Phil McKenzie on How to Measure the Quality of Relationships in Life

In Chapter 2 of 20 in his 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, entrepreneur Phil McKenzie answers "How Do You Measure the Quality of Relationships in Your Life?" McKenzie shares how he stays away from assessing relationships based on tit-for-tat gestures. Instead, he goes with his gut feeling to assess whether or not he has felt validated in the relationship. This helps him determine the health of the relationship, which then leads to him deciding what action, if any, to take around growing or repairing the relationship.
