Next month I will resign from my job to seek the true meaning of life. Life is short and I may die soon. You never know, you can suddenly die at the age of 60 due to cancer. I am already 53.

I will then no longer be earning more than $100k pa as a salaried employee but only $36k pa as a poor landlord. I have no other liabilities. I will focus on doing charity and helping the poor.

I don't think people suddenly die due to cancer, heart attack maybe.

Interesting forum this. Many views and opinions. Here is my story.

25 years ago, my wife & I set a target of $1M to save (not including the property we stay in) and then retire or to shift gear to a more relaxed lifestyle. We achieved that in 15 yrs. Seeing how the cost of living has crept up, we raised that target to $1.5M. We hit that target in 5 more yrs. Again, with persistent high inflation, we raised the target once more to $2M, we hit that 2 yrs ago. Now at 50 yrs of age, we still have not achieved peace of mind to call it a day. Our target now is $3M. With careful investment and passive income of $80K per yr, we are well on our way to hit $3M in 3 yrs time.

It dawned on us that what will give peace of mind is the continuous stream of income rather than the amount saved. With $3M, I think we could generate a stable stream of passive income of $120K per yr. I think then we could either retire or shift gear.

Thanks for your story. Could you also share why you are aiming for $120k per year? Is this your annual expenditure? Or have you included a buffer for future inflation and unexpected expenses (like medical?).
