Today’s Topic: Accepting our similarities and differences

We’re continuing to go through the exercises in John Gottman’s new book, Eight Dates, in order to test our relationship and see how connected we are. This week, we are discussing the fundamental differences between how we approach work and life. We talk about how we are the same, how we are different, and how we can accommodate and accept the differences between us.

  • [03:11] Accepting how we are different
  • [04:11] Differences in neatness and organization
  • [07:35] Differences in punctuality

Hi, I’m Rob!

Hi, I’m Rob! It has been said “You are not what you have learned, but what you’ve overcome.”


I have overcome my share of obstacles in order to architect the life of my dreams and uncover the key to lasting, meaningful success. Growing up in Queens (literally on the wrong side of the tracks), my early years were tumultuous, marked by hardship and violence.
