One thing I’ve learned the hard way is the importance of setting financial goals. They say ‘the unaimed arrow never misses‘ and I’ve definitely found that to be true. During the times in my life when I’ve not had a goal, I’ve not made any measurable progress.

The week after than I worked form home for a few days because mudslides did damage to the freeway near my home. Last week I was traveling for work and spent four days in Dallas. This morning I woke up to snow.
