For me great relationships are part of what makes life tick, so when I became a single man in my fifties the prospect of a new relationship terrified and fascinated me. I used a Relationship Vision to create a new, amazing marriage.
For me having a passionate, creative relationship is crucial to a full life. The problem, when I was not in one, came down to a single, crucial, issue; what was I looking for? This was a puzzle to me, there was so much choice out there. How do I make a choice that will work for years to come? How can I distinguish between all the amazing women out there?
I discovered the relationship vision, the answer to great relationships.
“A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.”
(Rosabeth Moss Kanter)
Watch the video to hear about my vision as I wrote it some years ago. I crafted it from the perspective that we were together and that this is how we are living. I found this positive, present, perspective very powerful.
“Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is simply passing the time. Action with Vision is making a positive difference.”

This was a man whose life had moved out of balance, and who ended up in a miserable, early death. This is an example of the issue of obesity in men.- October 16, 2016
