By the time spring rolls around, many of us have given up on our New Year’s resolutions—but it doesn’t have to be that way. Instead of waiting until next January to get on track, make it a point to renew your resolutions right now. Here’s how:

1. Get rid of the New Year’s resolution mindset.

For some reason, many people have the idea that you can’t resolve to make improvements unless it’s the beginning of a new year. While the first of the year is a good time to make new commitments and start fresh, the reality is that you can set goals at any time.

Don’t let the New Year’s resolution mindset hamper you. If you’ve gone off track, realize that you can start fresh tomorrow—or today. Make a commitment to improve your finances, or take other steps to improve, right now. You’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish and how good it can make you feel.

2. Make your goals meaningful.
