Dear Keith and Maura,

How can I have a better relationship with my husband? We seem to be growing apart, with the stresses of life we just don't have any quality time anymore. He loves to play video games and I feel so left out. We don't do anything together...

During these seemingly tough economic times, we've been hearing people say things like, "Now's the time to be strong, have faith and stay focused." This is true, but aren't these the best qualities of a successful businessperson anyway? We've been thinking about this and we've decided that now is the...

In Search Of Intimacy

(0) Comments | Posted September 18, 2008 | 12:02 AM

Dear Keith and Maura,

I completely agree with and understand the concepts of knowing what I want and being able to satisfy myself. I worked hard to get myself there. Though, there is a point where this stops. Intimacy within a relationship cannot be achieved alone. My boyfriend for quite...

Dear Keith and Maura,

All of my past relationships have been untruthful and I was not respected in any way. I now have a man before me that says he would never hurt or disrespect me. I am ruining my chance for love by waiting for...

Workplace Romance - Should You Or Shouldn't You?

(2) Comments | Posted November 12, 2007 | 12:37 PM

Dear Keith and Maura,

Do you think it means anything if a guy you like at work happens to give you his cell phone number out of the blue, or if you ask that guy - joking around - if he can give you a ride home from work...

It's How You Play The Game

(2) Comments | Posted October 29, 2007 | 9:36 PM

Anyone who knows Keith knows he's a huge football fan. Maura, on the other hand, could go her entire life without watching a single football game and she'd be just fine. One Sunday while Keith was watching his team play, Maura said, "I don't get it. What's the appeal? All...

Who's Feeling You?

"I would feel just awful if I left anybody out."

"You really hurt my feelings when you said that."

"When I find my soul mate, I will feel so happy."

One of the most important things we teach about relationships is self-responsibility. Like many people, we spent...

What's Your Story?

(0) Comments | Posted September 12, 2007 | 10:58 PM

Before taking some much needed time off for the Labor Day holiday, we submitted our last blog post (Would You Rather Be Right Or Happy?) and, as usual, we were almost immediately provided with an opportunity to practice what we preach. The other day, while running an errand, we decided...

Would You Rather Be Right or Happy?

(21) Comments | Posted August 29, 2007 | 11:06 PM


This question was asked in one of the first self-improvement seminars we ever took, and it had quite a profound impact. It was mind-boggling to think about the amount of needless suffering we had inflicted upon ourselves in relationships, simply by being attached to our position. It must...

The C Word

(1) Comments | Posted August 11, 2007 | 7:26 PM

We've been dealing with the word "commitment" a lot lately in our coaching practice. Some of our clients avoid it like the plague, while others jump in head first, without stopping to consider the possible consequences. Which approach do we recommend?

Bring On The Boobies

Have you ever felt unappreciated because someone didn't notice something special you did? Or -- even worse -- your kind gesture backfires, and not only do they not appreciate it -- they are actually mad at you! This comes up frequently with our coaching clients, and we experience it with...
