Net worth is something I track to remind my why I do the following three things. I work hard, I diligently save and I invest for the long term. It allows me to look at the big picture from a high level and gauges how I'm performing to my retirement plan. As my net worth grows, I expect my dividend income to also grow. My Net Worth provides peace of mind knowing that I'm being responsible today for a more comfortable future. Allow tracking your net worth to highlight your entire financial picture and become a long term habit.
