Goal Archieved!

Yesterday i completed one of my goals for year 2014. I reached market value above $30,000.
This is awesome! Achieving these goals is very important to me, it helps to have some sort of goals to complete on my way of my financial freedom. It also helps me to track my progress on my journey.

One of my goals that has yet not been completed is to earn dividend income of $1200 between Jan-Dec of 2014, I'm currently in a good position i have earned $948.81 so far and still got 4 months time to reach this goal. I hope i will!

I have also been trying to achieve the "lose weight" goal but i had huge setback on my exercise routine. because i was sick for like 1.5 weeks and did and couldn't do anything, stupid flu. But today could be my first day to enter my 5 km running path and complete this with honor. And hopefully tomorrow is a soccer day with friends.

My "Own 15 or more different stocks"  should not be to hard to complete since i currently have positions in 14 different companies. I actually had this completed earlier but i sold out on my Priceline group (PCLN) position, yeah the whopping 1 share position. I also have few positions that I'm not sure what to do with, Starbucks (SBUX), Nike Inc (NKE), Coloplast (COLO-B) but i will make another post or series of posts about my positions, so you can see where I'm going for in each position.

Made a poll (rightbar) where you can vote the company that you like the best, currently telecoms, so Vote it's free, interesting to see how it turns out!

Anyway have to head out and do some training. Cheers!

Have you reached any goals this years? Do you think setting goals is good?

  1. Congrats on reaching your goal. Though impressive, you have to realize that a more important goal is having a stable portfolio that will provide you with ever increasing dividend income. Portfolios rise and fall in a second at the whim of the market and one day you might achieve a high portfolio value and then it all comes crashing down. That's not necessarily a bad thing as long as you have solid dividend payers through good times and bad.

    1. Hey DivHut!
      I have to agree with you, good stable portfolio with increasing dividend income is important, that's what i'm currently trying to build. that $30k is just a marker for me that keeps me going forward.
      thanks for visiting my site! cheers

  2. ANHA - Congrats on reaching your goal of $30K. On to the next goal! :)

    By the way, I like your idea of a poll. I voted for T but it is a really close call between T and VZ. I don't think you can go wrong with either company as they both have a pretty consistent and high yielding dividend. Just don't expect huge dividend growth from these two.

    Wishing you continued success in your personal journey! AFFJ

    1. Hey AFFJ!
      Nice to see you here. It truly is a close call between those two. I did buy some more T recently, and i have VZ on my shopping list, not expecting any major increases but that high yield brings some steady cash flow to my portfolio.
      How about you? have you made some goals for yourself ?

      Thank you for stopping by!
