Compromise Or Clash

When my husband and I first moved in together I was shocked at his atrocious taste. No – we’re not talking the overly large collection of heavy metal inspired t-shirts here (I would have been unable to get him to budge on them) I’m talking about the fact that he liked CRUNCHY peanut butter?!

Over the past 6 years we’ve grown into the experience of living together. I now eat the crunchy peanut butter and he’s switched to Colgate toothpaste. We’ve compromised and combined rather than clashed for the most part and it’s made our living experience that much more cohesive.

It’s the same experience you’ll find when you go into a business partnership or a team based work environment. Clinging to your own way like it’s gospel doesn’t do anyone any favours. And have you tried the crunchy peanut butter (it’s actually ridiculously good!)
