A Review of 2016

2016 was a decent year comprising the following achievements:

- developed a daily yoga and meditation practice (my most prized achievement this year!)

- started practising stoicism and mindfulness (still a work in progress)

- converted from a “goals-approach” to a “systems-approach” to keeping fit and healthy (thus enabling me to exercise more and develop a healthier diet in an enjoyable and therefore, sustainable, manner)

- spent a lot of quality time with loved ones

- saved S$50,000 in cash

- read up about insurance and upgraded my integrated shield plan

- overcame analysis paralysis and started investing in the STI and some local bonds 

- started an Interactive Brokers account 

- developed net-worth and expenses tracking systems and habits

- made some peace with working at a job (still a work in progress)

- updated my CV frequently

- finally decided to “step out of the shadows” (hence this blog)

I hope to spend the next few days charting some sort of direction for 2017.

Enjoy the last few days of 2016, everyone!


  1. Hi Snowybear,

    Good set of achievements :)

    Happy new year!

  2. Hi Snowybear,

    That's a good list of achievements for the year 2016. Perhaps you can consider writing about how you continue to develop some of them in the year 2017. Looking forward to that!


  3. 50k in cash is an achievement. Keep it up!
