Where are you going with your money?

Whatever your goal, you’ll need a plan to achieve it. “A goal without a plan is just a wish,” Antoine de Saint-Exupery, the French pilot best known as the author of “The Little Prince,” is often-credited with saying.

Here are 12 moves to make, whether you have a plan or need to make one.
