Start by writing down all of your short-term (1-2 years) and long-term (5+ years) financial goals.
Keep in mind that these should be realistic and achievable within the timeframe set out. For example, if you want to save up for a house in 5 years, then make sure that goal is something you can actually accomplish given your current salary and expenses.
Once you have a list of goals written down, create an action plan with specific steps that will help lead you towards achieving those targets.
This could include things like creating a budget, eliminating unnecessary expenses, or automating savings contributions each month.
Consider checking out a software for budgeting or create a spreadsheet to track your progress throughout the year.
Finally, review your progress regularly so that you can adjust as needed if something isn’t working out as planned.
