Always when you start with something new I think it´s important that you have a goal, no matter what it is. It should be an attainable goal, but not to easy to reach.
My long term goal with eToro is simply to make enough money to be able to work less. I work as a programmer, normal days is 8 hours but sometimes more. I like my work and I like my colleagues, but after eight hours in front of a computer my eyes and head are tired. When I get home im just too tired to do anything at all, apart from watching TV. If I worked less I would be able to spend more time on my hobbies, such as fishing, working out and playing guitar.
So my goal is to cover 20% of my income so i can work 6 hours a day instead. Right now, I cover around 5-10% of my income, so it´s not that far away.
