We’ve written about how to set effective goals in the past. The basic formula for goal-setting success is to keep them simple and specific, with dedicated time scheduled to review progress.
For example, my financial goals include:
Spend less on our home heating bill. I want to reduce it by $30 in January, February, and March. It’s a relatively small amount of money but represents a bigger and more meaningful goal for me, which is to be mindful of my environmental footprint. Every week I’ll check my account online to see how much fuel we’re using at home.
Buy a new house! That’s a big one. In a way, it’s a cumulation of many other goals. My real goal at this point is to buy smart and get a great mortgage rate. Specifically, I want to have everything in place by early spring.
Bring in more money. See the goal above - it’s going to be an expensive year! I want to avoid credit card debt, and besides basic frugality, I will need to bring in more money. I’m thinking about this now, and I want new income coming in by the beginning of February. I’ll work on this each weekend in January.
