OK, so we are having an argument and one of us is pretty amped up about it and we go, “Wow! Is this really for real? You feel this intense about this?” Yeah, and in trying to get some objectivity we will pull out this simple Top 10 list that helps us rank the intensity of our feelings. Yeah, we call it the conflict card. We’ve used this for years. We’ve given it out at seminars. It really is like a little list. Number One says, “I’m not enthusiastic, but it’s no big deal to me.” You go down the list clear to Number Ten, which says, “Over my dead body!” And it’s just so helpful because it really does help you to pick and choose your battles wisely.
