Making a PLAN for Making Your WISHES Come True

It’s week two of the New Year. Research shows that 25% of people who have made a “New Year’s Resolution” have already abandoned their plans by the end of the first week and around 30% will have slacked by the end of the second week. An article I read this week stated that this is often because many New Year’s Resolutions are more of “wishes”, and these “wishes” lack an actual PLAN.

Research shows that at the heart of a healthy relationship are key elements such as respect, trust, and healthy communication. Couples need to take time for each other, and make one another their top priority. Maybe this means scheduling in a date night at least once or twice a month. Maybe this means that you take 15 minutes for each other throughout the day where you can have uninterrupted
conversation. Maybe this looks like providing intentional acts of service for each other. Whatever you choose to do, make sure that you put it into a plan of action with measurable steps that are SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time Oriented. Check in with yourself and your spouse on a weekly, monthly, and quarterly basis.
