It was interesting due to the fact it was the first realization of my current and possibly future financial situation. I have a whole new perspective for the success of my future goals. Incorporating this sheet as a picture to personal finances allowed me to recognize the next effect of creating a budget. Having a visual projection of cash flow will likely develop a better attitude toward creating the next improvement in future goals.
