On one of my previous posts, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past to be exact, I had talked about certain items on my bucket list that have a special characteristic in common; they are perennial. These goals are supposed to be ongoing undertakings rather than consummative tasks. I am having trouble coming up with ways to measure my progress on this type of goal. I have identified 4 such items on my list and will include them below with the hopes that you might give me helpful suggestions:
#4 Raising Happy, Healthy, Confident, Cooperative, Responsible, and Faithful children
#5 Growing in Faith
#16 Cultivating valuable friendships
#19 Fostering a close-knit family environment with my kids, parents, siblings and extended family members
I feel like I am already engaged in most of these goals on a daily basis, but how do I determine if I am on the right track?
