With 2020 over, a review of not only my portfolio but also the milestones I set myself is in order. Throughout 2020, I updated my milestones, but now it's time to hold them against the light and see which milestones I reached in the end.
2020 is upon us! As I did last year, I will try to aim for certain milestones on both a personal and financial level. I already went over my 2019 milestones, which let us be honest, was so-so. But if I can learn from this and do a better estimation this year then it was worth it to make them.
I want to reach at least 400 EUR in dividend payout. Just like last time I didn’t just pick any number. With Lynx’ Portfolio Analyser giving me a detailed overview with multiple views of my portfolio since inception (or any time period for that matter). One such view is Projected Income (see image to the right). Based on this, albeit incomplete, projection and my 2019 income I’m aiming for 400 EUR.
I say incomplete because for at least two dividend payers, AED and COFB I already know the expected net dividend for 2020. This will be 2.55 EUR/share and ~4 EUR/share respectively. This differs greatly from the projected income in the portfolio analyser. As a result, my aim of 400 EUR shouldn’t be so far fetched.
As explained in my introduction, this year I’m going to strive to finish 4 economics or personal finance books. With the knowledge of last year, even this is still a lot. At the end of 2018 I managed to read two lighter books and that’s about it. That hould really change.
Learning SpanishAprendiendo español
By holding a full conversation with my GF.
My final and second personal milestone is learning a new language. I always had an eye on Spanish but I never got around to really starting it (besides trying a few apps from time to time). However, my girlfriend is Spanish-speaking so I should really learn the language.
This one remains a challenge for me since I’m
not that goodterrible with Romance languages (i.e. French). But I owe it to my GF. She will struggle with Dutch so as support I should aim to learn her native language.
