Hello guys! As I alluded to in my last post, we are now in the final quarter of 2017. Can you believe it? It felt like just a few weeks ago we were ringing in the new year, but I guess time flies.
With that said, now is a great time to re-evaluate your goals for the year and see what you can accomplish in these last three months. You know, those goals that you made back in January? Yup, those.
For some of you, you may have completely forgotten about them. For others, you might have tried and given up, and for few, you might still be working away at them, but wherever you are, pick at least one (maybe more if you’re ambitious) and create a game plan to knock them out.
If you’ve had problems meeting your goals this year, that’s okay. The whole year doesn’t have to be a bust, there is still a lot of time left. Also, it’s not a crime to completely re-evaluate and create brand new goals for the end of the year. Things change, you change, and your goals are allowed to change too.
Around this time of year, we switch into holiday mode, or at least I do, where most everything I do revolves around holiday festivities, events, and outings, but do take some time to schedule out how you’re going to buckle down and get to work.
Now I don’t believe it would be fair to ask this of you if I didn’t do the same to myself. So as of right now, my goal for the rest of the year is to be smarter with my money, hence the last post about No-Spend October. While that is a great goal, it’s not incredibly tangible or S.M.A.R.T. (S.M.A.R.T. stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound). So let’s make a deal, you make a S.M.A.R.T goal to finish off the year and I will too.
Below is a printable that can help you figure out what your major goal should be for the last quarter of the year and how to make it S.M.A.R.T.

Let’s finish the year strong!
