The #1 Worst Way to Make a Resolution

One of my favorite things about Christmas, is that it is EXACTLY one week from New Year’s  day.  as a family, Felicia ( my wife) and I begin our annual operational plans  for the next year  on Christmas.   Now, don’t get be wrong: we do have fund and enjoy ourselves with friends and family, but right After our morning devotion, we start serious discussions about plans for the following year in line with our 5-year family strategic plan.

This year, our operational plan is different.  Unlike years past where we typically had 10 items on there, this year, we have 3.


Here’s what I mean:

1 major goal for Felicia
1 major goals for myself,
1 major joint family goal.

Both of us will hit our individual personal goals with support from each other by June, and then proceed to attacking the joint goal which we will hit by December.

So why have we opted to plan out year this way?

It goes back to the title of this post.
