Left to Right: Christopher L. Jorgensen & Spank the Monkey
Here's my ask (to noun a verb):
Take a look at your finances today. Everything. Write it down. Don't go by your gut, do this objectively. Go check out your 401(k), your savings, your income, your ROTH, your brokerage account, your home equity; whatever you count as part of your net worth.
If you have car loans, credit card debt, payday loans, whatever, write those down as well. Subtract them from above.
Come up with what you dispassionately view as "how you’re doing."
Now, revisit this in November, and again in 2020.
