What are your 2018 goals and how are you being held accountable?

4 Replies

The new year is almost here and it is time to get purposeful about outlining what you want to accomplish in 2018. I want to challenge everyone in the Bigger Pockets community to take time to write down your goals and find a way to stay accountable in the coming year. In 2017 I saw the power of writing down and reviewing my goals on a weekly basis. My only regret in 2017 is that I did not dream big enough.  In 2018 I want to push harder, grow more, and dream bigger! 

Would love to share a few of my business and personal goals for 2018 and ask the BP community to do the same! 

1. Add 10 rental units to my portfolio and increase my yearly passive income by $50,000.
2. Maintain a vegan diet two days per week and drop my body fat below 10%.
3. Grow all of my businesses by 30% or more. 
4. Visit family and friends a minimum of 1 time each month. 
5. Come from a place of contribution and raise/donate $100,000 for causes I believe in.
6. Launch a full service investment team in Kansas City, MO.

To accomplish any goal you must first see it in your minds eye and believe you can accomplish it. Writing it down and sharing it with others is a powerful step. 

Looking forward to seeing what other members of this tribe have planned for 2018!

Happy Holidays All!

@Benjamin Riehle great post! Two days ago I drew up my new 6 month, one year, and 4-year goals for 2018. So vital people do this, look at them every day, rewrite them every day and have a plan of action to make each come to fruition. 

Thank you @Benjamin Riehle for this post. Here are my goals:

1) Grow my tax practice my 20%

2) Read 18 books in '18

3) Cardio 3x/week

4) Lift 3x/week

5) Buy first multi family

6) Caribbean vacation with the family for our 20th

7) Be a regular contributor on BP

8) Sleep 7 hours/night

Merry Christmas!

@Bob Langworthy Love these goals, thanks for sharing!

Do you have any of the books picked out? Always looking for recommendations of new books. 

How is the R/E market in Main? What cap rates are you guys seeing?

Merry Christmas

@Benjamin Riehle I just upgraded my BP account to Pro level and added the audio/digital book package. That's 8 of them. I'll be reading some Simon Sinek, Gary V, Seth Godin, John Piper, & Ravi Zacharias to balance out the REI books.

Cap rates really depend on location in Maine. Portland is hot right now so cap rates are low, maybe 5-6% on multi families. Where I am you can pick up properties with an 8-10 cap rate if you get a good deal.

How are things in AZ? I'm headed out for the day, but will check in later.
