Goals for 2015

Once again another year has come and gone but unlike previous years, 2014 was full of stuff. I bought a house in the summer, traveled to another province for work and vacationed in London, England. I’m hoping that 2015 will be eventful as well.

Like most people, I usually set out to make a new year’s resolution but I find that by the second week or so, I’ve broken or lost interested. This year, I will set myself goals and I plan on meeting them. So here goes:

  • Save $10,000
  • Lower mortage by $10,000
  • Do a better job at budgetting

Yes, 2015 will be the year when I will focus harder on my financials. I’ve opened up more RRSP accounts so I can save more of my money. I’ve opened up a Questrade account and started investing. I plan on putting more of my money away so I can reach financial independence. I’ve been following a few personal finance bloggers and they’ve inspired me to save. Well, they’ve inspired to save in the past but I just never got around to doing it. But this year, that’s going to change. I’ve also noticed that I’ve been spending a lot of time in /r/PersonalFinanceCanada.

The goals that I’ve set out for myself are reasonable and I believe that I’ve set them low enough that I will achieve them by the end of the year. So here goes!
