Crystal Clear White

Mommy Moments!!

I thought I’d share what I do (or at least attempt to do) for my organization as part of my job description. I advocate strategy management and continual improvement. And I must admit that it is a rewarding and challenging job!

People tend to get trapped in day-to-day activities and it is a challenge to make them appreciate the overall view of what’s going to happen if/ when they make things happen. It is also a challenge to make them accept not things are not “good enough” and there are still opportunities (lots of!) for improvement.

As parents, we are all guilty of this sometimes. We tend to get lost in attending to our children’s day-to-day needs such as putting them to sleep, making them eat healthy, attending to their home works, preparing for that birthday parties and playgroups, that we lose the reason why we are doing these things and how do we see our family several years from now.

In organizations, it is important the we set the mission, vision and brand values. I believe that it should also be the case for parenting. Mission is why we exist, vision is what we want to achieve in the next number of years and brand values are what traits are important to us. I could write on and on about this but bottom line for this post is that we, as parents, should be able to set goals for our family’s success NOW. And the important part of this, we need to be able to articulate this in a way that our stakeholders (family members) would understand.

All successful people, families or organizations plan to live life to the fullest by planning strategies and achievements. They create their own chances in life. They set goal in advance so they can take control to drive themselves towards success.

It might be difficult to define the your family’s vision for 5-10 years but it has to be done to arrive at annual goals.

Goals define target. Targets make things achievable. (I should stop with this jargon really, I am driving myself nuts!)

So for the WHITE entry this week for Mommy Moments. A visual representation of our family’s target in the next years:

we will own a Porsche! ;)

sailing - soon we will!
here's our little executive ;)

Life is so colorful at Mommy Moments:  Orange, Green, Purple and this week's WHITE.
