The 2 Per-Specht-ives Podcast echoes The Rock by telling everyone to “Know your role!” Hosts David and Joshua Specht break down how we all have various roles to play across our lives and the needs within the most important ones.
Your generational lesson: We all have a role to play, and those roles are varied across our lives. Even if you only have one role, you need to break it down as you transition from work to church to your private life.
Your Gen. X Advice: When you know what your role is every day, you’re not competing to compare with one another. Marriage is not a competition, your wife should be on your team.
Your Gen. Z Advice: If your current role isn’t moving that business forward, maybe it’s time to change the role or establish what your role can be.
The two most important areas to know your roles are work and marriage.
In business, no matter what business you’re in, you have to figure out what role you play. If your current role isn’t moving that business forward, maybe it’s time to change the role or establish what your role can be.
People are going to look to whoever is above them. So, leaders need to know what their role is and embrace it. As a leader, you have to work twice as hard to dispel the belief that the person in charge “doesn’t do anything”.
In relationships, communicate what you think your role is and don’t assume your partner knows what his/her role is coming into the relationship. And, roles change and evolve throughout marriage, which makes communication even more crucial.
When you know what your role is every day, you’re not competing to compare what you did. Marriage is not a competition, your wife should be a part of your team.
It’s a different world for couples today than it was for Generation X. Grace needs to be given for younger couples because their early years of parenting are not our early years of parenting. You can advise, but not direct.
