The key to creating achievable resolutions is to set goals that have a clear definition of success; then, create an action plan to achieve them.
Houston, TX (Vocus) January 6, 2010
Saving more money, reducing debt, managing money better, and eliminating credit card use are some of the most popular financial resolutions people are setting in the new year according to a recent survey conducted by Money Management International (MMI). Fifty-six percent of those surveyed, however, say they do not plan to set any financial goals in 2010. Whether deterred by uncontrollable forces (like the economy and job loss) or just fear of lacking the self-discipline to following through, MMI’s new eBook aims at helping consumers start the new year off right by setting and keeping financial resolutions that not only improve their finances, but also improve their lives.
“The new year is an opportune time to set financial resolutions because it is a time of renewal and new beginnings,” said Cate Williams, vice president of financial literacy for MMI. “The key to creating achievable resolutions is to set goals that have a clear definition of success; then, create an action plan to achieve them.”

- Ten financial resolutions worth keeping
