Missions, purpose, goals. Andrew and Chuck were both pretty adamant about how our guys need our support when they go out and tackle said goals. But, um, what if you aren't exactly sure what that mission is? Even Andrew said, he's switched it up at times.
He's allowed, of course, to change it up. We are all allowed to do that with our focus of life. Sure the underlying element of his life is steady, but so now he's pumped about a soccer team instead of a business thing. All well and good, but, as with everything, it comes back to something we've chatted about here A LOT (yes, I capitalized it, bolded it and added italics because it deserves it): communication. It's all well and good if your man has a mission and he's laser-beam-focused on it, but if you don't know what it is, how can you go about being his number one supporter?
So, we need them to let us know, clue us in, give us a head's up on not only what he's challenged himself with but also how best to support him (give him extra time, listen to his ideas, offer your own or stay silent).
And now it is time for another generalization (we are full of those this week, eh?): men aren't the best communicators. Although, truth be told, we aren't either at times. Men and women definitely come to the Communication Table from different ends, carrying different chairs, but when we are at the table, we need to talk, really talk.
How do you know what your guy needs support with? Does he let you know? Do you have to guess?
