The Status Quo… What is it and How to Use it in Your Relationships

Today  @ 1 pm (CST) on Healthy Mind & Body radio… “The Status Quo”... Okay I’m pretty sure that you’ve heard the term before “status quo” but do you know what it means? The exact definition is a Latin phrase meaning the existing state of affairs, particularly with regards to social or political issues. In the sociological sense, it generally applies to maintaining or changing existing social structure and values.

It is the nominal form of the prepositional Latin phrase "in statu quo" – literally "in the state in which", which itself is a shortening of the original phrase in “statu quo res erant ante bellum”, meaning "in the state in which things were before the war".

That cracks me up and it’s very important distinction “before the war” because generally when people change the rules in an established relationship, a battle or war ensues… These cause businesses to fail, marriages to dissolve and friendships to implode… but they don’t have to, if you follow a few simple guidelines.

Join me today at 1 pm (CST) and let’s talk about how to make an agreement, how to keep a agreement and what to do if you need to change or modify an agreement…

Talk to you then,
M
