Maxi Pads…

Have you ever purchased any of these for your wife?

I grew up in a large family, two older brothers and four sisters, where I was the youngest. So when I was of age, around 10, I was often sent to the store by my mother or my sisters. My mother typically wanted me to get eggs, milk, cereal or bread. My sisters sent me to the store for “PADS”. As a young boy, I had no idea what “PADS” were. My sisters would send me to the store with an old box of “PADS” that I could use as a benchmark. Now bear in mind I had no idea what these were used for..thus the funny looks as I stood in line to purchase them were puzzling.

Even once I realize what they were used for I didn’t immediately stop going to the store for my sisters. I simply asked the, bagger – as they snickered – to “Please Double or Triple bag these”. However, my sisters were immensely grateful that they had a brother that would put what little manhood – I was 10 – on the line to assist them in their time of need.

As a husband, I am often sent to the store. Now guys I’m sure you can relate or have been in this situation yourself; you are in line about to ring up the first item and you get a call from your wife and she says, “Can you get me some pads”. You begin to scream inside, “NNNNOOOOOOOO, not pads, anything but those”. You begin to think what if someone sees me in the “PAD AISLE”. This feeling of dread is felt by most men. But, I have a different perspective.

How does it make your wife feel when about you? My wife stated, “I really appreciate it when you do this for me, one I feel special and two, I know you are secure in your manhood when you buy them for me.” Guys, I can remember one day when I purchased some “PADS” the cashier made such a big deal about it. She told the other cashiers and the Store Manager (Female) standing within ear-shot, “I wish my husband would do this for me.” It’s the simple things within a marriage that make your wife feel special.

So go ahead, ask your wife if she needs any “PADS” and Go get em boys..

80/20 Rule – Too Much On Your Plate… September 20, 2007

Juggling Act…

So how many things do you have on plate today. Some times our lives are a juggling act and we do not know how to prioritze our lives. So in this blog I wanted to introduce a short principle that I’ve used numerous times in my professional life and have begun implementing in my personal life.

    PARETO PRINCIPLE

The Pareto principle (also known as the 80-20 rule, the law of the vital few and the principle of factor sparsity) states that, for many events, 80% of the effects comes from 20% of the causes. Business management thinker Joseph M. Juran suggested the principle and named it after Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed that 80% of income in Italy went to 20% of the population. It is a common rule of thumb in business; e.g., “80% of your sales comes from 20% of your clients.”

The original observation was in connection with income and wealth. Pareto noticed that 80% of Italy’s wealth was owned by 20% of the population. He then carried out surveys on a variety of other countries and found to his surprise that a similar distribution applied.

It also applies to a variety of more mundane matters: we wear our 20% most favoured clothes about 80% of the time, we spend 80% of the time with 20% of our acquaintances etc.

So if you have a list of ten (10) things to do the top two (2) should be your true focus. In accomplishing these, based on the rule, you inherently fulfill a good portion of the remaining eight (8). So try it and let me know how it works.

Bad news

Gerry and I have often been asked the following question, “Hey guys, is there every a good time to give your wife bad news?” In our experience, having had to disseminate bad news in our own marriages, we would say “THERE IS NEVER A GOOD TIME.”

For example, as an entrepreneur, your pay cycle is “Whenever your client’s cash flow is in order’, right or the sales cycle on a big deal takes longer than usual.

As a guy, you did something really stupid, like look at Porn on the family computer and your kids almost viewed some of the pictures. Or you had an affair with another woman.

Now comes the time when you have to tell your wife that your finances will be a little tight, or the dreaded, “Honey, I have to tell you something”. First, why do we say honey, as if it will soften the blow? Second, this statement immediately sends chills up your wife’s spine. It would do the same to you.

So what do we do, when we have to give our wife some bad news?

First let’s define – Bad News. Guys, hopefully you know your wife and her threshold to issues. The scale is from 1 to 10, with 10 being a great threshold for bad news and 1 being a low threshold. Please get a better understanding of this issue first.

Second, you have to realize that no matter how strong (emotionally) you think your wife is, she is not. Most women still have that little girl inside of them, that’s needs to be protected, that needs emotional security that longs for affirmation from a male figure. So, please understand that armor of strength from your wife is a façade. She is not the callous, insensitive, uncaring person you think she is. I know some of you are saying, “Steve, you’ve never met my wife.”

Steps 3 & 4 tomorrow stay tuned…

In Jail

Let me throw out some statistics related to men:

– 50-60% of married men engage in extramarital sex at some time or another during their relationship
– More than 27 million children-39% of all US children-now live apart from their father
– A child with a nonresident father is 54 percent more likely to be poorer than his or her father
– A study of 13,986 women in prison showed that more than half grew up without their father. Forty-two percent grew up in a single-mother household and sixteen percent lived with neither parent
-Being raised by a single mother raises the risk of teen pregnancy, marrying with less than a high school degree, and forming a marriage where both partners have less than a high school degree
– Compared to their peers living with both parents, children in single parent homes had:
– A 77% greater risk of being physically abused
– An 87% greater risk of being harmed by physical neglect
– A 165% greater risk of experiencing notable physical neglect
– A 74% greater risk of suffering from emotional neglect
– An 80% greater risk of suffering serious injury as a result of abuse
– Overall, a 120% greater risk of being endangered by some type of child abuse.
– 90% of all Crimes are committed by MEN
– 100% of all rapes are committed by MEN
– 95% of all burglaries are committed by MEN
– 91% of all crimes against the family are committed by MEN
– 94% of all DUI are committed by MEN

Amazing huh, what are you right to ensure you do not become one of these statistics.
