Decide exactly what you want to do and when.

Use action words.

Set a deadline.

I want to save $500 for driving school this summer


How will you measure success along the way?

How will you know you've achieved the goal?

I will save $50 from every check during winter break.


Is this something you can achieve with all of your resources? Is this within your control?

I can do this if I use my monthly gift card instead of cash.


Is this goal related to your overall mission. Is this something you really need or desire?

If I get my license, when I'm ready I can save for a car.


Create a timeline of when you will achieve the goal. A goal without a plan is just a dream.

This is enough time  so I won't be stressed.
