Setting a BHAG

BHAG stands for Big Hairy Audacious Goal.  According to Wikipedia, a Big Hairy Audacious Goal can be described as a strategic business statement similar to a vision statement which is created to focus an organization on a single medium- to long-term organization-wide goal which is audacious, likely to be externally questionable, but not internally regarded as impossible.

While the Wikipedia definition is targeted towards an organization, I like to think a BHAG can be used when setting personal goals as well.

Budgeting Starts and Ends with Us

On Friday, February 1, 2019, my wife and I had our monthly date night. I made reservations for us at a new restaurant that had been recommended to us many times for their excellent atmosphere and food. I left work to pick my wife up from our home and she looked absolutely beautiful. We got to the restaurant, sat at our table, and then it began. See, this wasn’t an ordinary date and the conversation may not have been what you were expecting.
