Want to pay off your car loan, go on vacation, or build an emergency savings fund?
To reach your goals, you need to start with a specific destination. Financial SMART Goals will help you build a roadmap to achieve your dreams.
Ask yourself the questions who, what, where, when and why to make your goals more specific.
Let’s use the example, I want to save money. What are you saving for? How much do you want to save?
I will save AED 6,000 for an emergency fund is a specific goal.
I will save AED 6,000 for an emergency fund is measurable because you will know if and when you reach AED 6,000 in savings.
Making realistic goals sets you up for success. Make your goal achievable by factoring in your income and expenses.
You might want to save AED 1 million for an emergency fund, but if you have other financial obligations, this might not be achievable.
Saving AED 6,000 for an emergency fund might work for you or you may need to raise or lower your savings goal depending on your financial situation.
Align your goal with your values and current needs to make it more likely that you will continue working towards your goal.
If you don’t have an emergency fund already, savings towards one will help increase your financial stability.
Clearly state when you want to achieve your goal.
I will save AED 6,000 for an emergency fund in 12 months is a time-bound goal.
Now that we have all the elements of our SMART we can plan on how to reach our goal.
For example: I will save AED 500 per month for my emergency savings fund for the next 12 months.
