On this site, I frequently update my net worth. This is just as much for me as it is for any readers, as it allows me to look back and see how far I’ve come as well as provide encouragement as new milestones are reached.
Growing my net worth in and of itself is not necessarily the goal. My goal is to be able to accumulate sufficient assets that I never need to worry about depleting them as long as I live. I also don’t want to have to work forever. We are planning on an early retirement, and would begin living off of our investment income at that point. I have an idea of what level of net worth that requires and when I’d like to get there, and frequent tracking allows me to make sure I am staying on track and don’t find myself approaching retirement age and wondering where all my time and money went.
