If you've been reading this blog and you've been wondering why I number each day, it's because I have given myself a challenge.
I am attempting to generate $20,000 of extra income within 365 days. So far, I've been having fun trying, but I haven't made very much progress.
Today, I realized I've back-tracked! Last month, I won the Oscar betting pool, earning an extra $210. That's goo, right? The thing is, I procrastinated about taking that money to the bank and I gradually spent a little of it here and there, gave some to the wife and kids, bought some popsicles, that sort of thing. When I finally made a deposit into my savings account, the $210 had turned into a single hundred dollar bill.
That means my new challenge total is currently: $317.01.
Cue the wah-wah-wahhhh fail music.
