What is the point of shooting if there is no target to aim at?  So I have setup some goals for myself to become financial independent. And this blog is my written account of this journey.

I set new goals at the beginning of each year and update them whenever these goals are achieved. So I will update this page periodically as new goals become present and old goals are attained.

      Hello DD,
      At this moment I don’t have a overall plan (including goals) laid out for the coming 15 years.
