Getting your finances in order is no easy task, but the experts say, a plan with goals and targets can help.

A Gallup Survey shows that 80% of non-retirees with a plan say they feel more confident about achieving their goals. 

Experts say, start with the small stuff, instead of the big numbers -- like a 7 figure retirement account, or college tuition. They also say focus on the positives, like a growing 401-k or rising home value.

A few other suggestions from the experts; build up your emergency fund and cut back on spending, pay down your debt, and remember to save.
