29. Tackling Difficult Challenges

In one psychological study, couples were given the option of trying to complete one of two puzzles- one easy, and one hard. The couples who chose to work on the more challenging puzzle together actually ended up stay together longer than the people who chose the easy task. This goes to show that partners who are willing to overcome difficult times are more likely to last a lifetime. And when it comes to building a successful career, there will always be bumps in the road. So it’s key to finding someone who is willing to stick around when the going gets tough.
