Setting Goals for July 2009

Over the next two days I am going to focus on two of the main functions of this site that effect me personally; achieving goals and accumulating wealth.  Today I will be focusing on my short term goals for the month of July.

I strongly believe that discussing your goals with others will make you more accountable and work harder than if you kept those goals to yourself. For example, if I hadn’t told any of my friends about my budget I was starting back in January, I could easily have cheated and made excuses to myself internally. However, I made it known to all of my friends and family that I was working within a budget for 2009. While no one would ever have known if I bought something beyond the budget, I would have had to cringe when I told those friends I was staying on target even though it was a lie. This added layer of accountability has had a profound effect on my behavior. That is why I am going to announce my goals for July to my readers, in hopes that you all will keep me on track.

These goals aren’t that complicated. I only have one month to achieve each. However, these are things I want and need to do and just need that extra push to get me going.

So here they are, my July goals:

  • Set up my 401(k) at work (I know its blasphemy that I haven’t yet, but I don’t qualify for an employer match until July 2nd. Even though this will be done tomorrow it’s still a goal to achieve.)
  • Sell my shot glass collection (I already have a buyer, just need to buy packing materials, pack them and ship them – a lot of active barriers here.)
  • Sell at least 10 books on eBay or Amazon (actually sold, not just listed.)
  • Donate at least 25 books to Books for America (this requires me to lug books on the metro to work, and stop 1/3rd of my commute home to drop off books. I should mention that books are heavy, this will take several trips.)
  • Purge one piece of clothing (sell or donate) for every piece that I buy (I am going to Israel next month and need to pick up some things, but I don’t want to overrun my closet.)
  • Figure out what to do with my comics (I buy them to read, not to collect and since I have digital copies of all of them I want to purge these from my closet. Any ideas are welcome: comics for soldiers or something?)

There they are; my goals for July of 09. Obviously, July is a “purge stuff” month, but my primary goal is to accumulate wealth over a long period of time, not accumulate stuff.  I will feel a great relief when I achieve each of these. If you have any suggestions about my goals or have your own goals you want to make known, please leave a comment below.

    In the awesome scheme of things you actually secure a B+ for hard work. Where you actually lost me was on your facts. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more true at this point. Having said that, permit me tell you just what did do the job. The authoring is quite engaging which is most likely the reason why I am making the effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, whilst I can easily see a jumps in reason you make, I am not necessarily convinced of exactly how you seem to unite the ideas which inturn help to make the conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your issue however hope in the future you connect the dots much better.
