During my 20’s it was easy to live in the present, only ever thinking of retirement as being a far-off fuzzy “what if” scenario.
My goals from last year to this year haven’t changed much. Our focus this year is to buy a house, so with that in mind, saving is the top priority.
The end of the year is drawing near and my quarterly goals systems has really worked quite well this year. Part of that success is due to having a steady stream of income, and part of the success is due to making my goals obtainable and very timely.
The first half of the year I did really well meeting my financial goals. I was able to pay down my consumer debt and increase my savings as well as my investment accounts.
