LEARN FROM OTHERS

I thought of you when I read this quote from “The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun” by Gretchen Rubin –

“In addition to ignoring some expert advice, I also sought the advice of non-experts. One night, when my book group didn’t have much to say about the book we’d picked, I asked for my friends’suggestions about marriage. “You should both go to bed at the same time,”said one friend. “No matter what, something good will come of it. You’ll get more sleep or have sex or have a conversation.”“Before I got married, my boss told me that the secret to a strong marriage is to leave at least three things unsaid each day.”“My husband and I never criticize each other for more than one thing at a time.”“My Quaker grandparents, who were married seventy-two years, said that each married couple should have an outdoor game, like tennis or golf, and an indoor game, like Scrabble or gin, that they play together.”When I got home, I told Jamie that rule, and the next day he brought home a backgammon set.”
