Goal Setting

Here is a good Goal Setting vs Scheduling post.

Goals are long term "improvements" to expectations. Expectations are just that - activities that are scheduled. School work, chores, family time, sports, volunteer activities, hobbies, and clubs are examples of expectations. Assigning priority to expectations into blocks of available time teaches time management. It teaches that sometimes, you can't do everything. Priorities come first.
That says a lot already, and there is more -- a checklist of life goals and how to translate them into actionable statements. A lot of it is directed towards teaching your children these time management skills. As I mentioned, usually it is my kids that teach ME these management skills.
