I lost a lot of steam in my pursuit of completing goals towards the end of the year due to life changes which resulted in more failed goals than usual. I think in 2014, I’ll trim my list of goals down and relax more.
Save $1,000 in the Gift Fund for my parents. Done! I focused on this financial goal first since it was the smallest goal. I put some of my Christmas gift money and a third of my tax refund into this account.
Make $3,000 outside from full-time job income. $934.04. 31% done. I’ve had this goal for three years now and have never achieved it. I’m dropping this in 2014. FAIL
Pay down $4,500 in principal of student loans. I’ve actually paid 1081 dollars over my goal. I threw all I had extra into this goal.
Open up a Roth IRA account with a new bank and deposit $2,000. 500/2000. FAIL
Try 10 more Vietnamese recipes. 7/10. I’ve learned one new Vietnamese dish since the last progress report. This is the third year I’ve had this goal so I now know how to make a grand total of 27 recipes. FAIL
Dish 6: Vietnamese Crepes
Complete 10 sewing learning projects. 10/10. My last sewing project was my favorite sewing project.
