When Your Savings Goals Hit a Roadblock & Leave You On Empty
Our 2016 Savings Goals Update
2016 has certainly been another year full of ups and downs, twists and turns, both in our home and businesses, but I am excited to say we survived!
For the first time ever, I decided to set some goals (not resolutions) for 2016, and I even left my comfort zone and shared them with you here.
I must confess that we fell short on many of those goals, especially our savings goals, but I have yet to beat myself up for it because they are GOALS not requirements, not deadlines and not commitments. Sometimes GOALS have to change or undergo some alterations due to physical, financial or emotional challenges, as Benjamin Mays says, “The tragedy of life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having NO goals to reach.”
Heaven knows our goals have made some enormous U-turns in the past year. The biggest and most obvious being the original goal of saving $5,000-$10,000 by the end of 2016.
