It's a good idea to know your net worth every year. This number works as a financial "report card". By keeping track of your net worth each year, you will know how you are progressing toward meeting your financial goals - and now that we're at the beginning of a year, you should be receiving all of your 2012 year-end financial statements. Do it every year at this time so you know where you stand financially.
