Chapter 13 Getting Into A Man’s Head
-Men and women’s brains work differently
*Men tend to focus on one thing and shut everything else out
*Women, on the other hand, can have a million things going on at once and pay attention to all of them
-This can be a great asset at dinnertime when dealing with children, but a negative in the bedroom
*Men also tend to concentrate on the bottom line results of a situation and aren’t worried about the feelings and details going on
*Once a man is focused it can take awhile to switch focus to something else. A perfect example is when he comes home from work, it may take him a little while to “leave work” and “come home”
Chapter 14 What Every Wife Needs To Know About Her Husband
*Men often have a need to push themselves b/c their purpose in life isn’t as obvious as women’s
*The three factors of faith, work, and marriage are the keys of a man finding who he is
*this shows up in the need for most men to constantly be doing something
*a day off is not considered successful if all he does is relax
*men have the need to win at everything
*I definitely do this on trips: let’s go, go, go and get there as fast as we can!
So, to summarize, the three words that best describe what a man truly is: “identity, which relates to our deepest need; insecurity, which relates to a problem we’ll spend our entire lives trying to solve; and performance, which relates to our fundamental mindset.”
Chapter 15 What Every Husband Needs To Succeed
*Even more than love, a husband desires his wife’s respect
* “I am proud of you” means even more to him than “I love you”
*A husband needs to know that his wife is his biggest cheerleader
*A wife must support him in his work
*A husband desperately needs his wife’s support in public. One of the worst things you can do to a man is embarrass or shame him publicly.
*He also needs her support throughout the different stages of life (20s, 30s, etc.)
Chapter 16 What Else A Husband Needs to Succeed
*A husband desires to have fun and be friends with his wife
*A husband wants his wife to come with him and participate in his interests
-sports, fishing, etc.
*A man will often feel the need to dream out loud to his wife. A wise woman is patient with her husband even if he sounds nuts
-he is often just seeking affirmation, so give him some affirmation!
*Wives: make sure your husbands know that he satisfies you in the bedroom. Deep down, that is ultimately what he wants to know
