What Are Your 2011 Goals?
November 28, 2010
Thanksgiving just ended and your New Years resolutions are probably the farthest thing from your mind right now. But we all know times flies so before you know it we’ll be in 2011. If you wait to set your goals until next year has already begun you’ll be starting out behind.
People who start their diet a few weeks before January 1st and hit the ground running have more success than those who begin New Year’s diets two or three weeks into the next year. From a financial perspective, there is spending planning you can do to support your goals for next year – and don’t forget the year end tax moves you can make now.
Of course, one of the keys to achieving your goals is to set specific objectives that you can track and measure progress against. I don’t have all my goals detailed out for next year yet but I will in the next week or two. So, get to work on your goals to make 2011 a productive year!
