One step to building wealth is to measure and track your financial progress. Not tracking your financial progress is like driving with your eyes closed, you have no idea where you’ve been or where you are going, and you are probably going to have an accident.
There is one true measure of wealth - how much you own. It's called 'net worth'. Net worth is the king of personal financial calculations and the most important scorecard in the game of wealth-building.
Net worth in its simplest form is total assets less total liabilities. You add up the value of all assets you own: real estate, bank accounts, investment portfolios, retirement funds, tangible items (cars, collections, ...), etc. Then you subtract every debt you owe: credit card balances, mortgages, car loans, student loans, etc. The difference is your net worth. It's the amount you truly own.
Net worth is the single-most important financial measure to track. It not only tells you how much you own, but when looked at over time it lets you know whether your wealth is increasing or decreasing and by how much. It's an accurate measure of how you're doing in growing your wealth. It is like giving yourself a grade every month and helps keep your spending/savings for the month accountable. It could give you answers to questions like 'how am I doing?' and, 'am I going to be O.K.?'.
