Set Up and Orientation
Get google docs on your phone for your "Issues List", "Particulars" etc. and our shared coaching doc.
Determine that when you hit a bump you will get back on the horse. It is common to take 3 steps forward and 2 steps back. Don't panic. Just keep going. Victory isn't necessarily for the strongest, or the smartest, or even the best looking. It's for those that do not quit.
Embrace a "Wax on / Wax off" approach to couples success. Read more in Basics.
Lists you should have on your phone (Hint: Click on each item to see what it is)
Decide how much time you're going to put into homework every day and start working through it. (Is she worth it? Is he worth it? Are your children worth it?). Even 5 or 10 minutes a day can make a world of difference.
A Few things you can expect from your coach
a) You will want to talk about the "dot" (your issue). I will be bringing the conversation to the circle around the dot (the distrust, panic and war surrounding the issue).
b) You will be wanting to talk about 2 or more issues at once. I will be faithful in making sure we stay with one issue until it's complete and then go on to the next, which is one of the major keys to our success.
c) You will be wondering if it's possible to save your relationship. I will be telling you, based on years of experience, that it's not about whether your relationship can be saved. There's not even a question about that. It's about whether you're willing to keep the agreements you make, of your own free will, in our meetings.
