  1. Retire by 40: Guess it’s the Half Full or Half Empty situation. But most people just look at one side of the question. Instead of How Big of a Pile Does One Need, Look at How Much Income Will My Saving Generate. If one decides he\she needs $50,000 than they should seek the safest and best way to invest which slowly generates a higher and higher income. Once they’ve reached the $50k income they’ve reached their goal regardless of the size of the pile.

    The difference for me is that Income is real and growing (unless there is a div cut), where as the Pile is dependent on the Market and varies.
