For many years I would tell people my priorities are God first, my family is second, work is third.
I tried to live this out, but much of the time, my priorities ended up being Work first, work second and work third.
This all changed when a friend of mine told me about his annual family goal setting weekend.
They would go away on a mini-vacation every year for the purpose of setting family goals and putting all of the important family events on the calendar.
I was a goal-setting fanatic at work, but never considered doing family on purpose.
A few weeks later my wife Rhonda and I drove two hours away and locked our-selves in a hotel room to begin putting our family values and vision in writing.
We also started writing down some goals.
This is a good time for you to do your first annual family goal-setting weekend.
Schedule your date nights, family nights, birthdays, vacations and whatever else is important to you.
