2) The second step involves estimating your present net worth. You do that by entering your best estimates for assets and liabilities.

If your actual net worth is less than the projected amount, that is a signal that you need to employ strategies to save and invest more of your annual income. This spreadsheet also calculates your annualized realized income as a percentage of your net income. Over time you want to see that percentage get smaller.
