Last week I read an article about relationships.
In it, the researchers labeled couples with behaviors that enabled them to stay together for the long term as “masters.” Couples with behaviors that tore them apart were labeled as “disasters.”
I thought the alliteration was clever.
Plus, the concept of being really good at something or really bad, can be applied to so many things.
- Are you a master at parallel parking? Or a disaster?
- Are you a master at baking cookies? Or a disaster?
- Are you a master at your virtual gala? Or a disaster?
In truth, we tend to fall somewhere in between for most activities.
Do you profess to be a master at anything? Or a disaster?
I’m a master at auctions, but a disaster when cooking for dinner parties.
