\Happy New Year! The turn of a new year, new month, or even a new day, can bring a spark of new hope and motivation! As you are getting into the new year and planning on all the ways you will be a better you, I want to remind you of how you and your partner can set goals for your relationship! In this article we’ll discuss 10 questions to help you set goals with your partner. Couples who take the time to share how they will support each other in individual goals and set goals for themselves as a couple, are more likely to experience a higher level of relationship satisfaction. Setting long term goals together also shares a sense of commitment and security in the relationship. ​ Plus, I should also add that you are much more likely to reach goals with other people (partner included) cheering you on.​

Here are some questions for you both to consider during your conversation:

  1. We are most thankful for _____ happening in 2023.
  2. We will improve ____ in order to move past ____ that happened in 2023.
  3. We both learned ______ in 2023.
  4. We are looking forward to ____ in 2024 because this will mean ______.
  5. I will help you reach your goal of _____ because I know how important it is for you.
  6. We will prioritize _____ in order to increase our connection.
  7. We will show support to each other by doing _____.
  8. We will check in with each other every _____ to be sure the other person’s needs are being met.
  9. We will do ____ in order to reach our financial goals.
  10. We will take care of ourselves by doing _____.

​​Remember that the only way you will reach the goals you have set for yourselves above, is to have a plan of action to carry the goals out.
