Very goal oriented book on making relationships work better
on June 18, 2004
Let me just say - I loved this book, and have loaned it to some friend who've been very impessed as well. I'm shocked it only has one review so far, and so was inspired to write another.
It's very pragmatic, action-oriented, and goal oriented. I actually took notes on it. Here's a summary of my notes(although you'll definately want the get the book, if just for the examples and short stories alone):
Instead of thinking of things he shouldn't do, think of what he should do.
Your goals should be specific and action oriented, like "hold hands in movies".
Break your goals into mini-goals
If a particular stragety doesn't work, don't do it! Keep your eyes on the cheese.
Do something different strategies:
- do something unexpected
- do a 180
- act as if...
- "easier done than said", i.e. take action
