5 minutes on Marriage and Relationships

Here I am with my cool and new car video mount.

And today, I’m spending 5 minutes talking about marriage and relationships. I have been thinking about this all night. Marriage takes a lot of work  from both people. This is especially true in the auto industry. Even more so than other areas of business.

With the time and energy demand that is put out in the car business, it seems to make those fulfilling personal relationships even more tough to work through sometimes. I am quite fortunate to have a wife that will work on our relationship just as hard as I do.

Marriage and really most personal relationships are a full time, all out, 100% commitment to each other. You cannot give 100% in other areas of your life – business, work, entrepreneurship, to your employees for example – and then give less than that in a marriage to your partner.

You have to strive to give your spouse the very best of yourself, not what’s left over after you have given your best to everyone else.
