Two minor successes
« on: March 27, 2018, 09:35:52 AM »
On my meandering path towards FIRE I've hit two goals today I wanted to share:

  • Contributed the full ISA allowance for the first time ever;
  • Personal net worth (pensions & ISAs, doesn't include property) hit six figures for the first time

Small acorns, but wanted to share with people on the same wavelength!

never give up

Congrats londonstache. These successes are a bit bigger than a small acorn I would say.

Great work, londonstache. Both gratifying milestones. Life is just that little sweeter.
I really want to do things other than work... :-)

Well done. The first £100k is the hardest!

Next step, use up the full pension allowance too ;-)

Well done Londonstache.  Congratulations on the six figures and don't let it get you down that 'significant' milestones seem further apart in money terms from now on.  Compounding will help that stash snowball and you'll hit them faster than you think!

Charlie Munger:

“I don’t care what you have to do—if it means walking everywhere and not eating anything that wasn’t purchased with a coupon, find a way to get your hands on $100,000. After that, you can ease off the gas a little bit.”

Of course, none of us will ease off the gas will we? :)
