Emphasising the importance of self awareness before successful engagement with your partner, the model is a process of learning new habits to create personal and interpersonal effectiveness.
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Intellectual)
The importance of renewal in our lives can not be underestimated. Through reading, visualising, planning and writing we can continually learn, grow and develop new capabilities and expanding on the old ones is the process through which continued success is made possible.
Through applying the 7 habits in our relationships and through continued commitment and loyalty, we will ensure a sharpened saw, one ready to tackle the ups and downs of our marriage. Through consistent and continued refinement of the four areas and through continued focus on your mission statement, your focus will be on the important aspects, those that will define you as a highly effective couple.
Tune in next week for more on Habit 7.

The Couple Checkup generates deep and productive conversations that couples would not otherwise have about their relationship. These conversations restore insight and understanding about one another. The Couple Checkup can help to revive a relationship and increase intimacy.
The Couple Checkup is an online couple assessment based on the PREPARE/ENRICH couple inventories. The Checkup assessment and Checkup report are designed to go directly to couples at any stage of their relationship (dating, engaged or married). The online system allows for dynamic customization of the assessment to each couple based on how the couple answers background questions. The goal is for the Couple Checkup to reach a more diverse group of couples, to empower couples to deal with issues on their own and to emphasize prevention over remediation.
