There are instances in which one will wonder whether cash flow or net worth is better. My take is that net worth is better. This is due to the accumulation of the net worth which can be channelled into the investment portfolio which will generate dividends (i.e known as cash flow as per my perspective) on a continuous basis. It will take a significant amount of time to accumulate the sizeable networth. It may take a few years or a decade or a few decade to achieve such milestone. It does not matter as per my perspective. As long as there is an increase in the monthly net worth, the result is achieved.
One can get the free time to do the things of his/her interest. The expenses will be taken care by the passive income generated by the investment portfolio.
The above assessment is my view and there is no right or wrong answer. One will know his/her preference and make the decision which one will perceive to be appropriate for him/her.
