One year ago this week we set some goals. We identified goals to focus on YOU, your RELATIONSHIPS, and your BUSINESS. If you haven’t thought about these yet for 2012, then this is a great time to revisit these posts.
YOU RUN THE MACHINE(s)…
So often when we set goals we make the mistake of focusing on everything else and everyone else in our lives. The mistake here is that we often neglect ourselves. But, we run all of these machines. We are the worker bees in our businesses and often the glue holding our families together. If we don’t take time to oil the machine, the machine is going to break down.

Today, let’s set some relationship goals. Now, when I say “relationships” I mean all of the people in your life: your friends, your husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, kids, parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters, etc. I want you to think about this in your goal-setting because so often we neglect the people around us while we are building empires. Life is about knowing how to prioritize: when to do what. Setting goals for your personal relationships will ensure that the people in your life get their turn.
