Financial Goals – Setting

This section will help you come up with good financial goals.  Brainstorm a list of financial goals.   It’s good to dream and have carrots to strive for.   Goals can provide short term motivation and a long term vision to help you organize your efforts and make sure that you have the resources you need to achieve them.

Your goals should be specific and clearly identified.  This will help you better focus on what you need to do to achieve them.   Here are things to think about in setting each of your goals.

1. Set a specific goal
2. Make a goal that’s objectively measurable, something that you can measure progress on.
3. Make sure your end goal is attainable and something you can control.
4. Make your goal time-bound.
5. Make a realistic plan to pursuit your goal, given your time-limit and current situation.
