It is the end of the month and time once again for my monthly goal review.
My first goal is to increase my passive income. I made slight progress on this. I purchased another dividend paying stock. I’d still like to buy a rental property if I can find a good deal. Since I’ll be hiking most of August I’m unlikely to do anything towards this goal for the month.
My second goal is to lose 30 pounds. I went backwards on this one. My weight has now gone up to 225 pounds which is the most I have ever weighed. I’m hoping to lose a lot of this weight on the hike but having all this extra weight will make hiking a lot harder. At the end of August I should have some good progress on this goal.
My last goal was to increase my RSS subscriber count to 500. I made progress on that goal this month. I hit a high of 430 subscribers during the month and I am now consistently over 400. This is without doing anything special to promote this site. Hitting 500 subscribers still seems like a reasonable goal and I will do some promotion later this year to help reach that number.
I met two out of my three goals this month. For August the only goal I really want to make progress on is losing weight. If I manage to lose a significant amount of weight and just maintain on my other goals I will consider that a successful month.
