Chuck Jaffe: Ditch your New Year’s resolutions and set 3 realistic money goals for 2017

New Year’s resolutions, plans, goals, declarations and intentions — I’ve tried them all.

What they have in common is that they work, right up to the point when they don’t. Which is why I long ago gave up on resolutions, feeling that a single misstep saps courage and wipes out willpower.

Instead, I began goal-setting — making annual targets that were achievable over the course of 12 months, even if I faltered and my path was not straight and consistent.

In 2015, however, I made things infinitely more simple, especially when it came to my financial resolve for the year ahead.
