Eating Pizza Omelettes Could Improve Your Marriage Like It Has Mine

Have You Ever Eaten a Pizza Omelette?

The way you feel about that question may determine how successful your marriage is. 

Do you feel  "disgust"  or  "curiosity" ?

One of the greatest gifts I've been blessed with is the ability to take two seemingly unrelated things and combine them into a Beautiful Masterpiece. 

Some of my concoctions gross people out.

I must admit, the spaghetti omelette wasn't my best work. But the brisket omelette and the pizza omelette are two of my favorites!

I'm not sure where my curiosity to making up these "weird" collaborations originated, but I'm grateful I have that interest and curiosity.  

Some people are so turned off by things that don't seem to "fit" with each other they miss out on tremendous opportunities to create beautiful masterpieces.

Don't be one of those people.

One of the best collaborations I ever orchestrated is when I applied the questions and principles I learned in a few business trainings to my marriage.

I took questions from Jay Papasan and Dean Jackson along with some training from Hal Elrod and Jon Berghoff.  I challenged myself to be a Husband On Purpose and with the help of my wife, I dramatically shifted my marriage up to a level I didn’t know existed...

in less than 30 days.

What if I thought to myself, "Oh no! I can't mix business (pizza) and marriage (eggs)!!" ?

How we do anything is how we do everything.

And because I'm not afraid to throw some pepperoni and delicious mozzarella in the skillet with some eggs, I wasn't afraid to take some business training and apply it to my marriage.

If you're not afraid of mixing food that's "not supposed to go together" (and even if you are), maybe you're open to applying some proven business strategies to improve your marriage.

I shared what I was doing with some friends and a few of them applied what we discussed and saw immediate results.

They encouraged me to put everything together in a book. I had other books planned (and even written), but Husband On Purpose revealed itself as the priority.

If you're open to improving your marriage by taking responsibility, loving your wife on purpose, and being held accountable, you're in the right place.

Starting tomorrow (Friday September 25), you can get a copy of the book and SOMEONE ELSE IS PAYING FOR IT. For two days (Friday & Saturday), an anonymous donor who believes in the mission of Husband On Purpose has decided to purchase a copy for you. If you already have your copy, share this deal with a friend. 

It won't cost you a dime.

So when you visit http://HusbandOnPurpose.com/amazon  on Friday and Saturday you'll see the book for $0.00

So really you don't have to eat pizza omelettes to improve your marriage. But being open to things that don't seem to go together, could help you drastically improve your marriage.

I look forward to sending you your copy of the book so you can discover exactly how. If you'd like to be notified as soon as the price drops to $0.00 click here and I'll send you an email when the price drops.

The stench of melting plastic stung my nostrils as I confusingly thought to myself, “What is burning?”

I followed the scent to the kitchen, then into the dishwasher, and realized “Oh shoot! My mom was right.” 

My mom always said to put the plastic on the top rack. I don’t remember if she ever told me why, but that day I found out why. And since that day I’ve been putting the plastic on the top, where it should go. Where it’s supposed to go.

When I got married, somehow the plastics started appearing on the bottom again…

In a recent Wall Street Journal article* , Bosch said 40% of Americans fight about loading the dishwasher. Jennifer and I were in that 40%.

I don’t know if we ever really “fought” over loading the dishwasher, but we definitely have had some silly disagreements and unnecessary arguments over simple stuff, including the dishes.

<Start Sarcasm> Obviously the plastics are supposed to go on the top rack and the plates are supposed to face to the right <End Sarcasm>, but what fool of a man let’s something like that cause friction in his marriage? 

Unfortunately, me. But thank God I don’t anymore ☺

One day I decided there were certain ways and things I wanted my wife to feel when she thought about me. I also wanted to feel a certain way when I thought about her.

I didn’t want someone to mention my name and the thing that comes to Jennifer's mind is “He fusses about how I load the dishes!” and I didn’t want someone to mention her name and what comes to my mind is “She puts the plastics on the bottom!”.

The truth is that’s what happens though. What we focus on expands and how we make someone feel becomes who we are to them.

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou

Being purposeful about how you make your wife feel about you is a part of being a Husband On Purpose. It’s the first step to D.I.S.A.R.M. B.S. Mediocrity from your marriage. It’s simple in it’s application, yet profound in it’s impact. Ask me how I know ☺

I am grateful that Jennifer and I no longer have silly disagreements about dishes... or laundry. I count that as a victory and every victory, no matter how small it may seem, (it's not small) is celebrated in our home.

Of course we still have our challenges. Even after we high-fived (celebrated) about no longer being in the 40% of “dishwasher fighters”, we had a disagreement about something else not too long after. 

Fortunately, being a Husband On Purpose is not about stopping every disagreement before it happens as much as it is about growing with your wife through disagreements when they do happen.

And yes technically, in some dishwashers, there is a “better” way to load the dishes. But truthfully, your marriage, and the way you and your wife feel about each other, is more important.

Seemingly small problems can slowly fade into much larger problems when we’re not Purposeful about solving them.

I am fortunate to have a few friends who help hold me accountable to being Purposeful about solving problems before they blow up. They help me. I help them. 

And if you’re up to it, we’ll help you. 

Some of what we do is documented in my new book, Husband On Purpose and right now you can get a copy for $0.99 before the price is goes up in a few days. Click this link  http://HusbandOnPurpose.com/amazon , download the book, read it, (it's quick), implement what you discover, read it again, implement, read, implement, repeat as long as you need to ☺ http://HusbandOnPurpose.com/amazon

It's probably been about five years since a friend sent me a tweet about Marriage Works! Inc. and I've been a fan ever since. They were the first people on social media that I knew that were purposefully helping people be pro-active about their marriages. There were others out there I think, I just wasn't familiar with any of them.

Recently I had a chance to get on the phone with Kevin Bullard, the President of MW! and have a conversation about what it means to him to be a Husband On Purpose. In this conversation Kevin talks about

  • The Question Husbands Don't Ask, That Wives Wish They Would
  • 2 Reasons We Don't Ask The Question and How We Can and Why We Should Start Asking It
  • His Biggest Challenge with Being a Husband On Purpose
  • "The Sprinkler Effect' Trap That Working Husbands Can Easily Fall Into and Why It Can Ruin a Marriage
  • 3 Ways to Avoid "The Sprinkler Effect" including One I Have Been Guilty of Being Afraid to Use in the Past
  • How to Begin Building a Network Outside of Your Marriage That Benefits Your Marriage
  • A Lot of Men's Biggest Fear and How Their Wives Either Feed It or Starve It to Death
  • And the Resources Kevin Uses to Help Him Stay on Track of Being a Husband On Purpose Including One That Encourages "Cheating"
I am fortunate that I am able to call Kevin Bullard a friend now. It's friends like him that help ease some of the pressure we can put on ourselves as husbands. I hope that his wisdom is as beneficial to you as it is to me.
