My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who truly has a fascinating story that has lead him to being massage therapist by profession, and the founder of Relationship Minimalism, a relationship philosophy designed to answer one question.
Is it possible for men to apply the 80/20 principle to create love, connection, stability, and sexual passion in a long term relationship with their wife or girlfriend?
Well if you have listened to more than a couple of episode of Join Up Dots you will have have heard me talk often by love of Paretos Principle, but I have never thought of it being applied to people too.
And when you see the amount of seemingly unconnected dots that have occured in his life then you can see that I just had to have him on the show
As he says in his own words
From the age of 5-10 I grew up in Venezuela, Mexico and Indonesia. When we got back I couldn't fit into Canadian culture and ended up homeschooling myself to finish high school.
I love this feeling of "Hey lets go and do this, as it seems a good idea" as that is how we find the thing that lights us up inside.
Not by waiting for the passion to magically appear around you like some people suggest.
Get out there, do things, talk to people, and be aware of what is on offer, which is exactly what today's guest did and continues to do today.
So when did the idea of using the 80/20 in the environment of relationships first occur to him?
And was it a "Wow, I have just discovered something that can change lives" or more "Oh, i see what I have been doing over the last few months....better put a name to it?"
And does he think he has now found his life work, or is this just the start of the journey that was waiting for him?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mark Stefanishyn
