We previously discussed the importance of celebrating success. What does that look like? When creating your budget, goals are included. If that part was skipped, go back and add them, seriously add goals so you know where your going, or at least the direction. Both short-term and long-term goals. Short-term goals are easier to reward, as they are short-term. Once completed, reward yourself. Rewards aren’t always going to be big-ticket items. It can be as small as a coffee from your favorite coffee place, maybe your favorite book (BTW I know it is my Budgeting Book)! Long-term goals are different due to length of time. To keep motivated, break up those long-term goals with milestones. For example, Student Load debt. Let’s say you owe $50,000. Celebrate when you pay off the first $1,000, then $5,000 and so on until that puppy is gone!
