Believe it or not, 2009 is just around the corner. So I thought I would take a little time and take another look at the list of goals I had for 2008. If you missed it, check out my goal list from a few months back.
After crossing off a lot of the goals, I still had four remaining. Luckily, I have since crossed some of them off. Here are some details:
Give More Back
I wanted to find a way to give more back and help people out. I managed to do this by growing a mustache for a month. I helped over a thousand students here in Phoenix and it felt great.
Work For Myself
Since I last wrote about my goals, I have managed to take the plunge and quit the office job I hated. I have not looked back since and have been working as hard as I can to make a living on my own. Through blogging and freelance work I have managed to make it so far.
Sell My Car
I had my car listed for 4 months without many responses, until someone emailed me last week. That person then decided to purchase the car and took it off my hands on Saturday. This was a huge stepping stone for me and am so glad I no longer have any car payments are car insurance to worry about. Now it’s time to adjust to not having a vehicle…
Be 100% Debt Free
This is the only goal left. I have not yet hit the 100% debt free mark, but selling the car and paying of the car loan was a huge step. That made up more than 70% of my debt that I was trying to pay off. Now it’s just a matter of making some extra money and paying off my student loan and a little bit of credit card debt. It’s just a matter of time before I hit the 100% debt free mark.
So there is a last look my goals for 2008. It was a great year and I managed to do almost everything I wanted to. Did you accomplish the things you wanted to this year?
