Rather than set a few mini goals for July (& August) I thought a to-do list would be simpler. Tasks, not goal’s, is the theme for the next two months!
This is more of a ‘Moving House To-Do List’, but having it here on the blog will help me to stay organised!
Monthly goal setting used to be a habit for me, but for some reason this year I’ve been very inconsistent with it. It’s probably got something to do with shutting down Move to Portugal, where I would always post my monthly mini goals, and then making the decision to sell our house – selling up changes nearly all of our long-term financial goals.
Things are changing (all good I might add), but we still have a long way to go to secure our financial future and I don’t want to take my foot off the gas. Setting goals, long-term and/or short-term, leads to progress, and so I need to get back to setting them……..consistently!
As a side note I also need to revisit my annual goals as they seem to have gone by the wayside in the last few weeks!
May Mini Goals:
Ok that’s it! Do you set monthly goals?
I’m wrapping up our 2013 goals in order to clear the decks for our 2014 budget!
Financial Goals for 2013: (Goals updated in August)
Ongoing Net Worth Goal: Increase NW to £125K in 2013
We sneaked in!
We don’t include pension savings in our NW as we both have (now frozen) Final Salary Pensions. However following a recent pension change, we now have online access to my husbands (new) scheme and will be including this in our NW going forward.
2012-2013 increase: £14,539
Overall it’s been a very good year for our finances and we’re very grateful. Thank you for your continued support xoxo
