Why do we do this? At first I didn’t really understand about goal setting, but my wife really encouraged us to set goals. My reasoning for not setting goals was that I am just a driven person and have a daily checklist of items that need to get checked, so I’m always moving forward. The thing was that I wasn’t always moving forward in any specific direction.
So we now set goals and I’ve really come to enjoy this weekend of prayer, reflection, talking about life, and setting family and personal goals. It is so fun to go over the previous years goals and see what you’ve accomplished. Also, each month throughout the year we look at our goals briefly to see if we’re on track.
