Goals - Making a list and checking it twice!
I found a list of goals that we had made in the early years of our marriage. The list seemed ambitious in view of the large amount of debt we had. We didn't make mucy money back then and had 4 young children.
We were amazed that every goal had been met beyond what we could have imagined. For example - at the top of the page above goals that were broken into financial, education, spiritual, etc. was a scrawled note "save to buy a new car for George?" He now drives a 7! Whoa!!!! I had hoped to finish college and we wanted to buy a nicer, larger home. I earned my B.S. in 1992 and we bought a much nicer larger home five years later - on a 15 year note that we later re-financed at a lower rate of interest for 11 years!
We are so psyched and will be making another list of goals over the Christmas holidays. We plan to include this list in our New Year's celebration and I may post it here.
Consider starting your own list - our only recommendation? Think LARGE!
