And the last thing that has to be done at begging of year is setting year new y2018 goals. There is no better way to set new goals is to have a look at the old ones. So lets look again at our y2017 goals.

  1. Have a baby – Failed
  2. Save 15% of income. (Actual 9%) – Failed
  3. Have Total investment value 25 kEUR:  Completed
  4. Visit a new country Completed (Belgium & Croatia)
  5. Repair kitchen balcony. Completed
  6. Run 300 km. (Actual 200 km) – Failed
  7. Run a half-marathon 21 km. Completed (2:32)

I think it is a good challenge to take the failed ones and have them included into new year goals as well. So here we have 3 goals for Y2018:

  1. Have a baby
  2. Save 15% of income.
  3. Run 300 km.

If I look at it these are the core goals. Having less goals is also a good thing as you can concentrate what is most important. If you look there is no reason to have investment goals such as accumulate investment value or dividend income as they are directly related to saving rate. The more you save, the more you invest, the more you get passive income. 3rd goal is sport related. I was thinking about expanding them like having workouts, cold showers and meditation at the morning, but keeping only the running goal looks good as well. I think these 3 goals fits very nicely SMART goal methodology. They are surely specif and measurable. I think it is also quite ambitious as these are the goals that we failed last year. There is no better way to fix failed goals then to have them completed 🙂 Realistic – definitely. So here we are with our new year, only 3, but most important goals.
