Goal Setting

My son Cameron turns 21 in about 1 week. So, I just spent the last 2 hours with my son going over goal-setting for the next year (e.g. jobs, money, establishing credit, place to live, career, etc.). We discussed setting up spreadsheets, writing down realistic goals, setting time frame to achieve them, establishing short-term and long-term goals, having a way measure them, rewarding oneself, being proactive, etc.

By the time we were finished, my voice was getting hoarse from talking so much and long. He gets up and says,

"Thanks Dad! That was really helpful. I'll get going on them next week some time…"

I feel like Charlie Brown, i.e. "ARRRGHHH!"

(Note: He was trying to be funny when he said that. I laughed and really enjoyed his humor)
