Why did you load the dishwasher like that? 9 Whopping Mistakes That Push Love Away shows how to live the message I spoke about in my TEDx Talk, The Power of Mindfulness: What You Practice Grows
Stronger. The practices Marilyn offers for each Whopping Mistake and Healthy Habit allow you to recognize, observe, understand, and literally redesign, not just your reactions in the moment, but who you are in your relationships at home, at work, and, ultimately, in life. Marilyn’s approach is gentle, non-judgmental, funny, and always honest.

It’s a pleasure to recommend Marilyn’s new book, as she brings a wealth of real-world experience coupled with a powerful understanding of the actual drivers of healthy, sustainable, mutually-beneficial and mutually enjoyable relationships.  Drawing on her extensive background in ontological coaching and personal transformation, she outlines many of the biggest mistakes many of us inadvertently make…and offers a series of practical Healthy Habits proven to make meaningful improvements in our most important relationships, as well as in the “quality of our journey” along the way.  Readable, relatable and highly recommended!

Marilyn Sutherland has written a transformational book about kindness in love, business, and life. My book, The Profit of Kindness, is about building lasting business relationships. This book is about building lasting love (which is the name of her website). She walks through several healthy habits that are the antidote to our whopping mistakes (which are also habits). With Marilyn’s exercises in the book, you can make the changes you’ve always wanted to make. This book will show you how!

She shared her relationship journey from being single for 30 years to being married for more than 20 years. This book takes her story to a new level with practice exercises for the reader to develop the skills for a healthy relationship and communication that she spent decades learning.
