My wife is one of those brilliant people that have generally amazing ideas for improving things -- but we are on opposite pages when it comes to implementing the vision. I'm usually trying to decide what we're actually changing, if the project is worth doing, and how to implement the possible changes. Meanwhile, my wife has purchased the paint, the wood, decorations, and torn down existing structures.
Of course the projects almost always turn out brilliantly (with a few tweaks from me once I catch up) -- but there is often some pain in getting us on the same page. My ponderings for the day -- how to facilitate future projects with my wife and in other projects I work on with co-workers and friends?
