A goal is “something that you are trying to do or achieve,” according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. What are you working towards? What are you trying to achieve? Those simple questions need to be asked. If you’re married, then it should be asked to you and your spouse. Make sure you’re on the same page and know what’s important to one another.
Here are a few questions you can ask you and your significant other to get the ball rolling:
When do you see yourself retiring?
Do you want to retire debt-free (and you should want that!)?
Do you want to help our children and grandchildren with their college expenses?
Am I concerned about how much money we’ll have in retirement?
Answering these quick questions and anything else that comes to mind can really help narrow down your goal. Also, it’s okay to have more than one goal to be working towards. You just have to set a priority and get to work.
If you know what you’re working towards or what you’re trying to achieve it will make everything much easier. Knowing that you would like to retire at the age of 60 means you will have to get started earlier in life saving for retirement. But by talking about your goals now, there is time to get them done.
