365 Days To Wealth

Christmas has just been and gone and it was great fun. I had a great time hanging out with family and meeting up with friends and exchanging gifts. One of the gifts I got from my wife was a 365 day journal. It is from my favourite stationary store (Kikki K). Instead of having dates each page simply has a number, from 1 all the way through to 365. One page for every day of the year.

As new years is approaching it is one of those times to think about the year ahead and ponder all the things you want to achieve. In 2010 we have 365 days. We can either use those days to make our lives better, or use them to make them worse. We can use those days to make ourselves richer, or use those days to make ourselves poorer.

I am a big fan of new years resolutions. I am a huge fan of setting huge goals that you know are almost impossible to achieve. I am a fan of the idea that you can start a fresh in the new year and create your life exactly how you want it.

The 365 Journal gave me the idea of doing “365 Days To Wealth” in 2010. The resolution is to do something everyday to move you towards becoming wealthy. That might be brainstorming business ideas, it might be doing some work for a friend and earning an extra couple of bucks to pay off that debt, it might be buying a property, it might be creating a product, it might be reading a finance book. The goal is that everyday you do at least one thing that will help you become wealthy.

So it is my resolution to document what I have done each day in moving towards becoming wealthy. I was going to document it in my journal but I really want to use it as my baby book. So instead I plan on documenting it on this blog.

I am finished with my days of trying to make money from blogging. That is painstakingly slow and I don’t have the willpower (or the creativity) to become successful in blogging. I am going to document this for my own personal reference. If other people happen to find it intriguing then so be it. If not, then I will have benefited from it anyway.

My financial goals for 2010 are:

My 365 days to wealth will revolve around trying to make these 3 things happen. It will be an interesting journey for me and I am looking forward to it. I spend everyday thinking about finances anyway, so I may as well try to document it so that I can look back in years to come and see exactly where I was at (and how much of an idiot I was).
