Progress towards my financial goals – Do you have a plan?

It seems this theme has swung back around. Time to look at personal finances, goals and strategy towards accomplishing those. I have read the book again, you should as well. This book seems to put many mysteries about how wealth is accumulated into perspective in a way simple folk can appreciate. Here is my first report about my progress:

Financial Progress Report: I am 52.97% towards my short term goal and 0.36% towards my long term goal. At this time!

I will updating this periodically and may insert tidbits about strategy, however, always being not too specific or detailed so as to keep my internal affairs private at the same time. I hope what I do provide is helpful…to someone. Be well.

  2. I’m reading The Book again: “Let them guide you away from the
    stringencies of a lean purse to that fuller, happier life a full purse makes possible.”. Need to make sure I didn’t miss anything and to solidify my 2nd Short Term Goal.

  3. Time to find ways that are inexpensive but rewarding to celebrate financial milestones. There are a few good blogs about this, that is why I am not going to write one:

    I am looking for my good ways to celebrate financial milestones and in between milestones (just went over certain amount on the way to) as well.

  4. Financial Progress Report: I am 57.21% towards my short term goal and 0.3861% towards my long term goal. Right now! Happy 2011!

  5. Financial Progress Report: I am 58.89% towards my short term goal and 0.3975% towards my long term goal. Right now! Happy 2011!

  6. Soon my First Short Term Goal will be passed. I have 2 secondary short term goals to use when the first one is used up. One of them is riskier then the other. They are both good investments. I find it more of a challenge to find good investments, it seems things get harder as one climbs the ladder!

  7. Financial Progress Report: I am 79.23% towards my short term goal and 1.3085% towards my long term goal. Right now!

  8. Financial Progress Report: I am 85.45% towards my short term goal and 1.3519% towards my long term goal. Right now!

  9. Financial Progress Report: I am 91.72% towards my short term goal and 1.3923% towards my long term goal. Right now! Now I have my Short Term Goal Number 2 in place. It has 2 parts, Short Term Goal 2a and Short Term Goal 2b. It just so happens I have already made progress towards both of them (STG2a 1.02% and STG2b 21.47%). At any rate those will be the next series for focus as I “climb my own ladder”.

  10. Financial Progress Report: I am 99.73% towards my short term goal and 1.4542% towards my long term goal. This was slowed down a bit due to taxes due to Federal and State localities (tax happens!). I am glad, however, that I am in a position to “lend” taxes due and payable to myself from my Goal Money as opposed to putting on a credit card or other means of financing (as I do not have immediate idle cash on hand to that amount other then investments and emergency funds).

  11. Financial Progress Report: I passed my Short Term Goal 1 back in May, 2011, now I added two more intermediary goals (Goal 2a and Goal 2b). As of today I am 45.05% towards Goal 2a and 43.98% towards Goal 2b and 2.2147% towards my initial Long Term Goal, please note that each of the Intermediary Short Term Goals (2a / 2b) increase the rate of progress towards the Long Term Goal as opposed to my initial Short Term Goal which was not investment based.

  12. Financial Progress Report: Today, July 1, 2014 I am 11.77% towards my initial Long Term Goal. I have not updated for quite a while, hard to believe 2 years and 2 months have gone by but they have! Short Term Goals have changed but they remain intact for the most part.
