Spiritual and family goal setting pattern of farm families in different socio-cultural regions of Punjab
Author(s): Pavneet Kaur and Dr. Harsharan Kaur Gill
The present study was undertaken to study the existing spiritual and family goal setting pattern, assess the effect of socio-personal factors of the homemakers on the spiritual and family goal setting pattern and explore the constraints in goal setting and attainment of farm families. Results revealed that overall goal setting pattern of farm families was quite erroneous (overall SMART percent score of 29.56) with spiritual goal setting percent score of 22.69 and family 36.44. It was further revealed that long term goal setting pattern of farm families was comparatively better (52.12 percent) than mid-term (22.15 percent) and short term (14.43 percent) goal setting pattern as respondents were found to be wishful in the guise of long term goals and quite poor in organising efforts in the form of mid and short term goals directed towards long term goals. A positive but non significant relationship between the age (0.07), education (0.01), family type (0.05), family size (0.04) and family income (0.02) of the respondents and their goal setting pattern was found. Major constraint faced by the respondents while setting the goals was lack of training to set goals (88.99 percent) and while achieving the goals was unexpected interruption (95.99 percent).
