Setting off for Edinburgh without a Sat Nav, compass or flight plan
Posted by: Sue Atkins
How many parents do you know that have actually pondered the bigger picture to their parenting?
Most parents I meet and work with have got a bit stuck in the “socks and pants” of life going round in circles stuck in the undone homework and untidy bedroom scenarios and don’t look up to ponder the more important aspects of bringing up their kids.
It’s easily done ….. as I’ve been there, done that, got the T –shirt too !
Goal setting is a truly life changing experience for most parents – who rarely think to apply it to bringing up their kids. They often have been coached at work and have set goals in that part of their life, but have never thought to have a bigger picture goal for raising happy, confident, well – behaved kids who turn into happy, confident, well -balanced adults.
If you don’t set any goals in your life it’s a bit like setting off for Edinburgh without a Sat Nav, flight plan or compass – you can easily get blown off course.
So sit down with a cup of coffee and a pen and jot down some simple, clear goals for your life, including your family life and then take the small, small steps every day, every week , every month and every year towards accomplishing them and then relax ….. as something magical starts to happen when you do !
