2017 Goals – Go Big or Go Home – But Focus

In Goal Setting by Gen Y Finance Guy26 Comments

In any given year I usually have a dozen or so goals. But sometime during the middle of 2016 it dawned on me that maybe less is more. If I set less goals, I could shoot for a much bigger outcome. I could be more focused. Less really could be more. For 2017 I have several themes: Slow Down – Mrs. …

In Goal Setting by Gen Y Finance Guy9 Comments

The theme for November has been to focus on health and fitness. All of the financial goals have either been exceeded or are on autopilot to success through the end of the year. As I shared earlier in October, I placed a $1,000 bet with a co-worker, with the winner who loses the most weight winning. The bet was officially agreed …

We are officially down to the last 3 months of the year. This tends to be a very busy quarter for me on all fronts. With the exception of this year (which has been insane since it started), my busy season at work usually kicks in around mid-October and extends through January for annual business planning. Based on the past …

Well, it feels like I fell asleep on January 1st and woke up in September. Can you believe that 8 months are already gone? FOREVER. Like money, time can also be so very fleeting. The unfortunate truth is that by now, most people have already given up on their goals, and that makes me sad ( 🙁 ). In my opinion …

As I write this monthly goal check-in we are officially 214 days into 2016 (or ~59% complete). Most people started the year off strong with their New Year’s resolutions for 2016. Well, at least the 45% of people who actually set New Year’s resolutions (US based statistics). The low participation rate isn’t even the worst news, of those 45%, 1 in …

One… Two… Three… Four… Five…Holy crap! That’s right, we are approaching the half way point rather quickly. May was an absolutely nutty month at work, and the call of duty had me stepping up to the plate to put in many 90+ hour work weeks. We are in the middle of a HUGE deal at work and I have been helping lead …
