vegas counts as half a's not like you're actually going to stay married.

    Marriage is both real in the sense that you are in it and symbolic on such a deep level; I think that it is much better not to marry unless the person is necessary for you to complete your personal vision. In some ways the symbolism is more meaningful than what you experience from day to day.

    That was a long winded way of saying no.
