As you know, every year is time for refreshed goals. It’s like a refresh on your life. Whatever you didn’t get to accomplish the previous year, you can work on this year. You can also set new goals or reimagine your life. If you know me, I always create a yearly plan for what’s to come financially in my life. When it comes to the new year, new goals, find out how I did last year and what Im planning for this year.
How Did I Do Last Year?
Last year I slacked on many of my goals. When it came to saving and investing, I did well. I managed to keep my savings and investments automated. I added 1% to my 401k monthly investment. My savings goals increased as well as my wealth and credit score. I was not successful in several areas to include making any land or home purchases.
Goals For The New Year
I sat down a few days ago and tweaked my yearly plan. Instead of acquiring land, I made it my goal to find a home or condo to purchase with the hopes of turning it into an Airbnb. I also would like to up my 401k account by at least another 1% per check. Along with that, I want to keep automating my savings and pay an additional $500 a month between my car and home principal payments.
What I Will Do Diffrent
Last year I did not check with my plan regularly. I also did not have a clear path. This year I will set tight deadlines. I will be sure to check in with my plan quarterly to check off accomplishments and update them as needed. I will also be sure to keep a positive attitude.
What goals have you set for yourself and how do you hope to achieve them? Lets us know in the comment section below.
