Are you concerned that you and your partner aren’t on the same page?
Do you wonder if your family think it is all worth it?
These are natural feelings if you haven’t made certain you know, talked things through and written down what you both want to achieve.
You used to talk about the future, but life got super busy and now you are worn out and drained.
It’s tough to find the time, let alone the energy to properly talk about what you want to achieve as individuals and as a family.
And I know you feel the pressure of needing to provide and to be there when it matters and to be a great role model.
and that's before you consider what you really really what...
This is what you need to do...
1) Be honest about your life.
How satisfied are you with each of the important aspects of your life?
Health, relationships, work, environment etc
2) Make a list of all the things you want to Be, Do and Have.
How does achieving these make you feel?
3) Narrow it down to the 5 things that are really important to you.
4) Talk to your partner - ask them to repeat the process.
5) Spend some quality time with your partner.
What things are both your lists?
7) Decide on your top 5 or so priorities.
These priorities will become your shared family priorities.
It's useful if there is at least one each personal to you and one personal to your partner, but the number isn't as important as ensuring that you understand and respect each others priorities.
This list is about creating a shared focus and this process will build a deeper a relationship, improving communication, and know you'll feel happier being certain of your direction.
Once you have this list of family priorities, built on sound foundations and starting on the same page, you'll be ready to take action!
