Financial New Year’s Resolutions: How to Stick to Them with Professional Advice

2023 Planner for New Year's Resolution Financial Goals

January 27, 2023

The start of a new year is the perfect time to reflect on your financial situation and make some resolutions for the year ahead. Here are some tips for setting and sticking to financial New Year’s resolutions:


Make it Specific

Instead of resolving to “save more money,” make your resolution specific. For example, set a goal to save a percentage or exact amount each month or to pay off a particular debt by a specific date.


Make it Realistic

Set realistic goals that you can achieve in the given time frame. It can be demotivating if the goal is not achievable, and you may end up not sticking to it.


Create a Plan

Once you’ve set your financial goals, create a plan to achieve them. Break down your goal into smaller, actionable steps and make a schedule to follow.


Track your Progress

Keep track of your progress and celebrate your achievements along the way. It will help you stay motivated and on track.


Get an Accountability Partner

Having someone to hold you accountable can help keep you on track. Share your goals with a friend or family member and ask them to check in on your progress.


Review and Adjust

Review your progress and adjust your plan as needed. If you find a goal is not achievable or need to change your plan, feel free to do so. Being flexible without giving up on your goals can keep them realistic.


Consider Seeking Professional Help

If you need help sticking to your financial goals or help to create a plan, consider seeking help from a certified financial planner.


By following these tips, you’ll be on your way to achieving your financial New Year’s resolutions and making the most of your money in the year ahead!
