Set S.M.A.R.T. Financial Goals

As you establish financial goals, consider making them S.M.A.R.T.

S – Specific

M – Measureable

A – Actionable

R – Realistic

T – Time-bound

Creating goals using these guidelines can help ensure that what you're working towards is achievable. Giving yourself a timeline for reaching your goal is a huge motivator to stay the course.

If you don’t have a set destination to work towards, it can be hard to find the passion or drive to save. Whether it’s a car you’ve been eyeing, a house, or retirement, carefully defining these goals and figuring out how much you’ll need to save can help you craft a plan for getting there.
