Ensure Shared Values

No partnership can work without shared values.   One of the simplest ways to figure this out is to first find out what the other person’s top priorities are.    If the other person had to honestly stack rank those priorities, what would that ranking look like?

For example my top 3 priorities are:

  1.  Family
  2.  Time
  3.  Health

If you ask your partner, what would they say?   Would they be matched or would you see other things in the top 3 like money, fame, friendships, career, etc?   Find me a partner with priorities that aren’t shared, and I’ll show you a partnership that will find conflict.

Figure it out, it’s worth it.
