If you missed my mention of this last month, the idea is that you and your bride give each other three things to change or improve during the next year. The three should include one that is small/easy, one that it of medium difficulty, and one that will take some real effort.
You each make a list, and submit it to the other. You are each free to veto anything that seems unfair or too difficult, or you can suggest a modified goal. Keep working until you each have three goals for 2011.
Borrowing from a tip my bride did a couple of days ago, make your goals SMART:
S – Specific
M – Measurable
A – Attainable
R – Relevant
T – Targeted Time
Once you have both selected three things to work on, take a few moments to write down where you think the other is on their three goals at this time. Don’t share now, hang onto the document for later in the year.
I will post about this a few times during this year, with suggestions for keeping on track and for encouraging each other.
