I love to set goals, New Year Goals, weekly goals, monthly goals and Financial Year Goals. Do other mums set goals? I find setting goals and reaching targets motivating and like to work towards reaching my targets ahead of time. How do you stay motivated to achieve your goals and targets?

Ask your question

  • If your struggling to put a little money aside open up a Christmas Club Type of Account with your bank where an amount is put straight into this account. Come end of year it’s a great relief.



  • I set goals every week yet I am still struggling to go through with them Loose weight,save money,visit people spring cleaning OMG the list goes on. Go back to bed and start your day again.



  • I lack motivation and goals. Maybe they go hand in hand? Maybe I don’t set goals because I lack motivation to follow through on them…..



  • This is something I am starting to do and not quite sure what I’m doing. Am starting to write down my goals and a few steps to get there.



  • i think set reasonable goals which are achievable then they work well.



  • To break even.
    We’ve been slipping backward a bit since taking on a mortgage so hopefully I can find a balance between servicing the mortgage and the lifestyle we lead. Fingers crossed :)



  • I can set goals i just cannot seem to stick to them or achieve them which is really frustrating – I haven’t been able to pinpoint why I fail at them just yet but I am working on it – my goal is to pay off the credit card debt, put money into savings and get an emergency fund! – probably biting off more than I can chew but I think I need to do this to have a less stressful life – wish me luck!



  • Motivation and goals go side by side for me – need both of them!



  • Good on you Jenniw – saving for an investment is a great idea. Watching investments and savings grow is quite rewarding.



  • I just don’t get the process of setting goals.. or maybe I just don’t have the motivation,, however for this financial year my goal is to save enough money to make a small investment.
