By breaking everything down into smaller little bits, you'll be able to do next to nothing -- all while achieving great things. But first! You need to get your head in the right place.

Take a few minutes to clear out any mental cobwebs you've got cluttering your mind. What really bothers you about your finances? Too much debt? Behind on your bills? Nothing in savings? Once you've clearly identified your problem areas, you can start to work towards repairing them.

What are your goals for this year? Would you like to save up a down payment for a house? Pay off a credit card bill that's been nagging at you? Buy a new car? Figure out what you're working towards and you've already begun the first step. If you have a partner, check in with them to make sure you're on the same page.

With your mind right, you'll be able to get your pockets right.
