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.
