I took a week off from blogging so I could focus on my coursework. While I have been on my blogging
sabbatical a few notable things have occurred. The biggest being, Dr. B and I sat down and planned out 2011. We Built a spreadsheet which displays every month of the year across the top, and down the side we have major areas in our life: health/fitness, financial, travel/leisure, career/education, relationship. For each month we set goals that we wanted to achieve as they pertain to each area. For instance a health/fitness goal for me is to go to our family doctor and have a physical exam and blood work. Not that I have been sick lately, but, it’s important for women to have regular physical exams besides the yearly obgyn visit.
It took us about two hours to complete the spreadsheet and talk through some of our goals. We planned out every trip were going to take, such as the one next month for my birthday, were going skiing in Utah :-) The biggest thing for me wasn’t the end result, but the process of talking through what we wanted to accomplish as a couple and as individuals, being open, willing, and unafraid to voice our concerns, feeling, and opinions of the ideas that the other shared.
Have you and your SO done anything like setting goals and planning out the year together, what did you use to record those goals? Do you have any tips or tricks to share?
Here is a link to the spreadsheet we created.
