What is the essential mission or purpose of this organisation, and what is its main strategy in accomplishing that purpose?
What is your family all about? Where are you leading your family? Do you have a clear destination in mind? Do you have a flight plan?
People are willing to invest time and energy into running their business, but when it comes to their family, they think, ‘Oh, I don’t need to do that.’
They think, ‘My family isn’t going to fire me, but my boss might.’
Is your family a mission-less family? Who is the spiritual head of your family? Who is the spiritual heart of your family?
If the family is the most important organisation in our lives, as many people believe, why do we spend so much time at work planning, clarifying what success looks like and how we’re going to get there, and then we come home, we’re so reactive and unintentional about family life? It doesn’t make any sense.
Why not use some of the business tools that help grow your companies at home, and see how your family will turn out.
Your family needs a mission to guide it toward intentional living.
Remember, no other success in public life can compensate for failure in the home. For if you have failed at home you have failed eternally.
