If you know anything about goal setting then you know it's imperative to think about and set goals to have success in whatever you do. Whether it's starting a new business, developing your career, or working within a relationship. Having goals not only structures and gives positive direction, it focuses ones attention on what's important. Even within a marriage or a significant relationship, it's important to talk, communicate and think about the future as well as goals. People most often make assumptions that things will just work out and take care of themselves...love conquers all. However, as with anything else, if you are looking for success, setting goals helps guarantee the greater possibility of producing positive results. Having positive intentions and setting them forth creates a better basis for success.
Choosing to discuss goals with your partner will not only lead to a better understanding for each of you in the relationship, but enlighten you both as to what each of you truly want. As a result, you will have better communication and a stronger relationship with the possibility of greater long term success.
This is definitely a good read and something I think 90% of couples do not do or think about.
Experts say having goals is a definite must in having a healthy and strong marriage and/or relationship.
