Let the Payoff Begin!

It's official, operation payoff mortgage has begun! I'm mailing my first extra principal payment today. Having goals work to my advantage because they tend to create a healthy discipline and drive in me. Generally I'm a goal keeper so once I get started, I stay the course until it's achieved ... assuming the goal still makes sense.

Do you set and keep goals?

I love setting goals! I'm a few years behind you in financial goals. Right now, I'm paying off CC debt. I look forward to following your progress. I think it will help keep me focused!

holy crap, that's a brilliant idea!! i like that you stick to your challenges too (as long as they make sense), that's important :)

JPK: Thanks for the kudos.

RTC: Thanks for stopping by. I'll follow your goal progress as well.

J.Money: oh yeah, they gotta make sense. You know how it is, what makes sense this year may not be the best plan next year. LOL.

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog, it led me to yours and I am doing some catching up. :-) Question - I read you are an electronic girl that hates paper, so I am surprised that you snail mailed your extra principal payment. Did you really do this?
