Financial goals that you can achieve in 20 minutes or less that will have you feeling good for the rest of the year.
The start of a new year is always exciting, full of rejuvenation, goal-setting, and what feels like an opportunity for big changes that are much-needed in your chaotic life…
...and then the champagne wears off, and January 1st starts with a hangover instead of a gym session. Or you might have found yourself in the mindset of being completely over failed resolutions, that you didn’t even bother setting any goals for yourself this year.
And hey, that’s okay. But, just because we are into the second week of January doesn’t mean you can’t make some small adjustments to your life that can set this decade up for success. Nobody is perfect, and creating longstanding habits is hard. The trick is to implement small, easy tweaks that will stick, not giant, life-changing goals.
Another goal-setting tip is to avoid vague resolutions that won’t really get you anywhere. Instead of “I’m going to be better with my money in 2020” or “I’m going to save more”, try resolutions that are specific and actionable, and ones that will help you throughout the year with little to no ongoing effort. The following three goals are just that- things that are easy to implement yet will leave you feeling good about yourself all year long.
