Goals Update #18


Do you have goals and dreams for your future? Do you have them written down? Every week, I remind myself of my goals for the month to make sure that I’m on track for hitting them. Sometimes I’m way behind the eight ball, and other times I really feel like I have a good handle on them. Either way though, my site improves and my readers have a better experience from the improvements.

Goals for May, 2012

So it’s already May 13, and I figure that I’d better start focusing on my goals before the month escapes me! Let’s check out how I’m doing.

  1. House Project: Finish Upstairs and Main Level, Minus Trim – This one is almost laughable…. I don’t think I’ve made any progress whatsoever on the upstairs bedroom or bathroom. This is why I write these goals down though, because now I realize that I should probably get to work on a few things!
  2. Put eBook into a PDF Format, Build My Site for it, and Sell It! – This has been pretty stagnant as well. I know I have to do it, but life is just so busy!! Hopefully I’ll have a better report next week.
  3. Get That Jeep Sold and Make a Double Payment on the Mortgage – The jeep is almost sold! There are a couple of items that need to be addressed, but I have a couple of serious lookers so I fully expect to have sold the Jeep by next week. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Last week was completely crazy, so I feel like many of my goals were simply ignored, but this week should really be different. As far as I know, there shouldn’t be any interruptions to my typical work week. I can’t wait to let you all know what I’ve gotten done by next week.



My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.


  1. I try to make some progress toward my goals every day/week. Some weeks it will be less and other weeks will be more.

    • Yep. Sometimes it is pretty tough. But progress is progress!
