Congratulations, you did pretty good.

For me:
Retirement funds up 22.5%, performance of all investements was +8.3%

Barebones retirement is 5 years away, comfortable retirement is 8 years away, using somewhat conservative assumptions on ROR and inflation. FI is 1.5 years away if I and the family want to eat Ramen every night. I guess the overall increase in Net Worth was 32% over last year
(exceptional one time event), but I don't really track that number on a yearly basis since that's not what I will use for FIRE.
