There are a lot of boxes you need to tick off in your financial life. While it's important to hit them all, that's not always realistic for every budget. However, this neat noughts and crosses game is a clever way to motivate you to get a few things done. Photo by Sharat Ganapati.
The board, which you can find at the source link below, has nine separate spaces for goals like knowing your net worth or paying off your personal vehicle. The most important goals are given higher priority spaces to demonstrate how essential they are (for example, the square for paying off credit card debt is dead centre). You're not going to change your financial life overnight with it, but it's a fun way to get a feel for how far behind you really are. Sure, you might not have met every single financial goal yet, but even if you're on your way there, you can still win this little game. And the little wins matter.
