Reach Financial Wellness With Goal Setting

Goal setting

In the journey of financial well-being, one of the most important steps is setting clear and realistic saving goals. Whether you're saving up for a vacation, a new home, or just building an emergency fund, setting an intention is the foundation for building a robust financial future. Imagine setting off for a journey without a clear destination in mind. Not only would you feel lost and directionless, but the chances of reaching a desirable place would be minimal. This is similar to trying to save money without a clear goal. It's essential to know what you're aiming for in order to take steps in the right direction.

How to set better goals?

To reach your saving goals, make sure that they are:

  • Specific: Instead of saying, "I want to save money," say "I want to save €1,000."

  • Achievable: It's essential to set a goal that's realistic and attainable. If your monthly income doesn't allow you to save €500 a month, adjust your goal to a more manageable amount.

  • Time-boxed: Assign a deadline to your goal. If you want to save €1,000, decide on a feasible date, for instance, "I want to save €1,000 by the end of the next year."

Divide big goals into smaller ones

Large saving goals can feel daunting. But remember, every grand journey starts with a single step. By dividing your big goals into smaller, more manageable tasks, you can pave a path that's easier to walk on. For instance, if you aim to save €1,000 in a year, breaking it down means saving roughly €83 each month, or about €19 each week. By viewing it in smaller increments, the challenge becomes less overwhelming.

Here are some steps to divide your goals:

  • Monthly targets: calculate the monthly saving requirement to reach your yearly target. This gives clarity on immediate steps to take.

  • Weekly check-ins: conduct a weekly review of your savings. This helps in staying on track and making any necessary adjustments.

  • Daily habits: It's daily habits that lead to significant results. Find small daily practices, such as skipping the expensive coffee or cooking at home, which can contribute to your weekly and monthly savings.

Financial well-being is an ongoing journey, not a destination. By setting better saving goals and breaking them down into smaller, actionable steps, you pave the way for a secure and comfortable financial future. Remember, the journey of a thousand kilometres begins with the first step. By setting clear, achievable goals, you're ensuring each step is in the right direction.
