GOAL SETTING

ABOUT TODAY’S CHALLENGE ACTITIVY

A big part of bringing the spark back to your relationship is about planning for your future together.  In setting goals as a couple, you’ll have more conversations, and create more memories.

Today’s challenge activity is divided into 2 steps: setting goals for this year, and setting goals for farther into the future.

TODAY’S CHALLENGE OBJECTIVE

The goal here is to reconnect as a couple by prioritizing your  marriage.  Once you’ve set some measurable, attainable goals, working toward them will be at the forefront of your focus. 

Through this challenge, you’ll grow closer to a happier marriage, and a happier life!

Step 1: Dream up your Year

ACTIVITY

Set 1 goal you would like to achieve this year in your marriage.  They can be financial goals, goals about your relationship skills, and so on.  (It’s best if you can do this with your spouse.  But, if for some reason that’s not possible, you can still set a marriage goal for this year).

GUIDELINES

1) Make it a S.M.A.R.T. goal :

  • S—Specific
  • M—Measurable
  • A—Achievable
  • R—Realistic
  • T—Time bound

2) Write it down.  A goal is just a wish until you write it down, and continually work toward it everyday!

3) Make a planWrite down the action steps you’ll need to take to achieve your goal.  Goals go nowhere without a plan!

Step 2: Dream up your Future

ACTIVITY

Set 3 goals you would like to achieve in the next 5 years in your marriage.  They can be financial goals, goals about your relationship skills, and so on.  (It’s best to do this with your spouse.  But, if for some reason that’s not possible, you can still set a marriage goal for this year).
