Assignment: The Relationship Hack

Danica Joan Dockery February 10, 2022

After watching Eli Finkel’s TED Talk “The Marriage Hack,” answer the following questions on your Course Assignment Sheet. Remember that the goal of this exercise is to take an example of a conflict you persistently had with your co-parent and practice how you could work on better communication with them in the future by seeing it from their perspective.

The Conflict is: __________________________________________________________________________________________________

(pick something that was persistent from your relationship that didn’t seem to get resolved.)

When facing a conflict consider the following three questions.

  1. The perspective of a neutral third party who wants the best for everyone. What would they say?

2. What obstacles will you confront when trying to adopt this perspective?

3. How can you surmount these obstacles?
