Where do you get your idea of what’s “enough” to do in a day?
It’s one thing to just say, “I know when I’ve done enough.” But when you’re in partnership with someone else, you need to have a mutually agreed-upon standard of some sort.
I have no idea how my parents arrived at their extreme Puritan work ethic standard—did they both get it from their own parents? I think they probably did. I don’t know how to go about negotiating anything else, though.
Part of the problem is that it doesn’t leave any room for there being any other standard. There’s a pretty strong “I’m right and you’re wrong” tendency (at least, I have one) when it comes to this kind of thing.
