Now that I've entered my most recent paycheck into Quicken and gotten another security deposit returned, I feel that I can officially say my net worth is over $300,000. Over by, like, a hundred dollars. Whoo-hoo!

Congratulations! I'm newish to your blog and to all things financial, and was just wondering how you set your goal for 1/1/07? What did you base it on?

I tried to come up with a goal by estimating how much money I save out of each paycheck, how much I've earned from investments over the last few years, and what % my net worth has increased by during the last couple of years. I also did a sort of cash-flow analysis of how much money I'd be paying out later in the year for the condo I'm buying, and value of the condo once it's mine. So it was a rough estimate but kind of an educated guess.
