It's a new year, and a great time to set some good financial goals. You should set small realistic goals to help you to achieve your larger goals. You may want to start with a large goal such as buying a house or retiring early and then look at the things you will need to do to reach that larger goal. You should set your smaller goals on those things rather than a broader less specific goal. Set up a support system to make it easier to reach your financial goals. It is important to measure your progress periodically throughout the year.
