Back in January 2015, I created some financial goals as a countdown to retirement. The goals were pretty aggressive; it’s time to see if I have lived up to my plan.
It is one thing to create a plan, and another to follow through with the plan. On January 1, I had 551 days until I leave my full time job. Today, it is closer to 380, with only 230 work days left, or 54 weeks. That is only 60% work days, as I have some vacation and holidays coming. And it doesn’t count sick days. But who is counting…?
As the days draw closer to the last day of full time work, and the last days of getting a steady paycheck, I check my retirement plans very often. Way more often than needed. Does a retirement plan need to be checked every hour? I sometimes think it needs to be checked even more often, especially when the market is soaring.
Here is how I have progressed.
