Through socialising, sharing, service, and being empathic, we learn to take care of others and ourself.
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Social)
By emphasising the importance of self awareness before successful engagement with your partner, this model is a process of learning new habits to create personal and interpersonal effectiveness.
Often we find we live our lives narrowly focusing on work or home. The daily grind becomes our focus to the exclusion of others. For marriage, it is essential that we continually review and draw our attention to ensure an upward spiral of growth, change, and continuous improvement.
The importance of renewal in our lives can not be underestimated. Learning, growing and developing new capabilities and expanding on the old ones is the process through which continued success is made possible.
You don’t have to get it right the first time. This is part of life’s journey of learning and developing. You will get there if you are willing to invest the time and effort to developing new habits.
Tune in next week for Habit 7 – spiritual.

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.
