The air is just getting cool, the leaves are just starting to fall, and trick or treaters are still weeks away, but in my mind this year is OVER. As in game, set, match. The final score is success 1, failure 0.
With my recent purchase of 8 shares of OHI, I have now smashed through my 2017 goal of $200 in future annual dividends, and the fat lady is not even warming up on 2017 yet.
In hindsight, I may have set this goal low, but I really had no idea what to expect. This is my first year with this strategy, so I wasn’t really sure how far I could push it. I set a goal and just went for it. It always amazes me how often we can push past our own boundaries.
My goal for next year was/is $365. I am not planning on having the mini windfalls that boosted me this year, so I may have an uphill battle. But on the other hand, is my goal too low again I wonder? I guess there is only one way to find out. Full speed ahead!
Why such an odd number for my goal? How did I calculate it? Well I was debating should I make my goal $350 or $400. Then, one day someone muttered the cliche “Another day, another dollar” at work. DONE! I hate that cliche, and there is nothing more I want to do but break that, even if it’s only in my mind. Every time I hear it, I will be reminded of this goal.
2018 will not beat me. As another (better) saying goes, “I love winning, but not as much as I hate losing.”
What do you think. Keep my plan for 2018 or alter it?
