Nothing to make you feel more crappy than a look back at Mark Zuckerberg’s meteoric rise. I see things like that, and I think that in some sense… working hard through a lack of success is preparation to succeed.
At least I’m basically tracking the overall market in losses…
Even if the market is going to crap, my behavior has still been solid:
$33,233 saved. That’s an average of $4404.13/month. Hooray! More like $3600 if I exclude the mortgage paydown, a number which I’d like to be at least $4000, but it looks like I basically can’t take vacations to visit my family and go on trips like Vietnam and Burning Man without spending that extra $400/month.
This guy has stories about saving in Japan.
