- Goal 1: "I earn $60,000 per year by December 2011." I now have a yearly income of about $70,000, so I definitely reached this goal.
- Goal 2: "I save 40 percent of my net income in 2011". I actually saved 75 percent of my net income in 2011. I did this by keeping the expenses at a minimum and continuing my "student lifestyle" after I started working full time in August.
- Goal 3: "I have a positive net worth by December 2011". I reached a positive net worth in August 2011, 4 months before the deadline. I then made a new goal to reach $15,000 before the end of 2011, which I also accomplished.
