I’ve been lagging in regular updates and I’m hoping that 2020 will resolve that (starting February I promise! :)). Without further delay, here are my awesome results for December 2019:
A grand total of €128.55 provided me with my second best result since starting this DGI journey. Here are my visuals, next month results will start my fourth year! 🙂
December 2018: €40,78.
December 2019: €128,55.
These results present a growth of about 215%, still going strong with the triple digit growth. Granted, in this stage of accumulation this is fairly easy attained. As always my results are converted from their base currency to euro and are post-tax.
So what were my goals for 2019?
- Receive €650,- in dividends: Nailed it! With a total of €1007,29 I can really say I smashed this one. I need to to set more ambitious goals!
- Increase dividend portfolio to €28.500: I almost crossed the €40k mark at the end of 2019. I’ll probably remove such a goal for 2020 as total worth is not what is most important.
- Increase forward income to €1000: My current forward income stands at €1230 so made tremendous progress in this department (this is in euros en post-tax). I’ll be sure to make a buy report of my last quarter since I still made my monthly buys. The snow ball is running faster since I’ll average an additional €100 in dividens a month to invest back onto my portfolio.
- Write a healthy amout of 40 blogposts: Thats a definite no, I need to up my game providing my wok-life balance allows it..
- Spend less time with my phone: I defintely spent less on my phone but I did not hold my self to the 30 minute limit. I need to do better in 2020.
- Spend more time with my family: Score! This year was a lot better than the year before even with two kids. We spent lots of days together and I make it a priority above all else (especially work!).
- Read 12 self-improvement books: I’ve read a lot again this year, next year I’ll keep track more on which books so I can share them with you.
- Exercise 2-3 times a week: I’ll give myself a pass for this one. I think I kept this up the majority of the year except when I was sick a few times. So that’s a pass 🙂
There you have it, lots of succes but also room for improvement, including the goal setting process! My goals for 2020 will be for a future post, so stay tuned.
