JOY of WEthe
The JOY of WE is an extension of ME Mapping into…
WE Mapping
for couples.
What follows is the formula to create an
ACTION PLAN that when worked on can
facilitate a joyful life.
It isn’t magic, but it helps people outline
what might make a difference and breaks
it down into bite sized steps that once in
motion can be magical.
WE MAPPING can take as little as an hour
or can turn into a whole afternoon’s
process.
It is simply a tool so it’s up to
you to decide how much JOY
you can handle.
In order to get to WE
we’ll need to start with ME.
ME Mapping that is.
I highly recommend reviewing
ME Mapping summary before
moving forward…
Ready? Ok then,
Welcome to…
WE MAPPING
WE
ME
There is no WE without ME.
So that’s where WE start…
ME
≥
WE
Because the WE can only be as happy as the ME we bring to it.
See, your happiness is the foundation of a joyful couple.
So take out your ME Map and let’s start there.
If yours is not current take some time
to refresh it or create a new one.
Don’t have one? Then by-golly get
yourself to ME Mapping immediately!

OK great, you’ve got a
map of your life as an
independent entity but
now let’s create a map that
takes inventory of your
couplehood.
The ME of WE is a separate Map of your
relationship and parts that you contribute
to. What makes up your relationship?
What do you deal with in your life that is
not all about you?

Now create a 3rd map of the WE of WE combining

Take an inventory of what your couplehood has on
the table at this time of your life.

You know the next step:
Time to ask yourselves--
WHAT’S WORKING?
Go ahead and together evaluate how you feel about
the top topics (no more then 10) you mapped out.
Each of you rating your own feelings about the ones
you consider most important at this time.

Now it’s time for the magic… the
CIRCLE OF JOY!
CIRCLE OF JOY
Pick any aspect of your life that you’d like
to transform and
DECLUTTER something first—
this will free up a little:
Time
Space
Money
& Energy
for you to spend on something
worthwhile.
Clearing stuff, people, appointments,
actually anything from our lives allows us
to focus more on what’s really important.
Now that you have a bit more freedom
and space in your life it’s time to choose
an area you’d like to ENGAGE:
What will make your life more joyful?
And last, but hardly least… pick someone
or something to actively APPREICATE.
Gratitude is for giving not hoarding–
Or assuming, especially in a couple, that
others knows how much they are valued.
WE
WEPRO
Ok before you start creating your
own action items it might be time
to also consult a professional to
help along the way.
Sometimes even the best
relationships can still
benefit from a PRO to
help guide them. So
while your creating an
ACTION PLAN consider if
you need a PRO in the
mix. Can an accountant,
trainer, therapist… make
a difference for stronger
WE Work?
Using your WE of WE Map create an ACTION PLAN
considering the following categories….
WE
Together
Professional Assistance
My Marriage
WEWE
ME
WEPRO
WEME
My Life
What can I work on
myself in regards to
my own
independent life
What can I
work on

regards to

What can
we work on

What professional help
can we incorporate

WE ACTION PLAN
Don’t get overwhelmed!
A full week’s action can take as
little as 10 minutes per item
and if you don’t have a few
hours a week to put in
-maybe your schedule should be the first thing you work on.
26
The key is to make sure you get
each bite-sized action item on
your calendar immediately.
Then continue to work the
CIRCLE OF JOY to keep the
momentum going.
As in all of life… you get what
you put in and are willing to
work for and towards. What’s
more important then your life
and core relationship?
Besides if you know the work
leads to why not have
fun with it!
