Financial Security: Become A Planner

Research shows that those who plan for the future end up having more wealth than those who don’t. Successful people are goal-oriented. They set goals and develop a plan to achieve them.

Even writing down a few goals will help you achieve them. Being goal-oriented and following a plan means taking control of your life. This is an important step in improving your financial independence and security.

Set short term goals to achieve long term

Instead of setting long-term goals, set yourself a series of small short-term goals that are both measurable and precise. For example: Pay off credit card debts or student loans within a few months.

When you hit your short-term goals, set yourself new ones. Constantly setting and achieving short-term goals ensures that you achieve your longer-term goals.
