Welcome to the latest series - Setting 2008 Financial Goals!
I love goal planning. Why? It helps me ensure that my life is not wasted in the pursuit of the boring and mundane.
Here are the steps already shared.
Step 1: WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS
Ink and lead last WAY LONGER than your memory will!
Step 2: PUT A COMPLETION DATE NEXT TO EACH GOAL
If it weren't for deadlines and last minutes, half of the world's work would never get done!
Step 3: ESTABLISH ACCOUNTABILITY
There is nothing like having someone ask, "How are you doing on your goals?" to motivate one to achieve their goals!
Step 4: TAKE ACTION!!!
I have a quote that I say regularly. It came to me after having been caught in one too many horrible, pointless, useless meetings!
"Thoughts and talk without action are mere babble!"
Enough of the planning. Enough of the talking. It is time to make it happen! Nothing moves until it is shoved. Attack the goal.
It is TIME! What can you do right now to achieve one of the goals? Perhaps you can start off 2008 by having one (or more) of your goals completed BEFORE 2008 even starts!
Call and set up the appointment with an investment broker. Go ahead and get the new insurance quotes. Chop up the credit cards. Close the credit card accounts. Sell the truck. Go to the TOOLS page and put together your first-ever INCOME - OUTGO = EXACTLY ZERO budget!
I will close the series with a great quote from Will Rogers …
"Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there."
- Will Rogers
