076: Avoid Muddling Through by Keeping Your Eye on the Goal

with Michelle Dawson

Begin with the end in mind

[Stephen Covey]

In his book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey wrote, “Begin with the End in Mind means to begin each day, task, or project with a clear vision of your desired direction and destination, and then continue by flexing your proactive muscles to make things happen”.

Having a clear vision for the future applies to all areas of your life, parenting is no exception.

The mothering ‘project’ might be long, but having a goal for what you want to achieve with your children gives you clarity from the barrage of demands, the tedium of getting dinner on the table and the worry about their school work.

Today on High Five Friday, Michelle Dawson talks about the importance of parenting with the end in mind.
