SMART Financial Goals

Setting yourself SMART financial goals can help you to keep focused and maintain progress when striving to achieve more in your life.

Choosing goals carefully to ensure that they are motivating and exciting will help you to achieve your potential. To do this you should ensure that each of your financial goals is SMART: 3D Character and Thinking , He is standing with question mark


Your goal should be well defined & clear. What exactly do you want to achieve?


It has to be easily measured, to allow you to identify progress and also to know when you have achieved your goal.


It should be challenging, but not totally outwith your reach. Take into consideration your other commitments when making your financial goals.


It should be something that you are willing and able to work towards, as well as one that you believe is possible.


Leave enough time to achieve your goal, but not so much that you lose sight of it. When will you have achieved this by? What date? It helps to phrase your financial goal as though it has already been achieved

I have cut my outgoings by £100 per month and paid this onto my credit cards.  By doing this I have paid off all my credit card debt and am debt-free on 30th Septemeber.  

Read about how setting financial goals helped me to save £800 in one month and then why not have a go yourself?

Set yourself a financial goal and make it a priority to achieve this goal.

Good luck
