Consumerism in the family
Our consumerism mindset, the principle of cost/benefit analysis, and the idea of ROI has permeated our culture so much that it not only owns our businesses, our hobbies, our workshops, and our kitchens, but it has crept in and commandeered our relationships... our marriages.
When relationships are broken, you don't throw them away, you fix them.
When the ROI is too low, it doesn't mean get out, it means invest more heavily.
When the cost seems to outweigh the benefit, don't think about how shareholders would feel, think about the ONE that shares your soul.
