A One-Track Mind May Be Key To Solving Disagreements

Tune Up Tuesday!  In addition to hosting mornings on B105.7. I work in the afternoon as a licensed therapist and on Tuesday mornings I share a nugget you may be able to use to “tune up” your relationship.

Today, how a one-track mind can help you solve disagreements.  It’s really helpful to focus on one thing at a time when trying to solve issues in your relationship.  When you jump from money, to parenting, to your in-laws, to how he loads the dishwasher… you’re not going to get to the heart of any of the issues and you both will likely feel unsatisfied and unresolved.

Instead, I have couples I work with focus on one issue at a time and I invite them to share about it until they don’t have anything else to say about it.  Then we work toward specific, measurably solutions.  If you try to focus on too many things at once, you’ll never get there.’
