Here is my financial goals update for Q1. So far at the end of Q1, I am up 13% so potentially on target for the year!

It’s the New Year and there is a lot of talk about setting resolutions as well as succeeding with those resolutions. We even wrote a post about sticking to your resolutions. Today though I want to dig a little deeper and talk about how to achieve your goals. Not just for this year, but for all of your goals in life.
What is your New Year's resolution?It is a general theme that should help you remember what the whole thing is about, and you can include several sub-goals within them. For 2014, my two words are Me and the World.
It’s become a yearly ritual for many: Set ambitious goals for the New Year, tackle them enthusiastically for a few weeks, and then give up on them completely by March. If you’re ready to break the cycle, it helps to understand why you fail, and what you can do to create success in your life.
It's that time of year for us to set goals in the Frugal Rules home. It's more of the same this year with focus on growing our business for the long run.
So you’ve made some New Years resolutions, and this year you plan to actually keep them past January 10. But what’s so different this year from all the other years? There will still be temptations. There will still be days when you lack the time. There will still be lapses of will power.
This time of year is always fun. Holiday season brings families together, we have parties, and celebrate the relationships we’ve built throughout life. It’s my favorite time of the year. Then, the book turns a page and BAM…we find ourselves smack dab in the midst of a new year. In 2 days, we’ll be enjoying the first day of the year 2014. We all know that with a new year comes new year’s resolutions.
2013 was such a life changing year for me that it’s almost bittersweet to see it end. First of all, I survived one full year of blogging and secondly, I think this new aggressive-debt-repaying-frugalista-wannabe-blogger GMD is here to stay. ;)
When I talk to people about money and finance, they often ask me - Where do I start? What do I need to do to put myself on the right track? I always reply with a question and ask them if they have a set of clearly defined financial goals and whether or not their finances are organized.
