2019 is off and running, and it’s already February. Don’t let that stop you from making your financial health a priority for 2019. You can do it!
In January, 2019, AARP published findings from a survey that showed that, when people made a commitment to putting money towards retirement in 2018, they overwhelmingly followed through. Among those who set a retirement savings goal in 2018, 84% saved at least some money for retirement. That’s great! The problem is that only 40% of respondents set a goal. Yikes! And, of the 60 percent who didn’t set a retirement savings goal, a concerning 40 percent saved nothing for retirement. That’s definitely not so great!
What’s the lesson here? Setting a goal is important! It doesn’t necessarily matter what the goal is … save money, track finances, make a budget, lower debt … any of them will work. The bottom line … setting a specific goal will make you more likely to achieve it.
So, let’s get going! Set a financial goal for 2019 and work towards it. Your financial health will thank you for it.
