I love setting goals! They give me something to work hard towards. A big goal that John David and I have is to pay off our home in 15 years instead of 30 (and we’d love to pay it off even sooner but 15 is the realistic goal now!)
In order to reach the big goal, we have to make an extra principal payment of $215 per month, which we are able to do most months.
I’m adding a smaller goal that will help us achieve the big goal even faster: sell $215 worth of our unwanted stuff in the next 6 months!
That doesn’t seem like much, only about $35 a month but it’s $215 off of our mortgage as well as less stuff in our home!
I’ve started off on a good foot, I made 2 eBay sales already! That’s just a small step but I’m taking it one item at a time!
I’ll share our progress on “The $215 Goal,” each month. Hopefully by the end of the year I’ll be able to say we’ve accomplished it!
Do you set challenging goals?
