This week, we’re telling the story of an idea that Sara got from another podcast—going TV free for a week, instead of defaulting to turning on the TV after dinner like we usually do.
Bud didn’t quite jump on board. It turned into a real life example of negotiating as a couple.
In this episode, we talk about:
- Why Sara was scared to ask Bud to try a few days TV-free
- Bud’s counter-offer to the idea of no TV, instead of just saying no
- How Bud recommends negotiating within your relationship
The next time your partner suggests something new, don’t automatically pivot to the “no.” Consider a counter-offer toward your preferred solution.
