3 years to be exact. Much have happened in these 3 years by the way. I had three job changes, proposed to my partner, gotten my BTO flat, etc.
Can't wait for it to be ready by 2017:D
All these events are significant chapters of my life and some of these events have offered painful life lessons due to my naivety. Hopefully, I will have the time to blog about these events retrospectively in the near future while my memories are fresh.
Coming back to the topic, let's firstly start off with the review of my goals as of December 2014.
In 2012, I stated that my goals were as follows:
- Sorting out my insurance coverage.
- Increase monthly dividend payout to $50.
- Achieve honors grades for my part time studies.
- Gain significant in-depth knowledge on Fundamental Analysis.
1) Sorted out my insurance coverage in February 2012. Explained in detailed HERE.
2) My monthly dividend payout has hit $101.87 as of end 2014. Not very commendable if you ask me. Even though I managed to exceed my initial target of $50 monthly, it has taken me three years to hit this amount. That is a less than 38% increase annually! Hardly sufficient to be considered a "passive income", much less feed a peon like me!
3) Two words to describe. EPIC FAIL. I failed two of the modules and was caught for plagiarism for one of my assignments. Received a warning letter from the school to boot. So much for aiming to achieve honors for my degree =_=". Guess this is an inherent characteristic of mine, always being uninterested in school. With such set-backs, I will never be able to achieve my goal of getting honors grading for my current course.
4) This goal can neither be quantified nor measured. I am sure I have gained some considerable investment knowledge this past three years. What I cannot be sure of, is that this knowledge can be considered significant enough. This is lousy goal setting and I will revised it for the upcoming goals setting for 2015.
Now that the review of my 2012 goals completed, lets move on to my goals for 2015.
GOALS for 2015
- Increase monthly dividends income to $150
- Get through my remaining semesters of my studies without further failures.
- Posting at least two entries on this blogblog
- Get to know at least two other people with similar interest in financial literacy.
- Career advancement in my regular job (gets promoted to the next level).
With this, I have completed my goals setting and review.
