Set Goals with Your Spouse
It’s easier to achieve our goals when we’re not trying to go it alone. For many of us, our closest and most trusted companion is a spouse. Yet many couples rarely plan or set goals together – and this can actually make it harder to achieve them. To improve your odds of success, set joint and individual goals together and put them on paper. Write out your specific goals for the year and the habits you hope to develop. Then discuss how both of you can help the other achieve each goal. Break these annual resolutions into habits, monthly and weekly goals, and daily to-dos. Then write down what you hope to achieve as a couple. Joint goals help align your personal and professional pursuits. This “contract” increases accountability and allows your partner to think about specific ways in which they can act to support you.
