I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

One blog reader, CH said that he has learned the most important lesson here: Performance measurement. It is this measurement that should matter most.

Why do you want to spend some of your time (the most precious commodity in your life)  to invest your hard-earned money?

There is only one reason to do it that is to grow your money and the rate of growing this money cannot be ignored. It must be diligently tracked to give you periodic and consistent feedback on your investing performance. With this feedback, you can then objectively review and revise your 3M - Method, Mind, and Money to meet your investing goals. Without measuring CAGR or XIRR on your investment portfolio, you may be drifting along your investing journey by feeling good and positive about it.


  1. Hi,
    What ever method you use to track your
    investments, always perform a year end absolute valuation of your wealth. Check how much your wealth has increased/deceased since 52 weeks ago. If it is increasing every 52 weeks,(at least enough to beat "inflation"), congratulation then. If not find out why and how to do things differently. Of course some of you may have set a target to beat. If you have
    achieved it then maybe set a higher new target.
    My target is no target.
    How about you.

  2. I look into my portfolio when i am seemingly making losses, as that is a good time to buy.

    I also look at it when i am seemingly making lots of money, as that is a good time to sell.
