What are your financial goals? You may hope to get out of debit, retire early, or have a million in your super by the age of 65. Whatever your goals, the first step to achieving them is to write them down. Writing out your financial goals, setting a timeline and steps to achieve those goals will mean the difference between financial success and failure. If we fail to plan, we are planning to fail.
- Solidify what your goals are.
- Work out if they are achievable and realistic.
- Put good habits and clear deliverables in place.
Implementation and cost
