Last year, Keane read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. To say the book left its mark on him would be an understatement. He found it to be such a helpful tool, not only for his professional career, but in his personal life as well.
The book encourages readers to create a personal mission statement to serve as a constant reminder of their priorities and goals. Keane wrote one for himself that he keeps at work and wanted us to come up with a family mission statement to display in our home.
I loved the idea.
So, a while back we worked together to come up with a list of things we felt were paramount for a happy life and a successful marriage.
Here is what we decided on.
We display our family mission statement in our home and refer to it frequently whenever we veer off track. The process of working together to come up with our list sparked great conversation and helped us further understand one another's deepest values.
Ultimately, we hope that by keeping a visual reminder of common goals we hold for our family, we will grow deeper together while also holding each other accountable for our actions.
LIFE IS GOOD TODAY!
