In this blog post I share one of the most important action steps that super strong families consistently take. This will bind your family together, bringing each of you cherished memories for many years. Set aside other less important things to make sure you do this. Family comes first!
Have Some Experiences Together as a Family
I want to share a powerful strategy that I think a lot of us are missing. It really strengthens our families, build that family culture and create that FANTASTIC life! This strategy is to have experiences together!
I want you to take a look at your life and ask yourself:
- What great memorable experiences have you had in the last 90 days?
- And how about for the last year?
Many families are just so busy, so go through the motions and they don’t have new memorable exciting experiences! Moreover, they have the same experiences day after day, week after week, year after year and so on and so far.
So I want to challenge you to purposely and intentionally create great experiences and great stories! And I want you to share those stories with your family. To create this bond of stories and experiences.
Do Something Different
Get out and experience the world! Do things that are really great and unforgettable.
We are now in beautiful Costa Rica, we are creating this bond and having experiences and do a lot of things together as a family. We try new food, go to beautiful places, do new things, go out and surf together and a lot of other great stuff.
You have to do something significant every time. Each week do something good, each month do something significant and each year do something great!
Think of it from a different perspective:
- What would your children remember this year?
- What would your children remember about this month?
- What will stand out to them and be a strength and an anchor for them?
Unfortunately, too many of us are just going through that humdrum existence! Just moving along and not creating great experiences!
So plan something today. Do not wait until tomorrow, plan some unforgettable experience for you and your family that you will carry with you the rest of your life.
