For 31 consecutive months I have dutifully compiled a Monthly Net Worth for your viewing pleasure.
Through rain and shine, but alas I have skipped out on the August 2019 update.
Oh, I still ran the numbers, but the outcome was so utterly anti-climactic that I did not bother to put the numbers into my beloved excel graphs.
Here goes the raw data;
Total Assets; $2,317,675 down – $ 4,255 for the month
Total Liabilities; $ 388,685 down – $ 1,071 for the month
Total Net Worth; $ 1,929,990 down – $ 3,184 for August
I still go through the ups and downs of my net worth for my own edification, but I must admit that I have lost some drive to stay on top of this blog.
My best hope lies in that FinCon lies right around the corner and will likely spur me back into action.
In the end, I blame 3 distinct things for my lack of will power.
- Horrible days in the market make me not want to count my money. Petty, surely, but a reality none the less.
- My family, including wife, are all currently playing Clash of Clans together. Lame, surely, but gaming with your spouse and children does not happen everyday and I for one plan to milk this cow for all it’s worth.
- The secret and probably fatal cause. I am a serial obsessor. I delve very deep into some side interest and 6 months later come back to the surface and move on to the next shiny object. This blog has lasted for over 2 years so I am hoping to push through this energy quagmire, but I wanted to give fair warning. We might be in trouble.
