Our goals list is broken up as follows:
Goals to your spouse
Obviously our bucket list has fun things we'd like to do throughout the year, family goals are things like doing a devotion every night, financial goals is pretty self explanatory, as is personal goals. Goals to your spouse is the category where I give Josh three things I'd like to see him work on in the new year and he gives me three things he'd like to see me work on in the new year. We keep our sheet in our night stand, so we can pull it out at any time and look over it during the year. We also looked back the other night on our 2014 goals and it was fun to see how far we've come since then and what we've accomplished.
We haven't written them down on paper yet, but we've got some pretty lofty financial goals we've discussed for the new year and I'm excited to dive head first into the year with intention and discipline. I know this is an area that I am going to have to work hard to control, because I do love a good shopping trip. But truly, we have more than enough and this year we really want to work on padding our savings and paying off some extra on our house.
Goals get me so fired up and excited, I love a good challenge. But I also want to follow through, which is the hardest part for me. January can be great...but then comes February, March, April...and life gets busy, excuses start piling up, etc. That's one thing I'm really excited about regarding the Powersheets, that I'll be sitting down to revisit my goals each month to keep me focused and on track.
Whenever I finish up the prep work for my Powersheets, I'm hoping to blog about my journey through them, share a few of my thoughts and my word for the year.
How do you go about setting goals for the year? I'd love to hear!
