Time Bound Goals

To help you think about the future and see how smaller goals can fit into a larger goal, it’s good to have different time-bound goals from the immediate to the longer term.

  1. Immediate goals are things you can implement within a week or two.
  2. Short-term goals can be achieved within three months.
  3. Medium-term goals can be achieved within a year.
  4. Long term goals take longer than a year.

Create some immediate, short-term, medium-term, and long-term goals. (Remember to make them specific, objectively measurable, attainable, time bound with a realistic plan to achieve them.)  A simple example of a short-term goal might be: save $100 each month for the next 3 months.
