Comparisons with others are always interesting. I’m very competitive. Usually, I see everything as a game and I want to win. What’s a better metric to track than your net worth against the nation’s average net worth?
Winning in the world of personal finance doesn’t really exist. Most likely I will not become the most wealthy person on the planet, not even the most wealthy in my little country.
But it’s good to compare, to see where you stand. A comparison can be a reality check to see whether you have to step up your game, or you’re doing a great job already.
