This Year Set Financial Goals Not Resolutions

set financial goals

It’s that time of year again.  The time when everyone says to themselves “I’m going to do better this year!” and then by February 15th they’ve usually already given up.  The gyms are empty and resolutions have been lost in the mix of the busyness of life.  I’m here to tell you a secret…

It doesn’t have to be that way!  Start your year off right.  Set financial goals instead of resolutions which are little more than hoping it all works out with grit and sheer determination.  Let’s talk about how you can set clear goals and actually check off those pesky financial to-dos that keep eluding you.

Below is a podcast I recorded just before the turn of 2015 but the principles still ring 100% true.

In this podcast fellow financial coach Steve Stewart and I discuss how to set financial goals using a proven goal setting method called S.M.A.R.T.

No, that’s an acronym for a secret government agency headed by Don Adams.  This is a time-tested method used by high achievers to set definition for the goals.  It breaks down like this…

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Actionable
  • Realistic
  • Time-Bound

Listen below to hear how you can set financial goals for 2016 and actually get them done!
