Reach 375k in market value for my DG portfolio
This one will be tough if the markets have a correction. I won’t mind though because I care more about dividend income.
Reach $14000 in forward 12-month dividends
This mean increasing my forward dividends by another $5500 annually. This will be tough.
Earn $5000 in options premiums
Very doable if the markets keep going up. However, it will be much harder if the market corrects as I’ll get assigned shares.
Earn $10000 in dividend income
This is double my 2013 goal. Again, very challenging but I think I will make this one.
Break $1500/mo in forward dividend + rental income
If I add a third rental then this one shouldn’t be too difficult.
Buy a third rental property
This will require a significant amount of cash as a down payment and will take some planning.
Increase net worth to 800k (596k to start the year)
At current income levels this should be achievable. The market could throw a wrench in this one though.
Produce 12mwh (12,000kwh) of electricity from solar
This is enough to cover more than half my usage from last year
Bring my total electric usage down to 17,500kwh (previously 19,233kwh for 2013)
Using LED bulbs, lighting timers and conservation, I will attempt this goal.
Reach 300k Pageviews
This one could prove difficult as this is triple my current pageviews.
Hit 25k Pageviews/month
Again this is difficult and about double my current views.
Finish the Yakezie challenge
I’m starting this week and hope to drop my Alexa ranking under 200,000 from 450k now.
I’ve also included how well I did in 2013. I met all goals but one which I consider pretty darn good. The goal I missed was a little out of my control as interested rates did not keep dropping, instead they marched back upwards.
