Your Family’s Future

We’ve all been involved in important projects. Key aspects to successful projects include planning, focus, and accountability. All of the parents that I have coached say that their family is their most important priority of all. Of all the parents I’ve spoken to, nearly all of them say that (after physical health) their relationship with their child is most important thing of all, followed by helping their kids succeed.

With this in mind, it makes sense to get intentional about what we are doing. How much time have you set aside to think about and plan how you might build the best relationship with your child (ren)? How much time have you set aside to study or discuss how to most effectively empower you child toward his or her own meaningful success?

If these are the most important things, they deserve attention.

Here is a way you can give it some attention. Below, I give you some questions to get you started on creating a vision and a plan:fullsizeoutput_627

  • Do you believe it’s possible to create an intentional future for you and your family?
    • What would that take?
  • What is your role as a leader in the family? What is your job? What isn’t?
  • What life do you want to help your children create? Why?
  • What is the best kind of relationship you could have with your child(ren)? What does it look like? Is it happening?
  • Paint the picture. If all went well, what would things look like 2 years from now, 10 years from now?
  • What can you adjust right now so that you are living more inline with that vision?
  • How will you keep yourself on track? 
  • What is getting in your way to create the future you want?

If you think you might need some assistance, accountability, or new skills to help develop this vision and to keep you on track, Contact me

    Great questions! Most important job in the world.. makes total sense to do it better creatively, systematically and with accountability. I mean the love is already there in spades. This seems like the most fundamental profound work a parent can do yet these questions and this type of approach feels brand new.. thank God someone is writing it!
    Huge High-5 Drew!
