What would you want your friends and family to learn about making and achieving goals from your example?
The main thing that I tell people these days and I have written about it on here a lot, is ask the older generations in your family about their lives. Make it a priority to ask questions.
If you do a quick google search on questions to ask family you will come up with lots of ideas. take a notebook, a tape recorder or even use your phone, or do a live video on Facebook.
Just ask the questions.
If you are looking through photos together take notes of who is who and where and what is in the photos because I can assure you as someone who has no one to ask it makes the lives of the people in those photos no existent.
