I keep a written record of my passive income.
It isn’t an Excel sheet as I still very much enjoy using pen and paper.
I spend so much time on the computer daily that spending some time writing on paper is a nice break from staring at the computer screen.

Preferably, income generating tools should generate predictable passive income too.
Always be prudent and stay pragmatic.
This was a recent video on reducing risk without reducing income:
Not everyone is rich but everyone can be richer.
If AK can do it, so can you!
