On the surface, big-picture goals can seem daunting. Where do you even begin? What small, simple things can you and your partner do each day to work toward your goal? Think about all the tasks that go toward achieving your goal. Break down the larger goal into bite-size chunks.
The CHANGE Model can help you develop an action plan for your relationship goals in 2016, with six easy steps:
- 3. Action – one (baby) step at a time.
- Small and thoughtful gestures can have exponentially positive effect. Perhaps you log into your Netflix account and make sure the next movie that arrives is one that your partner casually mentioned he/she wanted to watch (show them you were listening!) Maybe you treat yourselves to takeout one evening if one or both of you has had a long day and don’t feel like cooking—not only can you relieve some of your partner’s stress, but you create an opportunity for quality time while sharing a meal.
Get started today and develop an action plan for a successful 2016. Tune in for step four next week.
