Ever try to pound in a nail with a screwdriver? Ever try to use a pocketknife to drill a hole?
Too often, we guys reach for the closet tool—but not the right tool for the project. It seems like a good idea at first. But then the nail refuses to budge or the blade of the pocketknife breaks off. That’s when we open our tool box to look for the right tool.
We treat relationships the same way—especially with the women in our lives. The problem is we reach for the tools that work well for us in our work world, but find they are often disastrous in our relationships.
