There were some "jewels" of wisdom among the 12 Vistage members in attendance today on values, philosophies, and dreams. My favorite was "Happy Wife, Happy Life". I've always said to Susan, "When you are happy, I am happy" and it is a fact. It sounds one sided but the facts are each partner should say the same. For you females out there "Happy Man, Happy Life Span".
The joy of a compatible partner is on the path to peace and contentment. And I discovered the joy in a family starts with paying attention first to the spousal relationship. If that is working the family will work just fine.
Happy Family, Happy Longevity :)
