Design Yourself 56: Celebrating 10 Years of Marriage

Making a commitment can be daunting. Sometimes we get swept up in all the research we can do, even for some of our everyday decisions. Is this really THE best restaurant we could eat at on vacation? Is this THE movie we want to see? So when it comes to a longterm commitment, the pressure often rises. Is this really THE right job? THE right person? THE THING?! Host Sharon agrees with Sheryl Sandberg and Warren Buffet: Picking a life partner is one of the most important decisions we make in our lives. And this week she is delighted to be inviting her partner-in-crime (psst, hubby!) on the show to celebrate 10 years of being married. This episode is great for anyone who is curious about what it takes to sustain commitment to any one person (or thing!) while allowing for change and growth to still happen. Bonus: If you listen through to the end, you can meet Sharon and Colin’s 4 year old daughter who opted to make a surprise appearance on the show.

 “I truly believe that the single most important career decision that a woman makes is whether she will have a life partner and who that partner is.” – Sheryl Sandberg
