The real benefit of having goals, both aspirational goals and SMART goals, is progress.
It’s about making progress toward a better you and toward a bigger and brighter financial future for you, your family, and your company.
When you envision what would make you happy, you begin to see more clearly what you want to do and have. You begin thinking directionally about the progress and improvement you would like to experience in your life and work.
