Keeping Those Resolutions

With goal setting on so many people’s minds this time of year, _Money Magazine_ recently reviewed the tried and true methods for goal accomplishment. First, make a plan. Write your goals down, break them into manageable parts, and put the list somewhere where you’ll see it on a regular basis–not in the drawer where last year’s resolutions have been gathering dust for the last 12 months. Second, automate. That goes for building savings (automatic deposit) and for paying bills on time (automatic payment). Last, have someone hold you accountable.

In fact, think of _one_ thing you could do in 2007 that would improve your financial situation. And then think of someone you know who’s already accomplished that goal and ask him or her to be your accountability partner.
