The below is the framework of things I wanted to focus on during 2017. More details on each and where I stood as of September 2017 can be found here.
2017 Year in Review
The year started very rough but ended on a very high note! Lots of progress on the health front, most improve category for sure, especially relating to mental health, hooray!
I am very pleased with the focus on the most important relationships in my life. In addition, 2017 was an incredible year for our minimalism journey. We also hit a ton of bucket and travel list items!
Professionally, I am doing really well, though promotions may come slower than anticipated. I am not too worried, I enjoy what I do and while more money would be nice, I made my FIRE plan assuming I would never get more money again.
Financial goals went beyond expectations, passing both the asset goal AND stretch goal. Check out more details here! Woo hoo!
Finally, on the wants category, I was able to get all the tattoos I have wanted for years AND, because our car died, we were able to get the electric car in 2017.
The one item that was not accomplished was probably the easiest one – renting my fun dream car for a weekend. It is a convertible and I got lazy, and I guess I don’t want it that bad as I kept putting it off. The goal has been moved to 2018, see how I go.
For 2018, I evolved my goals a little bit more, making them more specific for the specific year. Let’s keep the momentum going!
How about you? How was your year in review overall?
