So now you have created personal goals and at least satisfied with your first draft of personal goals.
So now its time to move onto something more difficult.
Setting family goals.
What is a good family goal? How to effectively set and monitor family goals
Look at the activities that you do (or should be doing) as a family.
- Annual vacation
- Managing the holidays -by budgeting personal/family time
- Sharing and balancing chores
- Managing the family budget and cutting costs
- Family project e.g. Eco friendly, recycle use, interior decorating, wall painting, setting up solar panels, neighborhood cleanup, kids business ideas etc
This gives you a rough idea about where your family goals should lie – get input and buy in of your family members by asking them to come up with ideas about the above activities that are done together.
It is important to give importance to all members of the family about what each and every person wants to do or does not want to do before deciding what is the right plan or goal.
Ask family members to come up with their own activities and budgets this will be the first step about how they will in the future set up their own family goals.
Lastly draft the family goals based on information and feedback that you received from all family members.
The next stage is the review and follow-up -where it is important to monitor if goals are being effectively met or whether plans need to be altered or goals need to be changed to allow for new contingencies.
Setting up family goals allows for a lot of creativity so don’t be limited to a particular format or be inhibited just go where the flow take you and always think out of the box.
Copying other people’s family goals may be a first step but then innovate your own unique goals that will be most suitable for your own family situation.
