Aaand we’re in the home stretch! May was the 11th month of my net worth challenge – only 30 more days to go!
I’m happy to report that I have continued to make progress towards my goals. My original goal was to increase my overall net worth by 46%, and miraculously I have thus far increased my net worth by 65%! There is no better feeling than exceeding your own expectations.
The area that I still need to work on is my non-retirement investments. I’ve increased that category by 244% (!) this year, but I’m still shy of my goal of 271%. It is possible that I will reach my goal in the next 30 days, thanks in part to June being one of those glorious three-paycheck months. Even if i don’t meet that particular aspect of my goal, I’ll still be really pleased with my progress.
As I reach the end of this particular goal, I’m starting to think about where I go next. While it has been great to have a monetary goal to work towards, I feel like I was more motivated when I was saving for something more concrete, such as my condo. I don’t have any concrete financial goals for the next few years, but maybe I need to create some.
What is keeping you motivated as your near your goals? What motivates you to save?
