Since 1999, my financial advisor has asked me to make out a Net Worth statement every year at about the same time of the year. I have been doing so, and plotting the results (vertical is net worth, horizontal is the year), and it has been mostly encouraging watching the graph go up, though for three years most of the gains had been because of the guaranteed part of my pension (which the legislature is now trying to take away ... grrr....) and the rest the appreciation of my residence and reduction of the mortgage balance.
